Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads on the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

Getting Off the Roller Coaster

Last month we talked about the roller coaster of sugar in our diet—how and why it affects us as it does, and how to stop the cravings. It’s one thing to cut out the obvious culprits like candy bars, soda, sweet treats, etc. Identifying hidden sugar, however, is a more difficult.

The American Heart Association suggests women get no more than 100 calories of sugar (about 6 teaspoons) each day, and men no more than 150 calories (9 teaspoons). With approximately 4 grams of processed sugar in a teaspoon, that’s 24 grams of sugar for women (36 grams for men).

So where are those grams hiding? In plain sight! Here are items in your kitchen you might not expect to contain added sugar. Hint: always check nutrition labels and serving size.

Condiments, sauces, salad dressing: Lots of sugar in these; ketchup and BBQ sauce are two of the worst culprits. Just 2 tablespoons can pack a wallop. For dressing, choose balsamic vinaigrette; for ketchup/BBQ sauce, substitute regular yellow mustard. Or choose a condiment with the lowest sugar content.

Yogurt: Even low-fat flavored yogurt can have more grams of sugar in one serving than a full day’s allowance. Go for plain, organic Greek style and add fresh fruit, or a touch of a natural sweetener like Stevia. Note: When you choose low-fat products, sugar is added to replace the fat, so it’s best to select full-fat and watch portion size.

Granola bars: Many contain corn syrup, brown sugar, chocolate, peanut butter, etc. How about an apple, banana, or homemade smoothie instead?

Instant oatmeal: It may have lots of healthy fiber, but sugar is often hiding in the flavored kind. Try reduced sugar varieties, or simply add apple slices and a pinch of cinnamon to plain oatmeal.

Breakfast cereals: Even those hyped as healthy (oat, bran, high fiber) or “less sugar than…” can still have 10-20 grams of added sugar. Stay away from sugary choices (even for the kids), and go for yogurt, oatmeal, or cereals low in added sugar and high in fiber and protein.

Energy drinks: That “boost” comes from caffeine and sugar—lots of it (up to 25 grams in an 8oz. serving!). Plain or sparkling water is best.

Canned and dried fruit: Even in “light” syrup, there can be more grams in one cup than the daily allowance. And a small box of raisins? 25 grams of sugar! Fresh is always best.

Vitamin water: May have added vitamins and minerals, but also a lot of added sugar. A regular bottle can have 32 grams of sugar! Go for a cold glass of water, and get your vitamins and minerals from fruits and veggies.

Agave: It might be found in health stores, but it’s just dressed up sugar. At almost 85% fructose, it’s much harder for your body to metabolize. Skip it.

Frozen yogurt: Fresh fruit piled on top doesn’t cancel out the sugar. Just consider it dessert and enjoy it.

Smoothies: Commercial smoothies are high in calories and loaded with sugar (masquerading as fruit juice concentrate). Make your own with fresh ingredients. Get creative!

Breads and muffins: White bread is full of sugar. Even multi-grain and wheat breads can have extra (up to 16 grams per slice!). Always check the nutrition label.

Sugar by any other name…is still sugar:
There’s no need to avoid natural sugars (found in fruit, vegetables, and dairy which also contain fiber and nutrients). It’s the sugar in processed foods that causes problems. Here are some names for processed sugar you might not have considered:
• Glucose (can be metabolized by nearly every cell in the body)
• Fructose (is metabolized almost entirely in the liver). AVOID high fructose sugars
• Sucrose – most common, called table sugar (found naturally in fruits and plants), consists of 50/50 glucose and fructose
• High Fructose Corn Syrup - produced from corn starch. Avoid this as well.

A few sugars primarily of glucose (pure or combined with sugars other than fructose):
Barley malt, Brown rice syrup, Corn syrup, Dextrin/Dextrose, Lactose, Malt syrup

Sugars with both glucose and fructose:
Beet sugar, Blackstrap molasses, Brown sugar, Cane sugar, Caramel, Carob syrup, Confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar), Fruit juice concentrate, Maple syrup, Raw sugar

The healthiest diet will contain more whole and unprocessed food, and less processed (packaged) foods. Make it a habit to shop the outside walls of the grocery store (produce, meats, dairy) and spend as little time as possible in the aisles. It will make for a healthy mind, body, and spirit!
