Mile High Magazine 12/11/2022 Hidden Sugar

Guest:  Dr. Angela Tran, D.O. MedFit Nutrition & Obesity Expert Sugar is not the enemy, it is very important.  It provides glucose to our brain to function and gives us energy.  The problem is the amount we are consuming.  Sugar is the most addictive drug.  Too much sugar can cause a stroke, diabetes, heart disease.  Some healthy ways to hit that reward spot in the brain are exercise, getting enough sleep, and proper nutrition.  The recommend sugar for women is 6 teaspoons a day and for men 9.  That is only 25-30 grams and most Americans consume 75 grams a day.  Sugar also can damage the walls of the blood vessels and can cause high blood pressure and heart attacks.  Just because it says zero sugars, it does not mean it is health.  They contain artificial sweetener and they can spike insulin.  Always look at the fine print, balance you cabs with proteins and health fats, and do not drink your calories. denverweightlossclinic.com
