Sugar vs. Fat: What's Important to Consider in Your Snacks
Choosing your snacks wisely is key to maintaining a healthy and energetic lifestyle. However, there's a lot of hype surrounding fat and sugar. You already know that too much of either is bad, and can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems. But is one really worse than the other? And how do choose the right snacks when you're busy or on the go? Here's what you need to consider when selecting a snack to beat the mid-day slump.
Your Body Turns Excess Sugar Into Fat
Too much sugar does far more than give you cavities or a temporary "sugar high." It's impossible for your body to process all of the sugar contained in high sugar foods, like soft drinks and candy bars. In order to keep from wasting the energy, your body converts the sugar that your body can't use immediately into fat. Your body then stores that fat for later use. Too much sugar can lead to weight gain, while a reduced sugar or low carbohydrate diet can help you lose weight.
Good Fats vs. Bad Fats
Unlike sugar, not all fats are bad. Some fats, like monounsaturated fats, are healthy for your body and can help reduce the risk of high cholesterol and heart disease. Examples of good fats include avocados, olive oil, nuts, eggs, and fatty fish like salmon. Examples of fats that you want to limit or avoid all together include potato chips, microwave popcorn, frozen and convenience foods, and french fries.
What to Eat Instead
Preparing healthy snacks to keep hunger at bay or finding healthy snacks when you're on the go can be a challenge. You know that consuming low fat, low sugar snacks is important to keeping up your energy levels throughout the day, as well as helping you meet your weight-related goals. When there's little too choose from besides fast food or convenience store snacks, it's easy to get off track.
Surprisingly, you're more likely to be able to find healthy, satisfying snacks that are both low in sugar and low in fats from a high quality vending machine. Examples of great snacks that are also good for you include granola bars, dried fruit and nut mixes, prepared chicken and tuna salads, and health food bars.
