Are there benefits to cutting added sugar?
« on: October 11, 2018, 08:56:06 am »
Out of a whim,I decided to cut sugar from my life. Whether that sugar is from sweets or drinks it's off for good.
So my questions are the following:
Are there any benefits,apart from losing weight,in cutting sugar off your diet?
Is there some special benefit for people who are hiv positive?
Note:added sugar,fruits are ok.

Suger ... what got you thinking specifically about suger if I can ask?

A healthier diet and part of that I feel is lowering  suger intake is a reduction for other health issues, some of them the population living with HIV are more prone to developing as we age like diabetes type 2 as simple example.

Diabetes Is on the Rise https://www.poz.com/article/diabetes-rise

https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv-aids/fact-sheets/22/59/hiv-and-diabetes

Living healthier regardless of HIV status is something people should at think more about.

So cutting sugar sure, but also quitting bad habits such as smoking, boozing, eating badly, exercise, better sleep  will all help keep you healthier and is also going to help you prevent to a degree concerns from happing sooner in life

Well.... I had some sweatpants that my brother gave me,but,my butt seems to say no to them haha.
Also,I want to try and be more active this year,gonna start a bit of cycling as well,gonna try to eat better (as Mich as I can 😅) and try to keep balance.
Good thing is I don't smoke,or drink either. But I guess sugar will be a challenge I want to take.
Birthday is coming in 6 days,so I'm.thinking of saying no to the cake haha.
Thanks for the extra info as Well:)
