Caroline Hartz is from Australia, a mother of three children, 70 years old, and she looks great. A woman admits that 28 years ago she was literally addicted to sugar and sweets. “Most women after 50 years of age believe that it is impossible to maintain body shape and weight. Even after 40 women who have children are sure that it is impossible to return the old figure. ”
Caroline assures that everything is possible, you just need to really want it and work hard. And, admittedly, her body is the best confirmation of her words.
“With age, our metabolism slows down. This means that you have to take control of your body, make health decisions and work for yourself a little more. ”
“I think it is very important to pay attention to what and how much you eat. Thoughtlessness always leads to excess weight. Enjoy every bite. It will help you not to overeat. ”
For the past 28 years, Caroline Hartz does not eat sugar.She found an alternative - xylitol (Xylitol), a polyhydric alcohol in the form of colorless crystals, soluble in water. By its caloric content, xylitol is close to sugar, sweetness is close to sucrose, but has no biological value.
According to Caroline Hartz, obesity in Australia has already reached the level of the epidemic, and one of the reasons for this is sugar.
“I gave up sugar 28 years ago. The first time was very hard, because I was crazy about sweets and could not live without it. I am sure that it is precisely because I do not eat sugar that my health is in perfect order and I do not have excess weight. ” Australian does not urge to completely abandon your favorite foods and drinks - everything should be in moderation.
Plays an important role and sleep. Caroline Hartz tries to sleep at least eight hours a day so that her body and mind are restored. Another Australian calls for meditation: “Every day before work, I meditate for half an hour, it helps me a lot throughout the day. I have become calmer and more collected since I began to meditate at the age of 65. It’s never too late to start. ”
Women of 20 and 30 years old Caroline Hartz advises to live life to the fullest. “Be happy, rejoice in the success of others and never worry about age. Do not listen to anyone, be yourself.Yes, life is far from perfect, put up with it. ”
“There is no such thing as failure. It’s just a stone on the road to success. ”
It must be recalled that the sugar that is consumed by man is deposited in the liver in the form of glycogen. If the glycogen stores in the liver exceed the normal rate, the eaten sugar begins to be deposited in the form of fat reserves, usually the areas on the thighs and abdomen. There are some data from studies that suggest that by consuming sugar along with fat, absorption of the second in the body improves. Simply put, the consumption of sugar in large quantities leads to obesity. As already mentioned, sugar is a high-calorie product, which does not contain vitamins, fiber and minerals.
Scientists have been able to detect cells in the human brain that are responsible for controlling appetite and can cause a false sense of hunger. If you eat foods high in sugar, then free radicals begin to interfere with the usual, normal operation of neurons, which leads to a feeling of false hunger, and this usually results in overeating and severe obesity.
There is another reason that can cause a feeling of false hunger: when a sharp increase in glucose occurs in the body, and after the same sharp decline occurs, the brain requires immediate replenishment of glucose deficiency in the blood. Excessive sugar intake usually leads to a rapid increase in insulin and glucose in the body, and this leads to a false sense of hunger and overeating.
Excessive consumption of sugar can lead to the fact that the skin will start to appear wrinkles ahead of time, as sugar is deposited in reserve in the collagen of the skin, thereby reducing its elasticity. The second reason why sugar contributes to aging is that sugar can attract and retain free radicals that kill our bodies from the inside.
As shown by experiments conducted on rats, sugar causes a rather strong dependence. This data is also valid for people. When this product is consumed, the same changes occur in the human brain as with morphine, cocaine and nicotine.
All B vitamins (especially vitamin B1 - thiamine) are necessary for proper digestion and assimilation by the body of all foods containing sugar and starch. White sugar does not contain any B vitamins. For this reason, in order to absorb white sugar, the body removes B vitamins from muscles, liver, kidneys, nerves, stomach, heart, skin, eyes, blood, etc. It becomes clear that this can lead to the fact that in the human body, i.e. in many organs will begin a strong deficiency of vitamins of group B.
With excessive consumption of sugar, a large “capture” of B vitamins occurs in all organs and systems. This, in turn, can lead to excessive nervous excitability, severe indigestion, a feeling of constant fatigue, reduced quality of vision, anemia, muscle and skin diseases, heart attacks, and many other unpleasant consequences.
