I don't like sugar at all and will probably be bad for your skin in the long run (glycation etc). Besides that it'll just make you fat and fuck up any leanmaxxing. Some people can tolerate more sugar than others but to me it's BAD.

It's one of the main things I try to avoid. Whenever my sugar intake is higher, I feel worse mentally and physically. I really don't think sugar is necessary or beneficial in general. Will be different for different people too ofc.

But yeah, sugarmaxxing is an everythingminn for me. I know raypeaters like sugar and found consumption beneficial in some way but for me it's just not good.

Btw I don't recommend completely eliminating sugar to try improve your skin or whatever.

I feel sleepy and yawn if i hadn't eaten enough carbs tho, so sugar is beneficial to me ngl. And what do you mean by glycation, i thought sugar being bad for skin is a myth

Peat and Haidut mentioned that most "sugar glycation" are just the break down products of PUFA's

Glycation is like a long term condition where glucose in skin fibers interfere with proteins like collagen and elastin. A high sugar diet will probably make your skin age faster OVER A PERIOD OF TIME (like years). But if you're eating so much sugar you'd run into worries about diabetes before worrying about glycation of your skin. So tbh there's not much to worry about in terms of skin health if you just plan on eating more sugar temporarily. Glycation is so overblown. It's akin to being a chronic smoker. Chronic sugar intake will have you worried about insulin resistance, prediabetes etc before stuff like aging skin.

Eat more carbs if you feel the need to. I wouldn't recommend just eating pure sugar though.

Sugar has lower GI then white rice tho, and slightly more then potatoes so it seems fine diabetes wise

only refined white sugar should be restricted if you don't have the proper nutrition
