  • sucrose

    i always hear about too much sucrose being detrimental and to stay away from it

    the reasons ive read and heard about were mainly body fat and leading to extreme things like diabetes

    now gaining body fat i have no problem with as im ectomorphic but the latter obviously gets one thinking

    so can you name me other reasons to avoid sucrose? could i use it to sweeten my protein shakes? (even when bulking i dont really eat any sweets ) yeah there are artificial sweeteners and other alternatives but then ofcourse i hear equally bad things about them, so im kind of confused

    wouldnt someone have to consume large amounts of sucrose daily to develop diabetes or something as serious?

    for most people it would take large amounts of sugar eaten regularly for a long time to develop diabetes. unless it runs in your family, you should be alright adding some sugar to your shakes.

    edit::keep in mind that most americans who develop diabetes have a horrible diet with TONS of sugar. you know, drinking soda for most meals (easily over 100g/day), sugar on/in their meals, sugary snacks between/with meals.... you get the idea

      I would personally not use plain sucrose, rather eat fruits which contain some sucrose.

      I'm ectomorphic too but I still avoid prosecced carbs and high GI carbs so I will have a good insulin sensitivity in the future and can more easily be muscular & lean.

      It's hard to say what amount but from what I'we read I think there is a connection between the two.

        so just to be clear, you dont think i should use ALL sucrose to sweeten shakes?

          I think sucrose will very likely increase your calorie intake because of the fructose in it (it also worked in my experience). sucrose contains fructose and glucose (although it's somehow not the same as eating just fructose and glucose) and fructose "blunts" leptin which is one of many things that make you full.

          So I would rather use something else than sucrose but if you have very hard time gaining weight then sucrose will help you ingesting more calories but I would rather use fruits (fruits contain fructose), in my experience fruits help me take in more calories and they are good for you too.
