Is This Common, Everyday Food Making You Lazy?

June 04, 2015 1 min read

From the time we were children we have attributed eating sweets to "sugar rushes", that boost of energy that made us absolutely crazy. But new study have found that fructose, a form of sugar found in many foods, can actually diminish our energy levels and make us lazy and sluggish. A new study by the University of Illinois found eating artificial fructose makes your body gain weight, and contributes to inactivity. Fructose is metabolized differently than glucose, its sugary counterpart. Fructose has been shown to increase the amount of body fat deposited throughout the body, so it could be to blame for your excess belly pudge. Oh, and artificially added fructose is linked to problems beyond the weight gain and activity level realm. Excess consumption may cause kidney stones, inflammation, memory problems, insulin resistance, painful gas and liver damage. Startlingly, fructose accounts of 10% of the average person's diet. It can be found in high doses added into ketchup, salad dressings and even bread. So if you think avoiding only brownies and pop is the answer, think again! The trick is to check your labels carefully, and avoid many process, packaged foods in the grocery store because they typically are sweetened with fructose. Reducing your fructose intake can have significant improvements to your health, weight and energy level. What are ways you have cut back on fructose? Or sugar all together? Let us know!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS.
