Does the Sugar Impact Diet mean eating sugar-free?

How do I know which sugars are okay?
We use something called the “Sugar Impact Scales.” Other diets only look at a food’s carb or calorie count or consider its spot on the glycemic index. But none of those gives you an accurate measurement of how sugar is affecting your weight and overall health. The Sugar Impact Diet takes into account a food’s fructose content, nutrient density, and fiber, as well as how the food affects your blood sugar levels. All of this science is used to create an easy way to categorize foods: high-, medium-, or low-sugar impact. Those categories are the Sugar Impact Scales.
Think of low-SI foods as “green.” You’re good to go on these foods, so eat them regularly. Consider the medium-SI foods yellow: proceed with caution, and incorporate only the amount you can eat and still feel great. When it comes to high-SI foods, you guessed it – stop! Think of them as red. Eat and drink them as a rare treat, and even when you do, you’re likely to feel it. (And not in a good way...)
