We consume an enormous amount of sugar, whether consciously or not, but it's a largely misunderstood substance. There are different kinds and different ways your body processes them all. Some consider it poison and others believe it's the sweetest thing on earth. Here's a look at the different forms of sugar, the various ways they affect you, and how they play a role in healthy—and unhealthy—diets. [Lifehacker]
That was a bery informative article for me, I'm glad I clicked on it. I've been worried about my consumption of sugar because until recently I'd reached a point where I ate dessert after each meal, plus at breakfast and with the afternoon coffee. Then I tried a very effective (to me anyway) way to cut it down: I started eating dessert only at breakfast. Being told that breakfast food is the easiest to burn throughout the day helped with my motivation. It's been 5 months and I feel very good about this decision. I also lost about 2.5-3 kg (5-6 pounds).
