In the world of health and fitness, carbohydrates and fat are villains, which are macronutrients along with protein that your body needs in large amounts to provide energy and to aid in growth and body function. We also required micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals – but in much smaller amounts. According to Angela Luciani, RD, LDN, a registered dietitian said in an interview with Philly.com, that eating more calories that your body required can lead to weight gain. She also added that cutting out entire food groups can lead to nutritional shortfalls and unpleasant side effects. Many people incorrectly believe that only sugar causes type 2 diabetes. In reality, the insulin resistance associated with type 2 diabetes can be thought of as carbohydrate intolerance; type 2 diabetes is a side effect of consuming too many carbohydrates relative to a person’s carbohydrate tolerance, which can cause blood sugar to spike. You can start using a carb counter to monitor your carb intake and it is a great way to stay on track!

Whole Health Source: By 2606, the US Diet will be 100 Percent Sugar

The US diet has changed dramatically in the last 200 years.  Many of these changes stem from a single factor: the industrialization and commercialization of the American food system.  We’ve outsourced most of our food preparation, placing it into the hands of professionals whose interests aren’t always well aligned with ours.

There are two types of sugars in American diet : naturally occurring sugars (Fructose, lactose) and added sugars (sweeteners, white sugar, brown sugar, honey, corn syrup). The major sources of added sugars in American diets are regular soft drinks, sugars, candy, cakes, cookies, pies and fruit drinks. As the following graphic shows, the US diet will be 100 percent sugar by 2606 if current trends continue. Although the American Heart Association recommends women consume no more than six teaspoons of added sugar per day (or about 100 calories), most of us take in double that.
