It’s somewhat human to visit the low-brow end of the food spectrum once in a while ... sweets, desserts, candy, gorpy goop, empty caloried junk.
That said, you can condition your palette otherwise. Health and muscle building are all about getting the right kind of sugar; that’s where energy (glucose) comes from having morphed in our digestive system - after fats, proteins and carbohydrates - then into usable blood sugar. But not any sweet thing will do. The more refined, processed and profitable the sweetener is, the more DANGEROUS it is. The purest, least processed, closest-to-nature options are best and far less risky.
Headed up by Dr. Frank Hu, a study by the Harvard School of Public Health and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports a single 12-ounce can of soda provides the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of table sugar. Nearly ONE THIRD of all carbohydrate calories in the American diet come from added sweeteners, and beverages account for about half! The incumbent phosphoric acid makes sodas of all kinds 10,000-50,000 times more acidic than normal pH tap water! A double whammy.
