    When I was a kid I would mix pure sugar packs with my Coca-Cola when I ate at restaurants. Pretty gross I know

  • ecos889

    I habvtoo much of an addictive personality to eat sugar I had to replace sugar with fruit and full fat greek yoghurt and nuts.

  • GabryBelieve

    and what about the insulin impact? even with a good diet, with healthy foods and calorie deficit... it would change the metabolic processes and make your strategy more ineffective. could it be? am i wrong? about the other things i totally agree. i'd like to listen more about it because there're a lot more problems with the sugar, i think you haven't talked about it because they're not about the world of fitness , but mostly about the neuropsychological world. however well done coach, good video!

    Coach Greg, just want to say sugar itself isn't addicting for the taste. It's addicting because of the endorphin rush! It literally makes you happy! Now, how much is what we're raised with and how much is evolutionary? That's debatable. But we evolved to eat crave sugar from our ancestors, another reason for the addition, DNA!

  • Ben

    I'm kind of shocked that Coach Greg endorses diet coke, I'm no expert but isn't the sugar substitute aspartame which is supposed to be carcinogenic? No hate just curious

    Of course sugar is good for you. Our brains run on glucose, therefore our bodies run on glucose. Is refined sugar great for you? No. Is natural sugar great for you? YES. Unless you're diabetic you need to get/will benefit from natural sugar in your diet.

    But......isn't sugar.......the one that makes it so yummy?

    Isn't insulin a storage hormone? And 100 calories of sugar isn't the same as 100 in broccoli, I just dont believe it

    Could you cover 'That Sugar Film' from 2014? Curious how an individual who switched to a high sugar diet (mind you maintained the same number of calories) still managed to gain 19lbs in 60 days, as well as developed fatty liver disease if sugar is completely good for you.

    Hi coach Greg! I like your informational videos could you do one about protein powder? I’m not sure whether I want to add it into my diet or not. I eat skyr and Greek yogurt and meat so usually I have enough protein. What do you recommend?

  • jacobzeier

    I agree. Sugar is good for you. Fuck the haters. Unfortunately, we share a very unpopular opinion. This anti-sugar movement has gone way too far. It's 2021, and it really needs to stop. My god! Sugar has been heavily demonized since at least the late 80s/early 90s (1987-1992), back in the 50s to the mid 80s, saturated fat and cholesterol was demonized the shit out of, sugar was too, but not as much, but thanks to the dumbass keto diet, the whole game has changed; "Saturated fat is great for you, but sugar is an abomination!" I like sugar, but i only eat it in small amounts because I'm on a diet, same goes for saturated fat. Sugar does NOT affect my weight loss, positive or negative. Same goes for saturated fat. I think it's a good idea for people to eat less sugar and fat in favor of protein and fiber. Their are healthy versions of choice foods out there, like Diet Direct products, a good one in my opinion. I used to be quite fat 5 years ago, due to eating lots of calories, including sugar and saturated fat. But what have i been doing since the past 5 months? Simple: I significantly reduced the amount of calories i eat every day. 1950 calories, on average. I weighed 216 lbs. with a 40 in. belly on September 20, 2020, today I weigh 187 lbs. with a 37 in. belly. Dieting requires time and patience. It isn't easy but is very necessary to improve my health and appearance. Although I believe sugar is a health food in its own right, same with saturated fat, neither of them should ever be consumed alone because it can't suppress your appetite like fiber and protein can. Yeah, sugar is not so good for your teeth, that is a definite drawback I can think of, but that can easily be mitigated with proper dental and oral hygiene, which you should be doing anyway. I know i do. Other than that, good video. Sadly a lot of these keto dorks are going to bash this no matter what.

    Sugar and salt have been the biggest breaker in my diet because high sugar and salt items are generally calorie dense and I binge eat (like disorder levels of binge, last time I binged I ate 3 medium pizzas, 18 knots, 12 cinnamon knots, a half-gallon of ice cream with fudge/peanuts...and that was one meal). Sugar isn't a problem, neither is fat: the problem is that IF you open those floodgates (at least for me), you go nuts. If you're gonna cheat, buy what you're gonna cheat with 2-3 days BEFORE you plan on cheating and over those extra days you need to divvy up the stuff objectively and THROW THE EXTRA AWAY. 107lbs down boys, was 357 and I'm now 250. 245 is my goal to enter the military (sub 26 BF). Hoping to hit 220 by June. Thank you for the info and support Greg; just you being you is all I need to keep pushing.

