This topic may be a little days late to talk about, but did you know that March 10 is “Sugar ‘Satou’ Day?”
In Japanese, 3 is “san” and 10 is “tou.”
Recently, diets and sugar-free lifestyles are increasing, and people avoid eating sweet things.
I myself have started training and have been avoiding sugar.
However, sugar-free diets and training may make you ill, impairing your health, and your diet will be a total loss.
Sugar may remind you of “sweet” and “makes you gain weight.” Besides the sugar we put in our tea and coffee, sugar is necessary for juice, coke, can coffee, chocolate, snacks such as cookies, ice cream, seasonings, ketchup, sauces, and dressings.
Taking too much sugar can be a hazard, but it is a vital energy source for our bodies.
If sugar levels lower, our bodies will break down our muscles and create its own sugar substances.
Therefore, muscle mass will decrease and lower your metabolism rate.
Sugar has the nature of changing into glucose quickly once in our bodies.
Carbohydrates such as rice, bread, and noodles, also change into glucose. However, sugar is more easily taken into our bodies, so you can efficiently gain energy.
These days, I often see a professional wrestler who loves sweet food reporting the food he eats on TV.
Professional wrestlers and sumo wrestlers who need the energy, need sweet things to build their bodies and create power.
I hear stories about young girls who are taken to the hospital for going on extreme diets.
I understand why they would go on diets, but they should avoid not taking sugar.
Zero-sugar lifestyles are difficult in this world, but it is good to change to natural sugars like “beet sugar,” “sugar cane,” and “brown sugar.”
Research has shown that consuming large amounts of sugar can extend the curing process of diseases such as cancer. Moreover, there is not so much scientific research to prove this, but it is what we eat, so we should stay away from chemical seasoning as much as possible.
