Stingersuit hides over indulgence

Posted by

So, we’ve all come through the “silly season”, waded our way through endless feasts, drank our share of Christmas cheer, and were elated when Santa arrived with our new super funky stinger suit. It’ now time to try on that present, GULP, maybe I overindulged? Good news though…it hides cellulite and those extra bumps!

Don’t panic, you’re not alone in the extra weight department and there is something you can do to dramatically improve the situation… reduce your sugar intake! Easy to say, harder to do!

With so much “hidden” sugar in our food today, we are consuming far too much. Do you know that in 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce (ketchup) there is 1 teaspoon of sugar? The World Health Organization has decided it’s so bad, they have cut their recommended daily intake for free sugars (that which is added to food, plus honey, syrups, fruit juices) to 25 grams or 6 teaspoons per day. Mental picture, 1 tub of yogurt contains about that much!

To show you how far off the charts we’ve strayed I’ve compiled a list of countries and their average daily sugar intake in teaspoons; USA 31.6, Germany 25.7, Australia 23.9, France 17.1, Thailand 7.3, India 1.2. Seems like we need to hit the curries a little harder!

Sugar is in almost everything and is listed under a variety of names used to disguise and confuse the consumer (beet, brown, cane, confectioners, high fructose, corn, malt, raw, refiners, rice). A good rule of thumb is, if it ends in “-ose” (glucose, sucrose, fructose, so on) it’s sugar!

Another helpful suggestion when trying to buy good healthy food is if you can’t read a word on the ingredients list, or know what it means, put it back!

According to the American Heart Association the best way to cut sugars out of the diet is to limit processed foods as much as possible.

An article by Locke Hughes in “Greatlist” says that sugar has been shown to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, and cardiovascular disease and cutting back on sugar may lead to lots of benefits for your body, including lower blood pressure, reduced risk of cancer, a sharper brain, clearer skin, and fewer cravings.

As an added bonus, while you are working on cutting the extra weight, wherever you go this year you’ll still look ultra-dynamite in that new Exotic Waterwear stinger suit Santa brought!
