Coffee vs Sugar, MMA cage fight
A Healthy Lifestyle - Your Fitness Tribe


Or as i also call it, when stars make love



For many, coffee and sugar represents two superpowers emerged in an unholy alliance. But, just what makes this combo tick, and what is actually what. How does it affect your health and every day life. To find out the answer, we signed a contract with the previous couple to face off inside the octagon to determine who´s top dog and what they do to our bodies. 


In the blue corner, Sugar 

Pro´s: Sweet and petite, and pretty white. 

Cons: Increases body fat, rots your teeth, makes you age prematurely, increases diabetes and cancer and Alzheimer risk. Does not provide fuel for strength or endurance - and does not provide sufficient brain juice. 
Natures crack even makes you crave an endless array of more sugar when you eat it. That explanation comes down to our past cave men and hunter, gatherer lives - evolutionarily, our mesolimbic pathway reinforced that all the sweet things in nature provided a healthy source of carbohydrates (rich on easy to use energy and calories) for our bodies. While other taste sensations like sour meant far less desirable things. So, the more you eat, the more your dopamine and other neuro pathway signals needs to get triggered. 

Which, ultimately is why it is so easy for people to over eat on junk food and why it feels so hard for so many to eat less junk food, not to mention to keep eating healthy food and say no to cookies, ice cream, soda, candy and sweets. Another reason why it initially feels hard to cut down on junk food is that a lot of people tend to get depressed when they start eating less sugar. This is however just temporary, sort of like a crack addict suffering withdrawal problems. 

No, this is not just an issue for us Homo Sapiens, in a recent study, by Victor Mangabeira and colleagues, published in "Physiology & Behavior" it is reported that rats who had been trained to press a button to drink water, once exposed to sugar in the water pressed the button many more times than the rats that only had access to pure water. 


In the red trunks, Coffee 


Pro´s: Wonderful scent,toned, trimmed and athletic. and to boot, all pretty black. 

Coffee also provides wonderful warmth and real energy for mind, body, strength and endurance. 
It protects against cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, diabetes and obesity. 
It aids your muscles and mind with real energy, creating a double whammy of good stuff for people that also keep physically active, all good and positive things for creativity, strength, fat burn and endurance. It is also a positive influence for your mood thanks to how it affects the production of some of our natural hormones, such as serotonin and dopamine. 

Coffee have also been shown to protect against Multiple sclerosis (MS) which is a degenerative neurological disease. 


Cons: It might make you sleep poorly if you drink it too late since it takes as much as 8 hours for coffee to lose its positive hold on your body. 


Mutual con
 

Yes, there is one mutual big disadvantage to both. 
The industry producing both sugar and coffee rarely takes care of the planet that provides their revenue, nor the health of their workers. 
But in both cases, we the consumers can of course demand far better behavior from the producers by the shopping choices we make. 


Conclusion


Skip sugar - always. 
And get down with pure black coffee 4 to 5 times per day :). And, if your sweet tooth crave a sweet sensation, try some organic honey in your coffee.

To those of you who were a little confused; it is Mother's Day in United Kingdom, Ireland, Nigeria and Bangladesh today.

Mother's Day for my Mom and most of yours is only in May, my Mom gets wishes for both as dual nationality runs in our family :):) 

Happy Sunday all! Looking forward to seeing your pics over on +Sentimental Sunday Theme , don't forget to tag me <3
 
Love to you all this Mother's Day, may it be extra special!

Looking forward to seeing all your #SentimentalSunday +Sentimental Sunday Theme and #mothersday  shots today! 

My late Dad shot this quick pic after his best friend's wedding of my Mom and I. My hair was still covered in confetti and I was clutching a tiny bouquet, my thank you for being their flower girl <3 

Very special sentimental childhood memories... #mothersday  
Looking forward to seeing everyone's pics.  Happy Sunday all, make it a good one xo

Introduction

My first love is photography... 

Constantly inspired by all the wonderful photographers I have got to know since July 2011 on G+ Photography is always a learning curve for me and I love growing with everyone I have met on this amazing platform!


 On Google Plus I maintain and curate: 

 #SentimentalSunday Photography Theme,  

 I'm Co Founder and Curator of the G+ Worldwide Family Christmas Album with Randy Jay Braun &

 #ElephantWednesday with  Matthias Haeussler & Diego Cattaneo 


 My photography has been featured in the book: 

'How we see it...more views of our worlds...' in 2012

 A celebration of the diversity of female photographers and writers from Google Plus

By Beth Akerman

And 2013 in 'how we see it... our natural worlds'

By Beth Akerman


For those of you new to Google Plus:
