Added sugars and solid fats are considered empty calories.

These refined sugars or added sugars are sugars and syrups that are added to foods or beverages when they are processed or prepared and are often high glycemic leading to insulin resistance, weight gain and metabolic syndrome.

This does not include naturally occurring sugars such as those in milk and fruits as they are not considered processed or added.

What’s causing your weight gain? - Added sugars

  • Up to 70 percent of the population in the United States deals with being overweight or obese
  • 35 percent of all adults, according to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are prediabetic and have significant insulin resistance while another 36 percent have some signs of insulin resistance
  • Diabetes has increased by over 500 percent in the last 50 years or so and now affects 8 percent of the population.
