Refined carbs

A few thoughts on Refined Carbohydrates. The topic deserves more coverage and I will do that on my health blog. In the meantime, please do go have a read.

The Art of Health

Pretty enough to pose before…but are these healthy enough to eat as well?

Sugar and refined carbs (which also turns into glucose) attach to proteins in our body, producing toxins known as AGEs. And as the name suggests, they accelerate the ageing process! Science has learned how to sound catchy too! 😀

Beyond that, sugars contribute to inflammation, insulin resistance, and oxidative stress which further lead to Lifestyle Diseases. Refined carbs have a high glycemic index which is linked to inflammation in the body. All of these factors also make us age faster. This includes our skin, organs, and DNA.

What I am trying to say is, one doughnut is not equal to an hour on the treadmill!

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
