Calories In < Calories Out ≠ Weight Loss

Most people think that to lose weight, you just need to consume less calories than what you use on a daily basis. Well, it turns out that that’s not enough and not true. Eating low calorie foods with high sugar content will still result in consuming more calories that what you think you’re consuming from reading the nutrition label because sugar, both the natural kind from fruits (glucose) and the other kind (fructose / high fructose corn syrup), will get converted to fat which will not only lead to obesity but also to many health problems. Unfortunately, most processed foods you can find all around you contain LOTS of sugar including hamburger buns, ketchup, barbecue sauce, and many other things that don’t taste very sweet. Carbohydrates / carbs (especially sugar) -> insulin -> fat! [..]
