www.180degreesgym.com personal trainers in Poole give you 3 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO QUIT SUGAR and how it will help you lose weight fast.
#1. SUGAR STOPS FAT BURNING BY TRIGGERING INSULIN RELEASE
According to The Journal of Clinical Investigation, “Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) is the principal mechanism of insulin secretion.”
Glucose is quite simply blood sugar, and any sugar that you eat causes a rise in blood sugar, and the release of insulin into the bloodstream.
According to Dr. Gregory Ellis, even a tiny release of insulin into the bloodstream can decrease fat release and fat burning by more than 40%. So if a teaspoon of sugar can reduce fat burning by 40%, imagine what just one donut could do to your fat burning efforts? Not good if you’re one of our www.180degreesgym.com personal training clients.
#2. SUGAR CAUSES AGING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF GLYCATION
What is glycation? Put simply it is the bonding of a sugar molecule to a protein or lipid.
Here is what the Journal of Nutrition has to say about fructose and other sugars:
“Fructose intake has increased steadily during the past two decades. Fructose, like other sugars, can react with proteins through the Maillard reaction (glycation), which may account for several complications of diabetes mellitus and accelerating aging.”
When the crust turns brown on a loaf of baking bread, that browning is the result of the glycation process. Now, you may not mind the fact that glycation makes bread brown and crusty, but I certainly don’t want glycation to be causing browning and flakiness in the cels and tissues of my body: especially my skin.
#3. SUGAR CONSUMPTION INTERFERES WITH FEELINGS OF FULLNESS & SATIETY
According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition:
“… it has been hypothesized that sugars, especially those used as caloric sweeteners, when consumed in drinks, contribute to excess energy intake through bypassing regulatory systems and by exacerbating hunger.”
CBE news reported on a study that tracked changes in the brain that are caused by sugar:
“For the small study, published Jan. 2 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), scientists used magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, scans to track blood flow in the brain in 20 young, normal-weight people before and after they had drinks containing glucose or fructose in two sessions spaced several weeks apart.
The brain scans showed that drinking glucose “turns off or suppresses the activity of areas of the brain that are critical for reward and desire for food,” said one study leader, Dr. Robert Sherwin, chief of endocrinology at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Conn.”
In other words, you may have had more than enough sugar to spike insulin and stop fat burning, but your brain won’t get any “I’m full” signals to tell it to stop eating!
