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.
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!
