Sugar

sugar and carbs

By nature, many people find sugar very tasty. For this reason, industrially processed foods often contain a lot of sugar. Too much sugar is not healthy and contributes to diabetes, cancer, heart disease and obesity.
Try to avoid or limit the consumption of sugar (including honey and artificial sweeteners) and carbohydrates.
Fresh produce rarely contains unhealthy amounts of sugar.

To get a more even blood sugar level, limit carbohydrates. If you do eat them, avoid fast carbohydrates and eat them along with foods high in fiber, protein and fat. It is better to eat full-fat products and limit the consumption of carbohydrates and sugar.

Soft drinks

Soft drinks are not found in nature. That’s the reason our bodies don’t recognize that these drinks are often very high in calories. When you drink a lot of soft drinks, the result can be high glucose levels in the blood. This can cause damage to our tissues and organs and encourage a strong tendency towards fat.
Drinking light soft drinks does not solve this problem. The sweeteners seem (due to the confusing effect the artificial sweeteners have on the brain) to lead to increased cravings for carbohydrates, and thus to an equal tendency to obesity as sugary drinks. 

It is much healthier to replace soft drinks with water, freshly brewed coffee or tea.

Nutrition and pregnancy

Nutrition is very important if you want to become pregnant. You are not only concerned with your own health, but you are also laying a good foundation for your future baby. Healthy for you, healthy for your baby. That is a double win. When you adjust your diet, you can already achieve a lot. Did you know, for example, that just eating more foods containing iron can help a lot?
Some foods you should leave out and other things you should eat more of.
