Windows 7: Unhealthy Sugar Intake?

Windows 10 Home Premium 64bit sp1

Well this is my little input hehee

My Doctor told me if you are very active and physical you can have a high sugar intake but mainly do to the metabolism and constant burning of it

If you are not being constantly active and burning on a daily basis too much sugar has reverse effects I in fact eat lots of sugars but there is also natural sugar you get from the food you eat so you kind of have to balance it out once in a while

Fore sure the culprits for quick and high sugar levels are Ice Cream and Hostess products little Debbie stuff like that can't eat that garbage every day but 2 twinkies a week will not kill you

I you have a sweet tooth it's time to incorporate some of that into natural sugar based foods that you can eat and kill the cravings Cranberries Raisins honey you can eat this in salads most of the time and it gives them a uplift you can use raspberry or strawberry vinaigrettes

bananas stuff that is natural sweet it will balance you out and it will not have the awesome effect of raw sugar

I keep this saved as it's very interesting - What happens in your body when you drink a can of Coca Cola:

<10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat.

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

>60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish.

You’ve also now, literally, urinated away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth. This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. But, hey, have another Coke, it’ll make you feel better.

I once worked with a man who at times would have 8-10 cokes a day. Not coincidentally I am sure, he also had some rather serious health issues.

I have between 8-10 cups of tea a day in a cup around double the size of the average cup, i take 5 sugars, are there any healthy substitutions i could use? also does anyone have any idea on how damaging this can be to my health?
Stevia is a natural product that is dried and then ground into powder, it has a slight aniseed taste and a very little is quite sweet and much better for one than the artificial sweetners you can buy.

I worked with a guy who used to drink about 2 litres of Coca Cola a day. He'd just bring the bottle in every morning and have that throughout the day. His Dentist eventually told him he needs to stop as his teeth were becoming a mess, so he stopped. Said it was horrible quitting, had serious withdrawal symptoms, but then started to feel much better. Said especially in the morning he would feel well, and not just tired and worn down.

Try cutting out sugar all togethetr (not just tea) and you'll soon learn whether you're addicted to sugar or not

Seriously though - cut back. Going to zero is not necessary however.
