Sugar Stacks: How Does Your Day Stack Up?

I don’t have to tell you not to guzzle soft drinks or even juices by the litre if fat loss is a goal, do I? After all, we all know by now that sugar is the key ingredient to avoid if health and fat loss are on your agenda for this year. The problem with the sweet stuff, of course, is that it can be kinda sneaky. Hidden away. Sometimes even pretending to be something all-natural or good for you.

This is why I completely love Sugar Stacks – it keeps me honest and gets me thinking about making smarter choices even within the realms of my already healthy eating plan.

all fruits are not created equal

For example – if you’re not in the first 14 days of your fat loss plan, a little fruit is definitely fine and can be an important way to increase nutrient intake as well as help you to enjoy some variety. But if you think that one piece of fruit is just as good or bad as the next you’d be mistaken.

Exhibit A:  Strawberries

Exhibit B: Apple

sneaky sugary snacks

Another snack commonly confused for a health food is low-fat yoghurt. Check this out!

As the folk at Sugar Stacks so aptly say:

NOTE: We are here showing the total sugar content of fruit. We are using the sugar cubes to illustrate that. Fruit probably has other health benefits that outweigh the sugar content, and the fruit in sugar may (or may not) be healthier than table sugar. But all fruits are not equal in sugar content, and it’s worth noting that. A strawberry may, in fact, be healthier than a grape, even though they are both “natural.”

Interesting stuff, isn’t it? Would you change anything in your current eating plan after reading this post or checking out the Sugar Stacks site?
