Everything labelled healthy might not be healthy.
I often meet people who say ‘but I am doing everything right and still not losing weight.
Trust me, they are not.
Today though, I do not want to talk about fixing your nutrition, but rather about the food we eat in the name of ‘health’ that might actually be bad for us.
Sugar consumption leads to the growth of sugar-loving inflammatory bacteria in our stomach. This leads to more cravings for sugar, like a smoker craves nicotine. Very few of us have desserts every day, and our sugar consumption is honestly reduced to no more than 1 tbsp with our chai- coffee. Why then do we continue to struggle with sugar cravings?
Because the sugar industry is very sneaky and hides sugar in literally anything we eat or drink. Sure, they do not use the word ‘sugar’ in their ingredients, but how often have we seen:
The list really goes on and on. Sugar is often used in savory food also to mask the taste of preservation and additives. Here are some of the common foods you can find sugar in.
Saffola Masala oats: The second ingredient mentioned on their list is maltodextrin (artificial sweetener)! You might as well have a can of soda for breakfast.
Kissan Fresh tomato ketchup: How about adding a tbsp of pure sugar to your sandwich instead?
Britannica Whole Wheat bread: And you thought it is healthy because it is whole wheat.
Yoga Bars: Energy bars on the go? Think again.
Epigamia Greek Yogurt: Now their ‘sugar-free flavor’ also has ‘fruit pulp’. They label it as ‘natural sugar’. Fruit juice/ pulp without the fiber is still as bad as sugar!
Still wondering why you constantly have sugar cravings in spite of eating healthy?
Hope this helps!
Loving you always,
