As previous research has shown, check the Nutrition Facts labels of products to make the purchase prevents overweight. However, it does not obsessed with the recommended daily caloric intake, as it depends on weight and how active is one physically. Provision should also distinguish between fats and sugars, since these latter are half not so caloric and harmful to health.I
In this sense, a new study has removed the sugar myths claiming that moderate consumption is very healthy and can not be the "scapegoat" of the epidemic of obesity and diabetes that we suffer today. The work, coordinated by Drs Carmen Gómez Candela and Samara Palma, both from the Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics at the University Hospital La Paz, has been collected in the "White Paper Sugar", a publication which is now available in electronic format .
Sugar has a very bad reputation to be considered a high-calorie food and banned in most weight loss diets. Dr. Gómez Candela, however, claims that sugar behaves like any other carbohydrate providing four calories per gram and that there is no scientific evidence linking its consumption with the development of obesity. In his view, it really is related to obesity is a positive energy balance, ie, with an energy intake exceeds the body's requirements, which is relatively common for the lack of physical exercise. In short, sugar is by no means the sole cause excess heat.
According to the study's authors, this food blame the accumulation of fat in the body and delete it completely from the diet while maintaining a sedentary lifestyle and bad practices only serve to worsen our health.
