If you follow our Facebook group you might have seen

‘How I saved someone’s life’

 

Ok not literally!

But basically it was a picture of a can…

 

More specifically…

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

 

Todays lesson?

 

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)

 

Speak shortly
