What Does Sugar Actually Do To Your Body?

August 28, 2019

it’s interesting when we design our
studies we provide diets that are high in starch and then we take away that starch and replaced it with sugar why do we even see such unfavorable effects
when we replace pasta or bread with a fructose sweetened beverage or let’s even
say high fructose corn syrup sweetened beverage well to answer that question
we’re gonna start first with the glucose the grains that we eat and we call carbs
are pretty much pure glucose and it goes into our bloodstream slowly cause it takes a while for those enzymes in the intestine to break it all down the
glucose leads the intestine in what we call the portal vein and that veins
first stop is the liver if the liver needs energy that liver is going to pull
the glucose in if the liver has enough energy most of the glucose bypasses
the liver and is delivered to the rest of the body it gets to be used by any
other place in the body that needs glucose now with fructose its different
we’re talking about fructose in the fructose sweetened beverages are subjects
consumed but we’re also talking about the fructose in sodas because high
fructose corn syrup contains fructose so fructose is in the intestine and it too is
delivered directly to the liver however there’s an enzyme there that’s always
turned on so it takes any fructose it can get its hands on even if the liver
has enough energy very little fructose gets delivered to
the rest of the body so what we end up is this fructose overload in the liver
it needs to start storing it as fat when you increase your levels of liver fat
you’re gonna have more fat heading out into the blood with more fat heading out
in the blood you end up with higher levels of
triglycerides and cholesterol both of them risk factors for cardiovascular disease
there’s another problem we believe liver fat decreases insulin’s ability to do
its job thats increases your risk of diabetes there’s another problem when your
insulin isn’t working well it also causes more fructose to be turned into
fat and it is also going to increase the amount of fat that liver
sends into the blood there’s another problem this group that consumed fructose tended to gain that weight within the abdominal cavity this is what we
call visceral fat that makes us apple shaped so what we have is this vicious
cycle going on that’s really why metabolic syndrome tends to be a group
of problems they make this little vicious cycle where one makes the other
worse and they just go around in this circle what we all need to do is get to
the point where sugar is a special occasion food it’s not a staple and
that’s where we need to think about our foods and what they can be doing to our
health are you wondering how much sugar you’re eating click on this video to find

    I have one question about pregnancy and insulin levels: is it that pregnancy increases insulin levels and therefore women want to eat more because they feel hungry OR is it that they can even eat normally and increased insulin levels make them gain weight? Or is it both at the same time?

  • Reply Deno Vassell March 16, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    I doubt they're promoting pasta and bread, just saying they substituted those items in the subjects' diets. NO PROCESSED SUGAR OR FOODS… STRAIGHT ORGANIC FRUITS, ROOTS, NUTS, VEGETABLES AND WAAAAAAATA!….. lets hope we can sustain this AND MAKE IT BETTER!

    It's the grocery stores Stay away from the middle sections as you know this is all sugar foods. Retrain your brain to detox by combatting to much sugar. Sleeping a lot is a sign of addiction, and a sign of to much toxicity not enough alkalinity can certainly cause more health problems beyond your organs but, also in the brain. Sugar is a pleasure drug for your brain so addiction is often common and urges will sneak up on you especially if your on medication.

    This is stupid and has not provided any real scientific evidence. if you want to be lean and healthy eat a low fat high carb diet with no animal products. keep the fat you eat very low and eat as much sugar as you want. Fructose isn't going to make you fat.

    Simplify the message for the general public please. All the fancy terminology doesn't help lay people who are struggling with weight/obesity or diabetes. My elderly aunt died recently because she ate sugary foods daily without discretion. She had a terrible weight problem and diabetes. Just come right out and say that eating sugary foods and sugary drinks regularly to excess will make you overweight, cause you to get diabetes, and basically send you to an early grave.

    The human body absorbs Emulsified FAT which is stored in the liver.
    These globs of FAT remain until bile, that is produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder, mixes with the large fat droplets. Bile contains bile salts, which act as an emulsifier of lipids.

    Thanks! But what about honey? And I mean the local pure none processed honey and not the one in the store

  • Reply Chris Freely January 14, 2018 at 8:29 pm

    Very simple, look at photos of people from the start of 80s and earlier. Notice something; they're almost all thin. There were no gyms, no power drinks no diets, people actually had a problem with gaining weight, why is that? Their foods were high in fat but no processed sugar. They actually used to sell lard in cans, so women could gain weight and be "more attractive".

    This was the time before they started adding sugar to everything. You want to lose weight and keep it off? The gym isn't going to help, you can never outwork a poor diet. It's simple, stop drinking soda/pop/carbonated drinks, when you go to the grocery 99% of your food should be from the meat, fruit, veg sections, in other words, the perimeter the only thing you should buy from the inside, center of the store are toiletries and water.

    Throw away your gym membership and eat delicious high-fat foods, do not get fooled by "organic" anything. Do this and you'll lose weight faster and easier than ever before, but if you want to stay fat, miserable and throw money away, then keep your sweets. "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." -3 John 1:2 Even God wants you to be healthy.

    God bless you all…

    I don't drink/eat sugar for a looong time now, I only drink water and eat food. No candy, no sugar rich deserts etc. My body feels great, I loss weight, no more headache. One thing I wondering is that how fat people would drink this, in my opinion they don't respect their bodys, you decide what's coming into your body and no one else. Sugar is a devestating shit.

    sugar isn't bad for you and doesn't make you fat, and it actually cures diabetes. don't believe the bs. people tell you sugar and carbs are bad for you because the medical industry needs sick people to survive. cancer and diabetes is huge busine$$. if the medical industry told people the truth, which is that fruits and veggies cure cancer and sugar cures diabetes, they would be out of business very quick. there have been ZERO studies showing that sugar causes diabetes or makes you fat.

    I would appreciate if "experts" distinguish between type 1 and type 2 diabetes! Just to say "diabetes" is a WRONG information as we speak about two very different illnesses with completely different causes! Unfortunately they have a similar name due to the same treatment.

    That means, eating sugar does not cause type 1 diabetes as this is an autoimmune reaction were the cause and the cure is yet to be found. Whereas type 2 diabetes is directly linked with overeating sugar and can be cured through healthy eating!

    Other side note: She mentioned different effects in the body when eating bread or pasta. This is true but speaking about diabetes for type 1 and 2, bread and pasta is nearly as bad as pure sugar for those people. White pasta has no nutritional value but consists only of carbohydrates. All carbs are being converted into sugar in the body! Another dish such as vegetables would be much more appropriate if we want to address healthier eating for type 2 diabetics!
