Diets & Nutrition

Chocolate, cakes, sweet drinks and other sweets are at our hand at all times and therefore their consumption in moderation is becomes increasingly problematic. It is true that the complete exclusion of sugars from the diet is not the healthiest and most convenient way to keep you slim, but the fact that calorie intake from sweets is quickly transformed into fat must be taken into account. This is a big problem for weight loss

It is therefore recommended that these calories are brought by foods that are high in nutrients, phytochemical substances, fibers and vitamins vital for a state of good health. Theoretically a limited amount of sweets is suggested in your diet everyday, a quite confusing possibility.

Basically nutritionists recommend that sugars do not exceed 10% of daily caloric intake, but this ratio does not include milk or fruit sugars, but sugars added by sugar, honey or fructose. Also the amount of sugar added varies from person to person depending on the caloric needs of each individual.

Sedentary adults and those who are trying to lose excess weight should limit the amount of sugar added to 1.5-1.7 ounces per day, which corresponds to an energy intake of 160-180 kcal / day. Fresh and dried fruit but are of course the most healthy sugar source at hand, but there is still minimal and permissiveness to another kind of sweet that can be consumed without guilt. Here are some examples:
