  • Difference between carbs and sugar on food labels - Atkins Blog | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    so do you just avoid sugar or is it the total amount of carbs that matter on Atkins These questions arise all the time so I wanted to write a short blog explaining the different types of carbs Before I even get to this though remember to look at the serving size on labels Located at the top of the table the serving size may be different from what you consume so ensure you re calculating according to how much you re eating So on the above example this label shows the nutritional information per 100ml and per 250ml serving Carbohydrate Carbohydrates comprise of three different nutrients starches sugar dietary fibre So on Atkins you d count the whole amount of carbohydrates with no deductions if you re in the UK EU For the example above you d count 26 3g carbs per 250ml Carbohydrates come from many sources such as fizzy drinks which are just sugary carbs to white bread which contain refined carbs to complex carbs from vegetables However all carbs except fibre impact blood sugar so all carbs should be counted Sugar All sugars whether added or naturally present in foods drinks are shown in the sugar section of the nutritional panel So will include lactose milk sugar sucrose fructose etc However on the label you ll see of which sugars and this is included within the carbohydrate total so don t count it separately Carbohydrates 3g Of which sugars 2 8g For this example you d count 3g carbohydrates and the sugar amount of that total is 2 8g Sugar is found in many forms such as sweets fizzy drinks and desserts However sugar is also found in other foods like sauces condiments bread and other savoury foods Always check labels on foods that have them Having high sugar foods causes a sugar high as it spikes insulin levels and your body is more likely to store the carbs as bodyfat Then you often experience a crash in energy and feel lethargic and craving more sugary foods So try keep sugar intake to a minimum and get the majority of yoru carbs from vegetables and other complex carbs Fibre This nutrient is what causes some confusion as much of the Atkins older books are American and so refer to net carbs whereby you deduct fibre from the total carbs However as stated above on UK EU labels you don t deduct fibre as it s shown separately Don t avoid fibre as it helps to promote healthy digestion stabilise blood sugar levels and can lower blood cholesterol levels too So has many health benefits and the recommendation is for 30g of fibre per day for adults So keep your vegetable intake high and you can even add ground flaxseeds to your meals if you re struggling to keep fibre intake to an optimal level Net Carbs In the UK this only applies to low carb foods such as Atkins products The net carb reference is when

  • How certain foods can ease the symptoms of menopause - Atkins Blog | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    dry skin and depression by choosing the right foods and avoiding others Here are the top 5 foods I d recommend you avoid and the top 5 you can enjoy to help to balance your hormones and make the menopause as painless as possible Avoid Sugary foods It can be hard enough to get through an afternoon slump when you re in the throes of menopause but couple that with the spikes crashes in blood insulin levels caused by sugary foods and you ll set yourself up to be falling asleep mid afternoon So avoid sugary drinks junk foods and desserts and your blood sugar levels will stabilise which will leave your energy level on a more even keel Instead eat Good fats Eating more dietary fat will help to keep you fuller and less likely to crave sugar Plus fat has little impact on blood sugar so doesn t cause those rapid spikes dips Reach for some salmon or mackerel for lunch or have some nuts or olives as a snack to fill you up between meals Avoid Alcohol Whilst a glass of wine or 2 may be your evening ritual drinking alcohol de hydrates the body and will increase any symptoms of dry skin Plus alcohol is processed before other macronutrients which will mean you ll find it harder to lose or maintain weight loss Instead have Green Tea Switch your wine for a few cups of green tea and you ll not only re hydrate your body but Green tea is full of antioxidants which help with oxidative stress in the body and help to slow the ageing process Avoid Refined carbs such as white bread pasta Not only can these types of foods make you pack on the lbs but such refined carbs which have many of the nutrients removed have been linked to an increased risk of depression due to unbalanced blood sugar levels Instead have Foods which contain tryptophan which is an amino acid which helps to produce serotonin the happy hormone in the body You ll find tryptophan in foods such as turkey and cottage cheese Avoid Foods which contain trans fats such as margarine and cakes This man made fat has been linked to a plethora of health concerns including increased cholesterol and risk of type II diabetes Instead have Omega 3 fats These types of fats found in fatty fish like salmon mackerel are healthy for numerous reasons including hormone production mood regulation and even may help you to control your weight Avoid Too much fruit Whilst fruit does have some health properties you can get the same if not more nutrients from vegetables So if aiming for your 5 a day then get most of this five from vegetables Fruit is high in sugar so too much can lead to fat storage Aim to eat maximum 2 3 pieces of fruit per day and low glycemic fruits such as berries are better Instead have High fibre vegetables are packed with
