Maybe you misunderstood. What i mean by sugar is the sugar found in candy, sweets, chocolate, etc.. NOT the natural sugars found in fruits / vegetables.
so sugar in candy isnt really sugar?
monosaccharides---=glucose, fructose, galactose
oligosaccharides --longer chains(2-10 carbons long)
so "candy" gives sugar/carbs that are the DEVIL and super unhealthy?
why is that? and what exactlyis wrong with candy? you mean cause SOME candy is just empty calories and "natural" sugar(which is the same thing) has vitamins/minerals?
like a jolly rancher vs handful of grapes?
so its not the SUGAR that is the issue, but empty calories(no nutrition content)
or is the sugar somehow different?
please let me know.