    I'm sorry but the point about sugar not being addicting because people tend not to just eat pure sugar, is almost like saying alcohol isn't addictive just because people don't normally drink straight distilled alcohol, and even when they do it's very rarely nearly pure alcohol but probably below 50%. I bet you ANYTHING if a sugar addict was forced to do zero carb(since most carbs spike blood sugar it can alleviate some symptoms, kind of like a nicotine patch), unless they ate pure sugar, they would be tempted then. A lot would just eat sugar if they HAD to. Keto flu is largely withdrawals from carbs in general, having complex carbs in place of sugar is enough to alleviate those symptoms but you might still get some psychological symptoms, like you might if you're a smoker and are using a nicotine patch, your brain is used to that sudden hit if nicotine. That said having been into strict keto and sometimes zero-carb for a few years, been reverse dieting with mostly carbs the past 6 months and I have no problems strictly cutting carbs for 1-2 days here and there, I plan to go back to mostly keto with strategically used carbs. Been having plenty of sugar too, some days a full box of Jovial cookies which is about 55g of sugar. If you have a really strong adaptation to keto you tend not to get keto flu symptoms anymore, but I still notice some psychological symptoms, I've overcome addition to things like nicotine, opioids, and alcohol though so it's tolerable now. Carbs are important for free testosterone and hormonal balance in general among other things, I realize that now and also if you limit them too strictly too long, your body loses adaptation to using them efficiently for energy and even to digest them properly, people thinking they can do carnivore long-term are in for a rude awakening.

    A calorie isn't a calorie, some calories ie calories from sugar have different effects on hormones. Hormones determine fat loss not calories in calories out. CICO is only right to a point. Body builders are the worst at nutritional advice. ]

    Nah the whole “it needs to be combined with fat” to be addicting isn’t true. You can easily put away 1000 calories from gummy worms and red vines, and they have no fat at all.

    That's all good and well from a fat loss perspective, but you haven't touched on the health implications of having a sustained elevated blood sugar level and how it is a known major contributor to type 2 diabetes. In your scenario where your maintenance is 3000 cals and you eat 2000 cals 100% you will loose fat, but there will be major health implications if that "diet" is sustained.

    Totally not true, sugars aka fructose are metabolized differently in the body than other macronutrients (glucose for example), calories are not equal, Gregg is the one who talk about every subject assuming he knows everything

    I'm sorry Greg you are totally wrong about suger addiction 1st there are people who are totally addicted who eat straight up suger ( I used to be like that ) suger addiction and consumption comes in many shapes and forms denying a huge problem isn't going to solve it What are you doing is enabling people and giving them excuses to continue with their addiction If your opinion came from ignorance then , please do the research next time . and if not then you should delete the video

    10/10 on More spews more views, Greg. Watched the whole video. As a medical professional I can say this is a very DANGEROUS advice from a very prominent and respected HRpostsr. This shows your mere ignorance on how your body treats different nutrients differently. The "Good" situations are all situational as well. A person who is used to not consuming a lot of sugar will be efficient in converting other foods into what it needs and thus become more stable in energy throughout the day thanks to the lack of sugar insulin spikes which drains you. Its Not Just calories in and out my God your body doesnt even have receptors for calories Greg. If you eat your maintainance in FULL sugar you WILL get fat. That is the reality not the one in your calories in and out fantasy because your body treats sugar differently. Furthermore avoiding and minimizing added sugar has been found to produce a lot of health benefits. One gets used to life without sugar. Not too long ago I add sugar in my coffee. Now I cannot stand the taste of sweet coffee. Plus splenda and equal just taste horrible compared to the real thing..especially muscovado

    I'm a former competitive bodybuilder myself. Turned vegan triathlete and I can tell you 10000% that real organic cane sugar is where it's at. It's one of the biggest lies ever told that it's bad for us. Glycemic index is in the 50s, bet most people don't know that. Our bodies were designed to run on sugar. That's not a mistake. If you eat high carb low fat you'll be amazed at how much sugar and carbs you can get in and still stay lean and perform well. I take in over 600 grams of sugar a day and it's a night and day difference in my overall performance the next day if I don't do it.

    Imma harshly disagree with you on this. Sugar's negativity does not solely end on it being calorie dense.

  • BigPete

    This is a bit of a straw man arguement... I'm a big fan but this is done too much in the fitness community, why do people not want to admit that sugar is addictive. 'I'm not addicted to coffee because I wouldn't snort a line of caffeine". You don't really want the coffee without the caffine and you don't really want the muffin without the sugar. Sugar does trigger dopamine receptors (the same reward pathway) as many drugs. I'm not saying this as an excuse and the rest I agree with, sugar DOES make you hungrier, sugary drinks are a waste of calories. But sugar is addictive like drugs, not as addictive, but addictive.

    Bad Carbs and Refined Sugar are the death of us all. I STRONGLY believe it''s one of the causes of cancer bro. Have a pastry here and there, but keep it out of your diet most of the time. Have fruits all day and everyday is just fine. You want a good sugar? Use Better Stevia Balance.
