You pick up a packaged product and begin to read the label.
You see that it contains 8 fat grams, 300 calories and 20 grams of sugar. Based on that information, you decide to eat the product, believing that the eight fat grams are all that you need to worry about.

You see that it contains 8 fat grams, 300 calories and 20 grams of sugar. Based on that information, you decide to eat the product, believing that the eight fat grams are all that you need to worry about.
That is what the manufacturers want you to believe.

What you don’t know is that the product contains eight fat grams only when it is sealed in its wrapper.
What happens when it goes into your body is a completely different story.

Guess what?
We only need so much sugar for energy.
When we eat products that contain sugar, the excess sugar has nowhere to go.
It will convert into FAT.
Therefore, a product that contains only eight fat grams in its wrapper, may convert into far more fat grams in your body.

Consider a piece of hard candy.
We are deceived into believing that because it contains little or no calories in the wrapper will make it non-fattening in our body.
Not so at all.
The sugar in the hard candy can only go one place.
It converts into fat storage in our system.
The joke’s on us—literally.

To compound the problem, we get tricked by the number of servings.
We glance at the label information, log the number of fat grams and calories and consume the product.
We forget to pay attention to the number of servings and multiply that number by the fat grams and calories.
If a product has five servings in a bag, it has five times the number of fat grams and calories listed on the label—BEFORE the conversion of the additional sugar.

We get slammed with a double-whammy and it sticks to us like a rubber tire.
We buy into the Big Fat Lie.

And here’s the real problem.
Processed sugar is everywhere.
The obvious sources such as candy and sweets represent only the tip of the iceberg.
Fast food chains put sugar in the French fries, then top them off with salt.
We become addicted and crave more and more.
Sauces, dressings, toppings of all types—all of them contain gobs of sugar.
We already know what happens to those gobs.

Perhaps the worse offenders are soft drinks.
Carbonated beverages contain ridiculous amounts of processed sugar, anywhere from 20 to as much as 45 grams per serving. If you drink them, you know what will happen because of the Big Fat Lie.
That’s right.
Expect the fat to accumulate.

To make matters worse, carbonation causes loss of bone density or osteoperosis.

The Big Fat Lie continues.
The chemicals in diet drinks have been linked to degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Not only that, diet drinks don’t satisfy your craving for sugar.

How many times have you seen someone order a diet drink with their banana split or mountain of chips and salsa (usually chock full of sugar as well)?
Too often to remember.
Without satisfying our craving, even when we drink a diet soft drink, we reach for alternate sugar sources, trapped in an endless fat producing cycle.

If we do not manage and reduce our processed sugar intake, we can develop hyperglycemia or excess glucose in the blood stream. Excess sugar will increase the risk of developing life-threatening conditions that range from heart disease and stroke, to blindness, nerve damage, depression and kidney disease.

Bottom-line—to become Young and Slim, processed sugar has to go.
It has no place if we want to regain our youth.
