Energy Content of Sugars

If you want to lose weight, sugar is not an ideal food option for a healthy weight loss diet, as it has a high calorie-content. In general, calorie-controlled diets recommend a low intake of sugar. That said, while you can reduce calories by using sugar substitutes or non-nutritive sweeteners, these artificial sugars typically do not increase diet-compliance. In addition to energy content, dietary nutrition is also important, as a nutritious diet helps the body to burn calories faster and maintains a healthy metabolic rate. So as well as calorie-counting, check food labels for nutritional value. Nutritional and energy values provided on most of the above food pages include: vitamins, minerals, folate and dietary fiber, as well as protein and carbs. Understanding diet nutrition makes calorie control and weight management easier and helps you to follow a healthy eating plan. See also Nutrition in Sugar

How To Save Calories in Your Diet

Calorie reduction tip: If you are counting calories because you are on a weight loss diet plan, the best way to lower energy intake is to check food labels and choose foods with reduced sugar content. Also, add less sugar to your cereal and coffee. Also, remember that any energy-burning exercise helps to increase your calorie deficit and thus allows you to eat more sugar with less risk of developing a weight problem.
