This “Stealth Food” is Wrecking Your Heart
It’s a lie that many “healthy” people tell themselves… including some of my own patients.
As long as you’re in shape… and not overweight… you can basically eat whatever you want.
Just burn off the calories, and everything is fine, right?
Not exactly – in fact, not at all.
Because a new study shows that one common food could be quietly destroying your heart and liver, even if you’re otherwise healthy.
And by the time you or your doctor notice the damage, it may already be too late.
You don’t need to be overweight… or diabetic… for sugar to kill you.
Researchers recently compared two groups of people – one with high levels of fat in their livers (typically associated with obesity) and one with very low levels, who were in pretty good health.
Both groups ate either a high-sugar or low-sugar diet for 12 weeks.
And here’s where things get interesting.
As expected, the folks with fatty livers who ate a lot of sugar started experiencing metabolic changes that increased their risk for cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke.
But here’s the thing – the people who were supposedly “healthy” and had low fat in their livers experienced the SAME EXACT CHANGES!
Sugar didn’t care if you were healthy or not – or overweight or not.
It damages your liver and your heart just the same.
And lots of these folks who think they’re healthy would have NO IDEA that they’re at an increased risk of heart disease.
So, just how much sugar was in this high-sugar group? A whopping 650 calories per day.
If you’re thinking you would never even come close to eating that much sugar a day, consider this: A 12-oz coke is 150 calories, one medium donut is 200 calories, and 1 cup of ice cream is about 300 calories.
That’s 650 right there. And that doesn’t even count all the sugar that’s packed into all the processed food we eat every day.
If you’ve haven’t started cutting back on sugar, today is the day to do it.
Both your liver and your heart will thank you for it.
To a brighter day,
