‘How I saved someone’s life’
Ok not literally!
But basically it was a picture of a can…
A can which looks healthy and nutritious
Jammed with protein and vitamins
But in reality was loaded with spoonful’s of the sugary with stuff!
And I don’t blame the guy we train one bit for falling for this
As most people do, and I’m sure you have? (I know I have!)
The protein shakes with the sugar content of McDonalds Milkshake?
The organic health bars which are as sugary as a bakewell tart?
The problem here is you can EASILY…
Consume a large amount of your daily sugar intake in one innocent thing
Unless you’re involved in endurance sport where sugar intake is higher so glycogen which fuels you can be restored…
Then I recommend not taking sugar this way
Whether that’s for goals related to dropping body fat or gaining strength
So shouldn’t you have any sugar?
No you should but there’s an IMPORTANT thing…
These should come from whole foods with good nutritional values
(i.e. they’re rich in other things like vitamins and antioxidants)
Things like berries, nuts and complex grains like oats
This way the sugar content isn’t excess like the above example
Plus you take in additional key nutrients to support your body from things like illness
Don’t take the labels word for it…
If sugar (grams) is in double figures, bin it
Instead consume sugars from natural whole foods (not manufactured foods)
