From the kitchen- natural sugar substitutes

Not consuming white sugar is no longer just limited to diabetic patients these days. It has become an essential part of a fitness diet plan. At Elate Wellbeing Lounge, I get a lot of clients who are looking specifically to lose weight or are facing certain skin and stomach conditions. Being the Nutritionist, not only do I give them a “diet plan” but it is always something that is easily available or is not “fancy”. Weight loss is one such frenzy.

White sugar is nothing but empty calories.

All foods contain calories that are converted by the body into energy. But along with calories food also gives us important micro and macronutrients. But white sugar does not have any nutritive value, its only calories.
