Good Sugar Bad Sugar: How To Power Your Body and Brain with Healthy Energy by Christopher Vasey, N.D. has written an easy to follow guide to replacing bad sugars in your diet with good sugars for overall health.
One of the most valuable nutritive substances we can consume, sugar supplies the essential energy the body and brain need to function. But there are good and bad, healthful and harmful forms of sugar. Good sugars are those found naturally occurring in foods such as fruits, honey, maple syrup, and whole grains. These unrefined sugars not only provide energy but also trace elements, minerals, and vitamins – nutrients crucial to helping the body process sugar. Baad sugars are those that are man-made or refined, such as white sugar, white flour, and artificial sweeteners. Pervasive in the modern diet, bad sugars are difficult for the body to metabolize and lead to a host of health issues, including tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, brain fog, mood swings, and weight gain.
