Some general information about sugar:
If you are trying to avoid sugar, you need to be adept at reading labels because it is in virtually EVERYTHING. Here are just a few examples (and I'm sure most are no surprise)
Too much sugar?
Simple carbohydrates provide a rapid rise of blood sugar levels upon ingestion as they absorb into the bloodstream very quickly. As a result of this, the pancreas creates too much insulin which makes your blood sugar drop far too low and gives you the feeling of being hungry (the pancreas produces insulin in response to high sugar intake to decrease your blood sugar). If you continually eat large amounts of refined sugar on a regular basis the muscle cells will begin to resist taking in more sugar which will equate to weight gain because the cells have had their fill. That overfill becomes your weight gain.
