What Happens To Your Body An Hour After Eating Sugar?

What happens to your body an hour after eating sugar? Humans are programmed to love sugar - this is what the substance does to our bodies Sugar is an important and popular part of our daily diet. Along with starch, it falls within the carbohydrate group as it consists of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms and acts as fuel for the body. In fact, carbohydrates are our main source of energy, converted by the body to power our cells and keep us alive and growing. However, many of us are overindulging in the white stuff, with the average adult consuming approximately 63 grams (2.2 ounces), nearly 16 teaspoons, of sugar each day. Thats over twice the recommended daily intake. The main attraction to sugar, for both humans and animals, is its sweet taste. In nature, this is a useful indication of which foods are safe to eat, as poisonous fruits and plants tend to be sour or bitter, but in the modern world of processed foods and fizzy drinks, sweetness is mainly associated with pleasure. As a result, sugar is added to many of the foods we consume each day to artificially boost the flavour or texture, or act as a preservative by hindering the growth of bacteria. This may be good news for our Continue reading >>

    If you're like me, at some point you heard someone (like Dr. Ernie Johnson or Dr. Gary Clark) say fizz-EE-at-rist instead of fizz-EYE-ut-rist/fizz-EYE-a-trist and wondered if somehow you were saying it wrong.
    The short answer is that you're not wrong. So, what's up with the alternative pronunciation.
    Let's start with the root of the problem: iatros (ἰατρός), the ancient Greek word for physician.
    The word is pronounced EE-at-ros. So, the people who say fizz-EE-at-rist or fizz-EE-at-ree (that just sounds wrong) are being more faithful to the ancient Greek root.
    So, are the rest of us wrong?
    If you were saying the word around 500 years ago (had the discipline been in existence), you would have actually pronounced it fizz-EE-at-rist. But around 500 years ago, the pronunciation of stressed vowels in English shifted - it's called the Great Vowell Shift... look it up, it's like, an actual thing!
    If you've taken any other Western European language, you'll see that they pronounce a, e, i, "ah," "ay," and "ee" respectively. English speakers don't anymore. Nobody tries to put food on the TAH-ble for instance when it's just as easy to put food on the TAY-ble.
    So, if you want to be consistent with the rest of modern English, say physiatry like you say psychiatry. It's the same ἰατρός root, and it's consistent with the way people say pod-EYE-uh-tree or EYE-at-ro-gen-ic.
    The reason people say syke-ee-AT-ric (psychiatric) and fizz-ee-AT-ric (physiatric) is because in those words, the stress is not on the i. If you want to be technical, it's on the penultate instead of the antipenultate syllable.
    So, to make a long story short, neither pronunciation is wrong, but fizz-EE-at-rist is probably more affected. If people who say it that way wanted to be consistent, they'd talk about, among other things,
    - HE-pertension
    - HIPPO-tension! (hypotension)
    - hippo-glee-SAY-mia (hypoglycemia)
    - Sick-ee-at-rists (psychiatrists)
    - BEceps and TREEceps muscles (biceps and triceps)
    But... I haven't yet met anyone who says that. So, let's relax about pronunciation and focus on being good phys-EYE-atrists.

  2. padresp

    Also, from http://www.physiatry.org/?page=history,
    "In 1946, the AMA Council on Physical Medicine voted to sponsor the term "physiatrist" (fizz-ee-at'-trist) and physiatry (fizz-ee-at'-tree) with the accent on the third syllable. This is how the pronunciation appears in most American dictionaries."

  3. Taus

    I have never met anyone except very old school academic rehab docs who pronounce it that way w the emphasis in "AT"
    You may have a shred of a chance of another physician, let alone laymen, knowing what you're talking about if you emphasize the "Eye"

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BODY WHEN YOU EAT TOO MUCH SUGAR? THE SIGNS THAT YOU’RE EATING TOO MUCH SUGAR!! Most people think only diabetics have high blood sugar levels. Yet this isn’t so. Any person can suffer from this and may not notice the harm being done to nerves, blood vessels, and organs.

