A new book had come out called the Sugar Busters! It talks about cutting sugar from your diet. It also claims that sugar is toxic. This is true if you are talking about white refined sugar, not natural sugar.
According to the information I have found, the authors of this diet are suggesting a person should eliminate all sweets made with white refined sugar and certain fruits and vegetables with high sugar content.
This diet is supposed to also help lower a person’s cholesterol, achieve wellness, increased energy and help treat diabetes and other diseases.
What the diet says should be eliminated is the following:
Potatoes, corn, white rice, bread (from refined flour), beets, carrots, refined sugar, corn syrup, molasses, honey, sugared colas and beer.
What is allowed is listed below:
Lean beef and pork
Canadian bacon poultry, game meats such as venison (deer meat), fish and shellfish, beans, lentils, peas, spinach, lettuce, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, asparagus, artichokes, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, eggplant, onions, apples, lemons, limes, pears, cherries, raspberries, kiwis, grapefruits, apricots, melons and watermelons, tomatoes, tangerines and oranges.
You can have dairy products, whole grains and cereals—just do not add sugar to them for they already have sugar added.
It is being said this will help people lose weight by cutting out the “sugar busters” which is true, but it doesn’t help you become fit and you still need to have exercise to achieve a healthy body.
Keep in mind as with any new diet out there, it may work for some, others it may not.
You have to know your own body: medical conditions, prescriptions, etc when trying a new diet.
I myself have cut out white refined sugar for I suffer from Candida which rears its ugly head from time to time. I did not have Candida until after my hysterectomy.
But I have learned what I can eat and not eat to keep control of this particular infection. If I choose to indulge in one of the avoid food list, I know I will pay for it by the symptoms returning.
Basically as with anything, not all diets are going to affect each person the same. Our bodies are different and often times there are other factors that need to be taken into account and with these new diets on the market, they don’t always include the what ifs.
As always before choosing to implement a new diet or fitness regimen, please check with your healthcare provider first.
