I have two good friends and each of them have children of the same age (2.5). One mother gives different sweets to her child when she (a child) wants. A baby-girl does not suffer from any problems with teeth or some other terrible consequences of eating a lot of sweets. And the baby girl who grows in the other family does not know yet about the fact of existing of sweets, candies and chocolates. She develops normally, her mother does not worry about her teeth or some allergic reactions at all. They both are happy. So everything is individual and depends on each person exactly
Everything can be useful when it is limited. And of course, everything is much more useful when it is natural. When you buy candies in the supermarket, you don't know what they consist of and they probably contain a lot of synthetic elements which are used to improve their color and taste, but which are really harmful for the whole organism. So if you want some sugar, find natural sources of it - honey, dried fruit. Chocolate is also allowed, especially dark one, but rarely, because chocolate is also a synthetic products and it contains many calories and extra sugar, so abusing it is dangerous.
But there is a way out for you, there are lots of low-calory desserts which can be even useful for health. For example, fruit jelly (of course, not that one which is sold in supermarkets, see my previous post. A fruit jelly should be homemade). Fruit jelly is that kind of dessert which is allowed even for those people who suffer from diabetes, because it does not contain any sugar - only fruit juice. You can experiment with tastes of it, changing the juice or adding small pieces of fruit. It is a very easy-cooked dessert which can be either everyday or holiday. And it is harmless for your figure because as I said above, it is a low-calory dessert.
One more healthy dessert for you is marmalade. It may sound strange, but this delicacy has a lot of benefits for our health and few calories. It can be made of different fruit, but my favourite one is orange marmalade. Orange marmalade does not add many calories to toast, baked goods or other recipes. Each 1-tbsp. serving of this fruit preserve contains 49 calories. The amount of calories in marmalade account for 2.4 percent of the maximum allowable daily calories if your diet plan includes 2,000 calories. A common consumption of orange marmalade includes spreading it on a slice of toast as part of a healthy breakfast, which adds 69 calories to your total intake. Columbia University’s Health Service suggests eating 350 to 500 calories when you wake up in the morning to prepare your body properly for the coming day, so you should consume much more than one serving of orange marmalade spread on toast for a nutritious breakfast. It does, however, make a good option for a between-meal snack. Registered dietitian Michele Turcotte of The Diet Channel recommends 100- to 200-calorie snacks.
You need to stop eating sweets if you take care about the relations and your health! Like certain drugs, sugar causes a euphoric effect triggered by the massive release of dopamine, the chemical that controls pleasure in your brain. Sugar is used similarly to caffeine as a way to keep you awake during the day. However, sugar only offers short-term satisfaction and almost always results in a sugar crash later. Sugar releases endorphins that can help relieve stress or anxiety, but only for a short period of time. Opt for a more sustainable way to manage your stress.Try exercising, picking up a hobby, listening to music, or doing any other positive activity when you feel the urge to eat sugar to ease stress. So, these are some tips that I have found for you!
Good night, guys, how are you? Very interesting topic. I wonder where this is said or written, that sweets can be useful and not harm the human body !? And I'm most interested in, can you really part with your partner just because hi limits your consumption of sweets, taking care of your health? !! All this is very strange. Everyone knows that nothing but dying teeth, diabetes, allergies, and several other diseases from sweets will not have to wait. So think well and make the right choice, man!
I think that you may find cookies, cupcakes and candy hard to resist, but your health depends on doing just that. Although most nutrition experts recommend limiting sweets and candy, about 35 percent of the calories Americans consume are empty calories -- foods that have a significant number of calories without significant nutrients -- that come from things like desserts, soda and candy. Eating more sweets and candy not only leaves less room for more nutritious choices like lean protein and vegetables, but it also sets you up for weight gain and chronic health problems.Sweets and candy generally contribute nothing more than extra calories and saturated fat to your diet.
