A New Study in The Journal of The American Medical Association - Controlling your Appetite by controlling which types of sugar you intake!
When it comes to controlling your appetite, fructose, the sugar naturally found in fruit, (and is the best way to provide your brain the glucose it needs, and it is added to processed foods & drinks in the artificial form of high-fructose corn syrup, could be your BIGGEST enemy in the fight to curb overeating and constant hunger. All sodas are loaded with HFCS, diet sodas are even worse with their dangerous artificial sugars such as aspertame, and the new one to "trick" you into "aspertame free" - Acesulfame K, just a variation of aspertame itself. HFCS is in salad dressings, condiments, and even bread!!!! Why is sugar in BREAD???!!!!When study participants drank a beverage high in simple sugar glucose (fructose from natural fruit sources), hunger signals lessened, but not when they swallowed the drink loaded with HFCS, they became hungrier. When it comes to energizing your body and mind, stick with whole forms of glucose - whole grains such as oats, barley, quinoa & brown rice as well as veggies in a variety of colors to reap the most nutrients. Enjoy fructose from fresh fruits such as cherries, plums, peaches, grapes and dates. To sweeten your drinks & recipes, go for natural sources of sugar such as honey, agave, molasses and stevia.
