Sugar or Sweetener? Your Body Knows What's Right

A very interesting post. I think that a treatment of the hazards of glycemic sugars would have rounded it out even better. It should be noted that agave nectar has a demonstrated benefit because it is a low-glycemic sugar. For those who are concerned about the hazards of glycemic sugars, agave nectar provides an interesting low-glycemic alternative, which should not contribute to insulin resistance when used in moderation. Yes, it may increase triglycerides, but one uses significantly less agave nectar, because it is alot sweeter than conventional sugar or corn syrup. Like all sugars, it is crucial to restrict portions. I am eager to discuss this further and to learn more, so please feel free to pass the comments along.
