Fit & Fierce: Sugar & It’s Impact on the Body

Many are unaware of the negative impacts of sugar. Every day we consume an extra 300 calories of sugar. That’s equivalent to 17 spoonfuls of sugar. Yet it is difficult to avoid sugar in our day-to-day life.


Difference Types of Sugars

Natural sugars- found in fruits and vegetables

Processed sugars- the additional sugar we add to foods, usually added to premade food. This type of sugar has little nutritional value. 

The American Heart Association recommends no more than 100 calories of sugar per day. 

Coach Bev recommends food tracking apps like MyFitnessPal to avoid problems like irritability and mood swings or fatigue and low energy due to sugar addiction. 



About Coach Bev:

Beverly K. Johnson/Fit & FierceHaving been a Zumba instructor for years, Beverly K. Johnson knew her influence included more than fitness training when a candid conversation with an exercising client revealed that women in caretaker roles often forget about themselves. She named her new motivational fitness business Genesys Fitness because it signified a rebirth for the often “forgotten” woman: the divorce’, caretaker, and empty-nester.  

The NYC Journal highlighted Beverly in 2022 for being in the Top 30 Female Entrepreneurs to Look Out For. Beverly specializes in creating, educating, and implementing motivational wellness routines into the everyday woman’s life. She has been featured in Sheen Magazine for her article, “Are you Sabotaging Your Wellness Journey?” In this article, she uses her years of experience to educate readers in a relatable way so they can get ahead of their own wellness journey.
