The Sugar Busters Diet is based on the assertion that if you cut down the sugar (carbohydrate) in your diet, you will trim the fat off your body. It is based on the assertion that because carbohydrates are the body's first line of fuel for energy, when carbohydrate restriction is greater than the need to produce energy, the body begins to burn stored reserves of fat for energy. The Sugar Busters Diet focuses on eliminating all processed sugars, such as sugar and high fructose corn syrup, and highly refined products that contain processed flours, and pastas, noodles, and cereals that are not made of 100% whole grains. The Sugar Busters Diet stresses protein, such as meat, fish, and eggs, and fats. Carbohydrates that are allowed include those foods made from 100% whole grains, high-fiber vegetables, and some fruits and small quantities of brown rice, oats, and sweet potatoes. Sugar Busters also discourages the use of foods high in cholesterol and saturated fats, encourages that dieters eat three meals a day of moderate portions, and advocates activity and exercise as a part of the plan. The carbohydrate and calorie reduction of Sugar Busters may not be safe for some people, such as athletes.
As with any diet, optimal results for health and weight control are achieved when a healthy diet plan is combined with a sensible exercise program and healthy lifestyle changes. Any diet may have the potential to be harmful for some people, so consultation with a health care provider before starting a diet plan and exercise program is recommended.
