I was told that if I ate an apple the sugars would be the same if I drank a can of coke. Just wondering if that is true or not. Any info would be great.
Yeah it's true. But this is a story people tell you to make you feel justified in drinking coke. The sugar in the apple is in a different chemical state, the body has a very easy time breaking it down without overcompensating. The sugar in a coke is in such a form it drives your insulin levels crazy! The body overcompensates for the sugar and that is where the negative effects come in, not in the amount of sugar itself.
No.. that is not true...i'm a certified fitness trainer...and the sugars from fruits,(Fructose) are low glycemic sugars...which don't boost your insulin levels as high as a can of coke...sodas are the worst thing for you to drink...an apple is definetely a better choice...
