10 Common Foods That Are Completely Messing with Your Metabolism

Sugar

You already know that sugar is bad (some experts want it regulated like drug), but you might not realize that it’s also highly inflammatory, and the body doesn’t process it well. “The World Health Organization and American Heart Association recommends 25-36 grams of sugar per day; currently, most of us are consuming at least 48 teaspoons,” says Courtney Daylong, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and founder of Totally Fit Mama. So how do we fix this? “To satisfy that sugar craving, reach for real fruit.” Yes, it still contains sugar, she says, but it’s not concentrated like it is in processed foods. “You will be getting the fiber (which is a big metabolism helper to detoxify the body and get things ‘moving’), along with being antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all things processed sugar lacks.”
