HARMFUL FOODS TO AVOID 002(SUGAR)

Sugar is not a food but a poisonous chemical drug that is possibly as harmful as drugs especially the quantities consumed today.Dr. David Reuben ,author of "Every thing you always wanted to know about nutrition"says that white sugar is a pure chemical extracted from plant sources which actually acts as a thief because it drains your body of precious nutrients.Sugar suppresses the body's only defense against disease -the immune system,causes fermentation and clouds the brain.

Replace refined sugars with moderate amounts of dried fruits ,natural honey,or molasses
But remember,the free use of any sugar or even natural sweeteners tends to clog .the system and is frequently a cause of disease.It is no surprise that consuming too much sugar can make you gain weight. Extra sugar your body does not immediately require for energy can easily be converted to triglycerides, a type of fat that can then be stored around your waist as well as in your hips and thighs. Sugary beverages, such as soft drinks and fruit-flavored punches, are the worst offenders because their liquid calories do not affect satiety and can even make you crave more.
If you don't want to become obese in the immediate future, limit your sugar. you can get a good replacement for sugar from this link.     http://bit.ly/M05g3t
