I have decided to take out the sugar in my coffee and tea and replace it with raw honey. Im always trying to do new things with my new lifestyle change...I would like to exempt all sugar from my diet, and Ive also heard that eliminating refined sugar entirely is beneficial for the body as well as weight loss
This is true, but question is how do we eliminate ALL sugar! For example ketchup has a small amount of sugar in it, I know there are natural ketchups you can buy which is fine, but even quinoa has sugar in it!! I dont eat processed foods at ALL, I eat quinoa all the time..I also eat my almond butter which is suppose to be a healthy fat...so why should I eliminate this?
My point is, is that everything has sugar in it..even if we cut down significantly we are still getting some. I will cut down on ketchup etc.. but is this still beneficial? The question I am asking is..
Can we still achieve the same effects by SIGNIFICANTLY cutting most of the sugars out of our diet? And what I mean by most is that only including some of the hidden sugars like almond butter's and the grain quinoa?
We can make adjustments, like no processed foods(which are extremely unhealthy anyways), condiments, cereals and salad dressings..but will it be the same as cutting out sugar completely!
Which in my opinion seems like a very hard task to do considering almost every food has a small amount of sugar in it..including healthy foods.
What is your take on this?
