The basic fuel of your food machine (body) is glucose. It is vital to the functioning of every cell of the body. All carbohydrates become glucose during the digestive process. White sugar, as we know it, is the combination of glucose and fructose. When this type of sugar enters the body, it encourages yeast growth. Its action in the body is similar to that of the brewer's yeast you bake with; when you put the yeast in warm water it begins to grow, and adding sugar aids the growth, making the yeast very bubbly and active. Table sugar and foods with high quantities of hidden sugar should be avoided as much as possible. Luckily, you can avoid table sugar and still get all the glucose needed to keep your body's cells functioning efficiently.

This can be done by eating a wide variety of carbohydrates, which are largely made up of glucose. Granulated sugar is one of the most commony overeaten foods in our country. Filled with empty calories, it provides and initial rush of energy, but quickly slows the body down. Carbohydrates, however, provide slow burning fuel to prvide long term energy.
