Do you have any idea how much sugar you consume in a typical day?
For many decades, people have blamed saturated fat for heart disease which is the #1 killer in the world. However new studies are showing that saturated fat is harmless But the evidence is mounting that sugar, NOT fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on metabolism
According to USDA estimates, the average American consumes roughly 32 teaspoons of added sugar every single day or 27 pounds of the stuff in a year. Most troubling of all isn’t the sugar we add to our coffee; it’s the stuff we don’t even know we’re eating, ingredients, which are found in healthy-sounding foods like spinach salads, yogurt, acai bowls, and fitness smoothies.
Eating too many added sugars triggers your body to store fat around your belly, which is one reason it is a leading cause of increased diabetes risk. Until now, there’s been no way to tell how much added sugar you’re eating—or how to avoid it without sacrifice. But with the simple steps in Zero Sugar Diet, you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods and strip away unnecessary sugars—losing weight at a rate of up to one pound per day, while still enjoying the sweeter things in life.
With Zero Sugar Diet, #1 New York Times bestselling author David Zinczenko continues his twenty-year mission to help Americans live their happiest and healthiest lives, uncovering revolutionary new research that explains why you can’t lose weight—and shows that it’s not your fault! The true culprit is sugar—specifically added sugars—which food manufacturers sneak into almost everything we eat, from bread to cold cuts to yogurt, peanut butter, pizza, and even “health” foods.
By replacing empty calories with essential ones—swapping in whole foods and fiber and swapping out added sugars—you’ll conquer your cravings and prevent the blood sugar surge that leads to some of the worst health scourges in America today, including abdominal fat, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, liver disease, fatigue, and tooth decay.
The Zero Sugar Diet works by confronting the two main issues that are making weight loss so difficult, and that set our own bodies against us:
- Our food has too much sugar.
- Our food has too little fiber.
Zinczenko warns consumers to pay attention to sugars added to everyday foods. He compared the amount of sugar in foods like yogurt to the amount of sugar in doughnuts. Check out the following:
- Pasta Sauce: Sugar or corn syrup is a predominant ingredient in many popular brands. A quarter-cup of one particular brand of pasta sauce contains 12 grams of sugar, the same as in one glazed doughnut.
- Yogurt: Be careful of fruit on the bottom and mix-ins like granola or cereal, which now come in popular flip containers. They have more than 27 grams of sugar, almost as much as in three glazed doughnuts.
- Smoothie: Most smoothies start with a base of frozen yogurt or fruit juice. A smoothie from one popular chain has 250 grams of sugar, about the same as in 25 doughnuts.
Life can be enhanced by good health then why not say goodbye to added sugars—and goodbye to your belly—with Zero Sugar Diet!
