Experience Dynamite Weight Loss Results Without Giving Up Your Favorites

In an attempt to eat healthier and lose weight many people have given up there sweet tooth...

Perhaps you're one of the many who have adopted a diet void of all the things you love...Cookies, cake, pudding and all other favorite foods all for the sake of dropping a few pounds.

But is all of this completely necessary?

Do you really have to suffer through a "boring diet" to shed that extra weight?

You will be happy to know that the answer is no. The problem with the sweets we eat is not the sugar in them unless the sugar is refined.

Walk into any grocery store and the shelves are lined with processed foods, most of which contain sugar in its refined form. Read any food label and you're likely to find ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, another name for refined sugar. Heck, it's even found in items that you would never expect...Items such as Whole wheat bread, salad dressing, canned fruit and many others.

But what is it about refined sugar that is contributing to those extra pounds?

The answer lies in the way it affects your metabolism.

Your body runs off of energy from the food you eat. Every time your heart beats, you blink an eye or take a step your body uses energy. Your body obtains that energy from the food you eat through a process called metabolism. Simply defined, metabolism is the process of breaking down food into energy to be used to carry out body processes.

Forgive me for being scientific, but do you remember your high school chemistry class? What happens when you burn something? A series of chemical reactions takes place. It's no different with your body. When food is broken down by your body (metabolized) a serious of chemical reactions occurs. If the food you eat is in its natural state the reactions are positive. However, if the food you eat is not in its natural state (refined) the reactions are not positive.

So what does refined sugar have to do with all of this?

Refined sugar is not in its natural state. Therefore, the chemical reactions that occur when refined sugar is being broken down by your body are not positive. In fact, the process of breaking down refined sugar produces poisons! These poisons move throughout your body and have an extremely negative impact on your metabolism. Over time, the continuous consumption of refined sugar creates an extremely inefficient metabolism making it harder for your body to convert the food you eat into energy.

What's the solution?

If you are looking to shed some extra pounds, the elimination of refined sugar will work wonders. Purchase desserts that have organic, non-altered sugar. This is not a license to over-indulge yourself, but there is no need to suffer through a boring diet.
