Do you know that today,to prevent diabetes,what we need to watch is not only the amount of sugar we consume but also the amount of calories each day.Experts from Persadia said that calories can be more dangerous than sugar.
One most important reason is that calories can’t be converted into another substance inside our body.While in the other hand,sugar however can be transformed and stored inside our liver so that there’s already mechanism in our body that can control the sugar amount inside our bloodstream.Meanwhile,the only thing that we can do to control the calories amount inside our body is by doing physical activites.But,the research revealed that 40% of indonesian population are not engaged in active sports that can make the amount of calories and fat in our bodies become bigger and even more dangerous than uncontrolled sugar.
Secondly,we can see today,no one has ever succeed inventing the low calories food.We can see that most of the calories intake that we consume,comes from the food we eat such as rice,chicken,oil,etc. Those foods actually have high amount of calories.Take an example of rice,rice has 400kcal/1plate which is very high.While for normal indonesian human,our normal daily consume of calories is only about 2.500kcal/day.So that,i guess it’s impossible for human to invent an artificial-low-calories rice just now,even someday it might be possible.The safest way is not to rely to the products that we eat,the way is to control and to respond what we eat.Just take an example,you can still take rice for your breakfast as long as you balance it by doing sport exercise in order to burn your calories.
Furthermore,the low level of awarness for Indonesian people cause the problem even worse.Only 27% of Indonesian people realize the danger of calories while the rest don’t.So that,it causes people to have a tendancy to consume more and more calories that resulting in the increasing amount of diabetes victims.So that,more socialization and education are urgently needed in order to create a better society.
So that,based on the reasons above,one thing is very clear that calories can be even more dangerous than sugar because calories can also cause diabetes if we can’t control it.So that we can conclude,consuming too much calories will quicken your death to come.
