Men vs Women: Who consumes more sugar?

March 24, 2016

 

 

 

Pass on the soda and skip the sugary cereal. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that a whopping 13% of adults’ total calories come from added sugar. That’s too much: Dietary guidelines say that sugar and fats combined should make up only 5% to 15% of your total calories. And men between the ages of 20 and 59 are the biggest consumers.

 

Added Sugar Disguises Itself

Don’t be fooled by code names on food labels. You can know a food has added sugar if you see terms like brown sugar, corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, glucose, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit-juice concentrate, honey, molasses, raw sugar, rice syrup and sucrose.

Need help cutting down on the sweet stuff? Try these 8 tips:

  1. Avoid fruit drinks (even 100% fruit juices are essentially sugar and water in disguise), sports drinks, energy drinks and soda. Instead, replace them with beverages like Longevity or water.

  2. Look for whole grain breakfast cereals that contain 8 grams of sugar or less per serving.

  3. Instead of syrup, use fresh fruit or fruit puree for a sweet treat on pancakes and waffles. Maple syrup adds about 12 grams of sugar per tablespoon.

  4. Limit your alcohol intake. Alcohol is made from sugar and acts like sugar in the body.

  5. Ditch the flavored creamers in your morning coffee. Just 1 tablespoon can add 6 grams of sugar. Instead, brew your cup of Joe with a cinnamon stick or vanilla bean. Or try sweetening your java with a natural cashew milk.

  6. Tomato sauce can have up to 14 grams of sugar per cup. Use crushed canned whole tomatoes to make your own sauce. One cup contains only 8 grams of sugar.

  7. Condiments such as barbecue sauce and ketchup are notoriously high in sugar. Try using malt vinegar to get some tangy flavor on your food.

  8. Since cookies, cakes and candies are a huge source of added sugars, don’t buy large, warehouse-sized boxes. Stick to smaller, supermarket-size packages. And don’t be quick to replenish the supply once it’s been gobbled up.

WHY DO YOU NEED THIS?
 

 

The best answer is vital nutrition. S.U.P.A.™ products aid the body by providing essential nutrients and antioxidants. S.U.P.A.™ makes vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants immediately accessible to the body. These have been shown to renew the liver and cleanses organs, tissue and brain cells.

 

Cells in the body require nutrients (i.e. vitamins and minerals) to function optimally. Many of these are referred to as micronutrients, to distinguish them from the macronutrient (Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats) that you may already be familiar with. When cells receive adequate micronutrients, you feel energized and full. On the other hand, most processed/nutrition-poor foods provide calories from macronutrients, but are devoid of the essential micronutrients cells crave. Unfortunately many Americans eat diets, commonly known as the Standard American Diet or S.A.D. for short, that are calorically dense while lacking vital nutrients.

 

Never fear S.U.P.A.™ is here!!!

 

 

Let's look at a few more reasons why S.U.P.A.™ products are so powerful.
Just to name a few, they provide: 

 

(1) Fiber. 

This is the indigestible portion of plants. Diets high in fiber are associated with lower risks of heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, and obesity.  

 

(2) Phytonutrients. 

These are a family of chemicals found only in plants that often give the color to vegetables but also confer many health benefits.

 

(3) Antioxidants. 

Many chemcials found in plants confer a resistance to the damage that can occur to the human body from oxygen and the process of metabolism. . 

 

(4) Omega-3 fatty acids. 

These essential fatty acids, including DHA and EPA, are taken into cell membranes and used for the internal workings and repair of cells throughout the body.
