Most people can eat sugar without gaining weight, but if you are one of those people who has a glucose problem, then sugar could be contributing to your weight gain. People who cut back on their sugar intake, generally lose a few pounds, but don't see huge weight loss results.
What are people also lowering when they give up sugar? You guessed it, fat. All those sugary treats usually have a ton of fat in them. So when people lose weight by giving up sugar, they are also losing weight by lowering their fat calorie percentage! Fat is the biggest contributor to gaining weight, and is the biggest contributor to losing weight!
Healthier substitutes for sugar would be honey or organic agave. These still turn acidic into your body like sugar does, but they are healthier on a molecular level...which we will discuss in some future post!
