As the obesity and diabetes epidemics continue to soar, the blame for our expanding waistlines and declining health is frequently pinned on sugar. The problem is that when people think of “sugar,” they think of the added sugar in foods that are associated with weight gain, such as soda, cake, and candy. However, there are many different types of sugars – both naturally occurring sugars in fruit and vegetables, and added sugars in processed foods. Most people don’t really need to consume any added sugar; the natural sugars in fruits, vegetables and dairy products are sufficient. InsideTracker can tell you if your blood glucose levels are healthy, so you can adjust your sugar intake accordingly.
