It’s Monday and it’s the weekend after the most candy consumption of the year. All that lovely sugar in the body! Figured today I’ll get a little technical and pull out some minor nursing knowledge. There are two things that can happen to sugar when broken down in the body. It can get broken down and turned into insulin which in return provides your body with energy. The other way is your body can break this sugar down and turn it into fat. Now obviously not all sugar is bad. However most of the candy ingested this weekend was probably bad sugar. So with that in mind saddle up & head to workouts! It’s totally fine to eat candy at times (hey I’m not a dentist) but be sure to work off that fat afterwards! P.S. no more excessive candy intake the rest of the year.
