Probably not, but the processed foods you buy nearly all do have sugar in them.
According to a 2014 study on JAMA Internal Medicine 10 percent of Americans consume 25 percent or more of their daily calories in the form of added sugars.
And a whopping 71.4% of the U.S. adults consume at least 10 percent of their daily calories from added sugar.
So how much sugar do you eat?
That is a hard question to answer because sugar is in products you would never guess.
Take for example a fruit flavored yogurt. It can contain about 5 teaspoons per serving, and one package of sweet and sour chicken with rice contains more sugar than a can of soda.
Sugar can also hide under less familiar names such as sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, rice syrup, barley malt, dextrose, maltose, galactose and maltodextrin, just to name a few.
In fact, there are at least 61 different names for sugar listed on food labels.
And while those labels list the total sugar content, the processed food industry is not required to tell you if that total contains any added sugar.
So this makes it difficult, if not impossible to know how much added sugar you are consuming.
This becomes a problem for you because as sugar consumption has increased with the introduction of processed foods and drinks, obesity and diabetes rates have gone through the roof.
Now, for the first time ever, obese adults now outnumber people who are underweight. Plus, nearly 50% of the U.S. adult population have either full blown diabetes or are prediabetes.
The sad truth is diabetes rates have increased 900 percent since the early 1960s, and it’s now affecting people at an increasingly younger age.
Statistics show that type 2 diabetes used to be a rare disease that hit the middle-aged and elderly.
Another shocking fact is that diabetes rates started to spike around the 1925 and have risen from then to now 9,000%!
You can change all that very easily because high added sugar content is almost related to the processed food industry.
So if you cook from scratch with organic non-processed whole foods then you don’t have the added sugar content.
That is unless you put processed sauces or dressings on meats or vegetables.
But don’t despair…
Follow a diet that is very low carb, limited protein and lots of healthy saturated fats.
Studies are showing that a very low carb, limited protein and high fat diet may help with type 2 diabetes.
So what is the low carb, limited protein and high fat diet to go on?
