I have been going back and forth for a long time, weight fluctuating up and down for months. Today I’m beginning to watch and cut out sugars. I have been reading and it all comes down to sugars in your body that is determining weight gain or loss.
Carbs do play a role in this as they are converted into sugar, if not simple carbs and used up as a source of energy. Carbs area necessary part of your diet and needed just as much as lean protein in muscle growth, they just have a different job in helping your body. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are:
- Men:150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons).
- Women:100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons).
In short not to add to the already flooded internet posts I’m cutting back starting today in hopes to lose a little of my belly fat by the beginning of Jan. if anyone would like to join me in this, support with information or simply follow my process please do. I have found much better success when you have people to help hold you accountable and want the same goals as you.
