The other programme I wanted to talk about was The Truth about Sugar,did you see that one?
I found this programme fascinating, I did know a lot of the places where sugar was hidden, but seeing that a tin of baked beans contains 6 teaspoons of sugar, is quite eye opening, would you agree?
I talk lots about sugar and I think you all know that I really struggle to avoid the sweet stuff.
For me though its the obvious places, chocolate, biscuits and cakes, but we all know they are loaded with sugar, right?
We are unaware though that our bran flakes have sugar in, or that when we eat a bowl of pasta that also is loaded with sugar.
Its obvious that the food industry wants to make the food attractive and tasty for us and so that is why they pump them with sugar, the low fat food that we have been conditioned over the years to think is better for us tend to be full of sugar to compensate for the taste as well!
I also was interested to see what sugar does to our insides, not only does it pack the pounds on but it is very ageing and can lead to heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
I think everything in moderation, I try to live a sugar free life and encourage my clients to do so, but we are all human and will inevitably want a dessert or a cake occasionally.
It is being informed I think, if we can avoid the processed foods and the places where sugar is hidden then it leaves us able to enjoy the occasional treat from an informed place.
As this weekend is Easter I am sure lots of you will be enjoying an Easter egg, as will I !!!!
Enjoy it but remember to perhaps cut back on the processed food over Easter.
I think a great thing to do is read the labels on everything in your cupboards to see where sugar is hidden away, hit reply and tell me the most surprising place you found it?
