Functions in the body

Sugar is a carbohydrate. Your brain need's sugar for fuel.

Over consumption of sugar can lead to weight gain, nutrient deficiencies, dental problems and diabetes.

Each gram of sugar contains 4 calories.

Moderation is key

Refined sugar Beware, you will find refined sugar in soft drink's, fruit juices, chocolate, cakes, biscuits, muffins, look out for it in pre prepared marinades, meals, and sauces.  Don't forget 4 Calories per gram! 

What to look for

Words ending in OSE, like Dextrose, Glucose, Lactose, Maltose, Saccharose, Sucrose, Xylose, are all sugar, look out for these ingredient's as they are often hidden in food and drinks.

Try to limit your consumption of sweets, one treat per week or better still per month will make that slice of cake or ice cream feel even more satisfying, replacing sugar in hot drinks with an artificial sweeter (Aspartame Free) will decrease your calorie intake.
