Sweet way to healthy life

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BMS INDULGE -

SUG­ARY foods are gen­er­ally high in empty calo­ries and pro­vide lit­tle nu­tri­tion. But, it’s not just the empty calo­ries that are prob­lem­atic – too much su­gar ac­tu­ally sets off sev­eral re­ac­tions in your body that can lead to weight gain.

Su­gar trig­gers in­sulin re­lease, a hor­mone that sig­nals your body to store en­ergy from food. If you are con­stantly con­sum­ing foods with a lot of su­gar, your in­sulin is con­stantly high, so en­ergy is more likely stored as fat. Man­ag­ing your su­gar in­take helps bal­ance your in­sulin lev­els and re­duce your risk of get­ting di­a­bet­ics, a pre­ventable ill­ness with healthy life­style changes.

The World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion (WHO) rec­om­mends that no more than 6% to 10% of your to­tal daily calo­ries come from added su­gar. If you are try­ing to lose weight, cut down on added su­gar grad­u­ally. While eat­ing right is im­por­tant, you don’t have to give up sweets en­tirely or re­sign yourself to a life­time of bland health food.

You may re­place the high calo­rie su­gar with Trop­i­cana Slim sweet­en­ers and Su­gar Free Drinks that con­tain zero or low calo­ries.

Ex­perts say that los­ing just 5% to 10% of your to­tal weight can help lower your blood su­gar con­sid­er­ably, as well as lower your blood pres­sure and choles­terol lev­els.