Yet this isn’t so. Any person can suffer from this and may not notice the harm being done to nerves, blood vessels, and organs. • It overloads and damages your liver. • It tricks your body into gaining weight and affects your insulin and leptin signaling. • It causes metabolic dysfunction. • It increases your uric acid levels. • You lack energy If you’re always feeling tired or fatigued, that’s one of the primary signs that you’re consuming too much sugar. While sugary foods can give you an initial boost of energy, it’s only temporary, and the crash that follows is far worse than had you chosen something healthier 1. Premature ageing Excessive sugar consumption can cause long-term damage to skin proteins, collagen and elastin, leading to premature wrinkles and ageing. Too much sugar could also contribute to an imbalance of the female menstrual hormones which could result in acne along the jaw line. 2. Weight loss With a high glucose level, you can lose weight within a short period of time, even if meals are frequent and contain a lot of calories. 3. You suffer from frequent colds or the flu. If you get sick frequently, it may be because of excess sugar in your diet. Consuming too much sugar can weaken the immune system, which hurts the body’s ability to fight off flu viruses, colds, and even chronic diseases. 4. Insomnia Eating sugary foods late at night could lead to a rush in energy at a time when we should be focusing on slowing down and preparing the body to rest. If you're someone who has trouble sleeping, then it might help to reduce the sugar in your diet. 5. Infectious diseases Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and yeast infections can occur in both men and women. Yet much more often they’re found in women with high sugar levels and diabetes. A large amount of sugar creates a favorable environment for the reproduction of yeasts and bacteria. 6. Concentrating difficulties High sugar levels prevent glucose from entering the brain cells, so the brain experiences difficulties obtaining energy. This adversely affects the speed of thinking and decision-making. Don't forget to our channel. https://goo.gl/FncNar

What Happens To Sugar In Your Body?

Look on virtually any store shelf at your local grocery store, and you’ll see our love affair with sugar. Products you never thought would contain sugar are chock-full of the stuff. You might not even see “sugar” in the ingredient list, but it’s there! Agave nectar, barley malt, blackstrap molasses, brown rice syrup, cane juice, and the list goes on and on… all sugar and much of it high on the glycemic index, which is a measure of a food’s effect on your blood sugar. We crave sugar because it’s a carbohydrate that gives our body energy. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t exercise enough to put those carbohydrates to work fueling our bodies. Almost all scientific data recommends that we lower our average daily intake of sugar, but most of us fail to do so. Perhaps a look into your body and what happens to it when you eat sugar will help you understand why nutritionists recommend you put down that chocolate chip muffin. Dopamine. And It Feels So Good Whenever you eat something sweet, your brain releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine, which makes you feel happy. Eaten too frequently, sugar can desensitize this brain chemical and make it more difficult to feel sat Continue reading >>

    Exercise and ketosis

    This whole ketosis thing confuses me. It's fairly well documented that exercise forces glucose into muscles. If you are in ketosis, does forcing glucose into muscles through exercise knock you out of ketosis? And it's not like I can 'use up' or 'run out of' glucose because my liver keeps me well-supplied, even eating very low carb...my BG is usually higher after exercise than before.

And it's not like I can 'use up' or 'run out of' glucose because my liver keeps me well-supplied, even eating very low carb...my BG is usually higher after exercise than before. Part of the definition of ketosis is that your cells (including your muscles, brain and heart) switch off insisting on glucose as their primary fuel. They run off ketone bodies and/or free fatty acids instead. So, when in ketosis exercise generally has no effect on blood glucose because glucose is not involved.
    I have on more than on occasion check my blood sugar at 4 hours since eating anything, gone for a 1 or 2 hour workout and tested after it at the exact same level. So, that entire workout was fueled by other than glucose. That is normal for ketosis.
    So, in this state, exercise no longer "forces glucose into muscles" because they have switched to alternative fuels.
    No, exercise cannot knock you out of ketosis. The only thing which can do that is eating too many glucose-producing foods (carbs or proteins). Also, a prerequisite to achieving ketosis is depleting the glycogen stores in the liver so in most cases this shouldn't be an issue. There shouldn't be any stores significant to cause a spike.

    My body is in a ketosis state most every day and i,m sure i still burn glucose stores when exercising. Because the body coverts protien to glucose i always have some avalable however in much less supply due to my low carb diet. When i do cardio i can even feel when my body makes the switch. This is true also when i lift. If the body completly drained itself of glucose ones bood glucose reading would be 0.

How Is Glucose Absorbed?

