It is important to mention that sugar is not so bad on its own, but the problem is the fact that it is added in almost all industrial products. Therefore, if you eat a lot of processed food, you are surely consuming more sugar than you need.
However, if you radically decrease the amount of sweet food (by replacing it with fruit, for example), and you stop adding sugar in your tea or coffee, you will definitely be more healthier, energetic and vital.
After you stop eating sugar you will:
- Become more energetic
A lot of people, when tired, drink coffee with sugar, or even worse, sweetened energetic drinks, in hope to restore their energy. In fact, sugar does the opposite, since it blocks the ability of the body to maintain the energy reserves. After being digested- in 15 to 30 minutes, you will again feel tired and irritable, even more than you previously and you a need for more sweets. Moreover, this is a never ending circle and the only way to get out of it, is to decrease the amount of sugar you intake.
- Your weight will stabilize
Sugar makes you eat more sugar i.e. it causes a chemical addiction. Since most of the processed foods contain tons of salt and sugar, your body keeps on pilling up surplus calories. Additionally, sugar also provokes a sense of hunger and tends on making you overeat. This is why the effect from Snickers wears off very quickly, and after an hour you are so hungry you can eat a horse.
- Your digestive tract functioning will better
If your organs are able to talk to you, they will surely beg you to eat as less processed food as you can. What’s more, you need to bear in mind that sugar is bad for your wellbeing, and fibers are good, so if you replace the sweets with fruits and vegetables, and you begin to consume sugarless coffee or tea, your digestive system will be thankful. Actually, your metabolism will speed up; you will have a more regular bowel movement.
- You will dislike sweets
This is a fact. Therefore, exclude sugar from hot beverages and you will notice that you will eat lesser cookies, biscuits and donuts. After some time passes by, you will be shocked since deliciously looking cakes and cookies will not attract you as they did before.
- Your skin will look healthier
Often times, you are not aware why your skin looks as it does, although you frequently apply creams and expensive cosmetic products. This is because sugar destroys the skin from the inside. And, if your organism has a chronic surplus of glucose, your skin will be dry and the body will be full of pimples which is a totally normal body reaction.
If you decide to stop consuming sugar, pay more attention to what you eat and drink. For example, always find out how much sugar there is in the products you are about to eat. Of course, this is not an easy process at all, but you need to remember that sugar addiction goes away in only 3 weeks. If you can survive them, in the future sweet foods will make you sick!
To conclude, if you are persistent in your decision, put a lot of effort and it will pay off in the end, for sure!