Now we can state with complete confidence that in 90% of cases such violations could have been avoided if sugar consumption was prohibited in time. When carbohydrates are consumed in their natural form,Vitamin B1 deficiency, as a rule, does not develop, for the reason that thiamine, which is necessary for the breakdown of starch or sugar, is in the consumed food. Thiamine is necessary not only for the growth of a good appetite, but also for the digestive processes to function properly.
Already a long time ago, an association of excess sugar (white) consumption with impaired cardiac (cardiac) activity has been established. White sugar is quite strong, and it has a particularly negative effect on the activity of the heart muscle. It can cause a severe lack of thiamine, which can lead to dystrophy of cardiac muscle tissue, and extravascular fluid accumulation can develop, which can eventually lead to cardiac arrest.
Many people believe that if they consume sugar in large quantities, they will have more energy, since sugar is essentially its main energy source. But if to tell you the truth, this is a wrong opinion for two reasons, let's talk about them.
First, sugar causes thiamine deficiency,therefore, the body can not finish the metabolism of carbohydrates, because of what the output of the energy produced does not work the way it could be with full digestion of food. This leads to the fact that a person has pronounced symptoms of fatigue and significantly reduced activity.
Secondly, an elevated level of sugar, as a rule, follows after a decrease in the level of sugar, which occurs as a result of a rapid increase in the level of insulin in the blood, which, in turn, is due to a sharp increase in the level of sugar. This vicious circle leads to the fact that in the body there is a lowering of the sugar level far below the normal limit. This phenomenon is called an attack of hypoglycemia, which is accompanied by the following symptoms: dizziness, apathy, fatigue, nausea, severe irritability and tremor of the limbs.
Sugar in its properties is a real stimulant. When the blood sugar level rises, a person feels a surge of activity, he develops a state of mild excitement, activates the activity of the sympathetic nervous system.For this reason, after drinking white sugar, we all notice that the heart rate noticeably increases, a slight rise in blood pressure occurs, breathing becomes more frequent, and the tone of the autonomic nervous system as a whole increases.
Due to changes in biochemistry, which is not accompanied by any excessive physical actions, the resulting energy does not dissipate for a long time. A person has a feeling of certain tension inside. That is why sugar is often called “stress food”.
Food sugar causes a change in the ratio of blood phosphorus and calcium, most often increases the level of calcium, while reducing the level of phosphorus. The ratio between calcium and phosphorus continues to be abnormal for more than 48 hours, after sugar has been consumed.
Due to the fact that the ratio of calcium to phosphorus is severely disturbed, the body cannot fully absorb calcium from food. The best interaction of calcium with phosphorus occurs in a ratio of 2.5: 1, and if these ratios are violated, and calcium is noticeably more, then additional calcium will simply not be used and absorbed by the body.
Excess calcium will be produced along with urine, or it may form rather dense deposits in any soft tissues. Thus, the intake of calcium may be quite sufficient, but if calcium comes along with sugar, it will be useless. That is why I want to warn everyone that calcium in sweetened milk is not absorbed into the body as it should, and this in turn increases the risk of developing a disease like rickets, as well as other diseases associated with calcium deficiency.
In order for the metabolism and oxidation of sugar to pass correctly, the presence of calcium in the body is indispensable, and due to the fact that there are no minerals in sugar, calcium begins to be borrowed directly from the bones. The cause of the development of such diseases as osteoporosis, as well as diseases of the teeth and weakening of the bones is, of course, a lack of calcium in the body. A disease such as rickets may be partly due to the inadequate consumption of white sugar.
The more sugar in our blood, the weaker the immune system.Why is diabetes is dangerous precisely by complications? Because the truth is sugar. In diabetes, the body cannot absorb sugar, and it gradually accumulates in the body. And the more it becomes in the blood, the less we have to hope for the immune system.
To avoid problems with your health, it is best to eliminate sugar from the diet to the maximum. But to remove sugar from the diet at 100% does not work, but actually it is not necessary, since natural sugar in small doses is necessary for the human body for normal functioning. But the consumption of refined sugar is best to exclude from the diet by 99%. It is also best not to use various sweets, condensed milk, cakes, jams at all - to put it simply, all products that have a high content of concentrated refined sugar.
You can stop drinking tea with sugar and completely eliminate from the diet chocolate, including bitter (although bitter chocolate does minimal damage).
Can you eat 16 cubes of refined sugar at a time? And drink half a liter of coca-cola? That is exactly the amount of dissolved sugar equivalent in 500 milliliters of this drink.
A standard jar of Coca-Cola (0.5 liters) contains exactly 16 cubes.Sahara.
