Sugar and weight loss – The Scoop

One of the lessons we are reminded of frequently as personal trainers is the drastic impact of food plans on overall fitness. Bodybuilders and fitness competitors will say things like “Abs are made in the kitchen” and “You can’t out train a poor diet”. Clients often ask how much harder they have to work to be able to keep a few “treats” in their food plans, usually sweet ones. There are trade offs in adding those “treats”, more than just burning the extra calories ingested, and this article highlights many of those relative to sugar intake. The article offers some insight on how sugar affects weight loss and also references the scientific and medical sources of these claims.
