How bad is sugar?

How bad is sugar

After watching Dr. Eric Berg’s videos on YouTube, I have cut out sugar completely. Well, almost completely because there is so much sugar hidden in so much food.

Here are some extracts from Dr. Eric Berg’s YouTube videos about sugar:

Sugar doesn’t just cause weight gain—it has negative effects on almost every part of your body.

Sugar affects your red blood cells. A1C is a test that measures how much sugar is stuck to your red blood cells. If you have an A1C of 5.7% or less, that would be considered normal. An A1C between 5.7% and 6.4% would be considered prediabetes, and 6.4% or higher would be considered diabetes. A healthy red blood cell is flexible, and it should be able to free flow and carry oxygen through the body. Sugar lowers the ability of the red blood cells to carry oxygen and reduces the volume of red blood cells. An unhealthy red blood cell that has sugar stuck to it will be very stiff and sticky.

This can cause clots and can cut off blood flow to certain tissues, which can lead to necrosis, gangrene, and infections.

It can also cause problems with the eyes, including diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to blindness.

Other areas of the body that are affected are the gums, kidneys, and arteries.

An A1C test is a better test than a blood sugar test, and it can even be done right at home using a home testing kit.

It doesn’t take much sugar to raise your glucose and create a high A1C causing negative effects on your body. Instead of only trying to treat the symptoms of this issue, start working on your diet.

Try cutting out sugar and getting on the Healthy Keto diet, and see how much better you feel.

Please watch this video that explains the above writing from Dr. Eric Berg:

You May Never Eat SUGAR Again after Watching This – YouTube

There’s too much sugar in fruit.

Even in a medium-sized apple, there are 19 grams of sugar. you should avoid all fruit juices. They are completely filled with sugar with hardly any nutrients. Fruit juice companies also add corn syrup to many types of juice, which is very bad for your blood sugar levels.

Berries are the exception. 1/2-1 cup of berries a day can be beneficial. Berries are low in sugar and high in antioxidants and other vital nutrients.

Blackberries are the best with 4 grams of carbs per 3/4ths of a cup, then comes raspberries, then strawberries, and lately the blueberries, which have 12 grams of carbs.

What sweeteners can I use?

Monk Fruit, Stevia, and Erythritol sweeteners all have 0 glycemic index which means they will not increase insulin. While Xylitol has a 30 glycemic index, it is low but there’s still a spike. He also talks about how Erythritol and Xylitol give digestive problems when consumed in larger amounts.

• Monk Fruit – There’s a slight aftertaste

• Stevia – Good for flavoring water

• Erythritol – Has a cold sweet taste

• Xylitol

Get Your Glucose From Proteins, Fats, and Amino Acids

People often have an idea that your body — especially your brain — can only run on glucose. But that’s not true! You can run your body on ketones, which provide about forty to seventy percent of the energy you need. Of course, the question becomes, what kind of fuel makes up the difference? There will always be a small amount of glucose, but your body can run on fatty acids. Fat turns into ketones and fatty acids.

Your brain is a little different; it can use ketones for seventy percent of its fuel, with the rest coming from lactate or glucose. Where will you get the glucose if you don’t want to eat carbohydrates? Your body makes its own, in a process called gluconeogenesis. Your body uses fat and protein to make glucose. Certain amino acids in protein turn into glucose, as does a component of fat which breaks down into glycerol, then converts to glucose. Your body can easily get the glucose it needs from fat and protein. You don’t need carbohydrates to supply glucose.

Thank you, Dr. Berg, you have changed my life.

There are a lot of recipes that don’t need any sugar, for example, Keto fudge.

Being a bird lover, and I am the content creator of a bird magazine called World Wide Birds, sugar also affects your birds. Have a look at this blog post from Tony Silva:

Commercial fruits have been produced to become ultra sweet.

Did you know that sugar is also bad for dogs?