Your body can break down fats and even proteins to get the energy it needs. But it’s glucose, derived from the digestion of carbohydrates, that your body desires. Glucose is the main source of energy for every single cell, and it is the preferred energy type for brain cells. If you have diabetes, your body has problems handling glucose, which can be very dangerous for your health. Video of the Day All carbohydrates, with the exception of fiber, eventually wind up as glucose. However, the way they get there varies. Sugars, which are simple carbs, are very small molecules that convert into glucose quickly after combining with enzymes in your small intestine. Starches, which are complex carbohydrates, undergo numerous steps before glucose is formed. When you chew, your mouth secretes saliva, an enzyme that starts breaking down complex starch compounds. Saliva turns starches into a kind of simple carbohydrate. As the simple molecules approach your small intestine, the enzymes there kick in again to break them down further, converting them into glucose. Your intestinal tract is lined with numerous microvilli, which are tiny fingerlike protrusions that increase surface area for the max Continue reading >>

    Asbestos Testing

    Hey guys (and ladies!),
    I'm a 28 yo male.
    Weight: 235
    BodyFat%: 12%
    IGF-1: 231 ng/ml
    Insulin (Fasting): 7.6 uIU/ml
    Having bad cholesterol, I decided to switch to a very low-carb diet. I was <50g carb/day and was deep in ketosis for about 4 months. Big changes happened. Triglycerides went from 300-400 down to 80-95 (-70%). HDL went from 26->40 (+55%). LDL+VLDL went from 136 -> 130 (-4%). Lipid profiles (so far as I can tell), don't change that rapidly so I expect the results to improve over the next year.
    For the first time in my life, I have blood work that indicates I'm not at risk for diabetes or heart disease. In the "before" era, I was in OK shape (16% bf). I didnt drink sodas, eat dessert or candy etc. I ate normal 'balanced' meals that included rice, whole grain etc.. So I maybe I just had bad genetics, maybe thats why my bloodwork sucked. WELL, nurture > nature.
    Now there are some downsides to being in ketosis:
    1. Fatigue: You muscles lose all their glycogen stores and replace them with triacylglycerol - triacylglycerol isn't as oxygen efficient in its metabolism. This means that you can't excercise close to your aerobic threshhold for very long at all.
    2. Insulin Resistence: When you first start going into ketosis, your fasting blood glucose is AMAZING. My fasting glucose went into the high seventies. However, prolonged ketosis causes insulin resistence & increased fasting blood glucose. By 4 months in my blood glucose was mid/high nineties. This isn't normal insulin resistence -> it exists to route all existing glucose to the brain instead of the muscles and is reversed once you start consuming carbs (oddly enough).
    For these reasons, I have stopped trying to be in ketosis and instead am doing just a low carb diet. Still no grains, no sugar (except that found in fruit), and few starchy veggies. What's the difference you might ask? Well I have added things like beans and fruit back into my diet. I'll post results in a month or two and we will see how that impacts the above results.
    As I was reading up on ketosis and its effects. I found that the ketogenic diet was invented a long time ago (100 years) to treat epilepsy. The reason that it helps with epilepsy is that the brain starts consuming ketone bodies instead of glucose when in ketosis. This prevents seizures! So as a result lots of epileptic children were put on ketogenic diets. And... they found that when kids were put on ketogenic diets their height and weight velocity (increase / year) was very significantly slowed. This will start sounding very familiar to you dwarf mice fans -- Now guess what was happening...? Their IGF-1 levels dropped significantly from being in ketosis and it became evident that their growth was stunted. (Can provided references)
    Ketosis causes IGF-1 to drop because a ketogenic diet isn't just a low carb diet, its a HIGH FAT DIET! Don't think 'Atkins' where you are eating steak and veggies. You have to control you protien intake as well (though it should be up a little bit). In a ketogenic diet, 75+% of your calories are going to come from fat! It might be starting to dawn on you how ludicous it felt: I was eating cheesy eggs & bacon to improve my risk for heart disease!!!! The reason that I mention that the ketogenic diet is really a high fat diet is because fat is the only macro-nutrient that doesn't stimulate insulin. Carbs stimulate insulin and to a lesser exent protien does as well. The picture should be pretty clear at this point how ketosis should impact IGF-1: High fat, medium protien and low carbs should radically lower the IGF-1 levels. And (as I'm hoping this audience already knows), IGF-1 levels dramatically effect aging in almost every animal its been studied in!
    Now on to my question!!!
    So I (kind of) screwed up. I didn't get a 'before' IGF-1 test. If you are going to do the same protocol, do this one thing. Get a complete 'before' test before you start - I was too axious to start, and boy I wish I had gotten it done. So here is my predicament:
    I don't have a baseline for my before 'IGF-1', now as a secondary problem I went out of ketosis and switched to just being low-carb about a 3 days before my blood work.... I know, I know. Ughhhh. To make matters worse, the baseline for IGF-1 is very ambiguous and every single source that I have read has a different reference interval for IGF-1 for my age group. Some show its sex dependent some show its not. So are my IGF-1 and/or insulin levels low?
    Anyways, thanks for reading. Please post if you found this interesting, would like to know more or think you can help answer my questions!!!
