    unrefined sugars and getting ripped


    We all know the refined sugars are bad. But what about stuff like raw honey or agave, OR the unrefined cane sugar?

    I like to have a bit in coffee, tea etc... the only part of my diet where I do have a sweet tooth. About 1x-3x a day. ( 2 tbls a time ).

    Will these sugary additions affect my goals of becoming ripped?

    theres really no way to answer this unless we see your diet, weight bodyfat ect to make a better judgement if cals are met and its not too much then you should be fine

    thing is when your carb intake is medium... or just above or near the thresholfd youd need to be in ketosis, your body may be switching back and forth between energy symtoms and causing some catabolism.

    if cals are good and carbs are high enough you should be fine, but depenmds on the diet you want to do.

    but those sugars arent bad. no bad carbs really, just bad timing for them.

    I eat pretty clean.... but not strict. ( very occasionally junk, but that's getting more rare these days ). Try to stick to smaller meals every 3.5-4 hours. Protein after workouts etc...
