According to a study presented at the American Heart Associations conference this past weekend, even women who consume sugary drinks–from iced tea to soda to chai lattes– and factor those calories into their daily diet and remain “skinny”, they still increase their risk of heart disease.
It all comes back to what I said in my book, Chill Out and Get Healthy: SUGAR IS EVIL.
The lead scientist on the study stated, “It was striking that women with a sugary drinking habit developed high levels of triglycerides, which are a type of fat, but men did not.
The study concluded the following:
Women who drank two or more sugary beverages per day were four times more likely to develop high triglyceride levels than women who drank fewer sugar-sweetened beverages. Women with the liquid sugar habit were also were more likely to develop abnormal levels of fasting glucose, a sign they could be developing diabetes.
Please, watch your sugar intake!
