Sugar, sugar, sugar. This sweet, delectable substance is an absolute killer!
It’s a killer on your teeth, killer on your digestive system and a killer on your butt.
Unbeknownst to many, this sweet substance has several not-so-sweet negative effects.
Sugar can contribute to bloating, fluid retention, weight gain, acne, reduced immunity, and spiked insulin levels.
Ever noticed after eating a piece of cake, your spirits are lifted? This is the sugar taking your body on a serious high… but what goes up must come down.
Sugar causes huge physical spikes in your body which translate to emotional spikes.
Yep. Sugar takes your body on one massive roller coaster ride. Not ideal at all.
However, probably the most disturbing news to date is about cancer and sugar being linked together. According to the Mayo Clinic, a non-profit medical research and education center, consuming large amounts of sugar can lead to an increased risk of cancer, not to mention other diseases like diabetes. They stated that “…there is some evidence that consuming large amounts of sugar is associated with an increased risk of certain cancers, including esophageal cancer. It can also lead to weight gain and increase the risk of obesity and diabetes, which may increase the risk of cancer.”
Eliminating or reducing sugar from your diet will help your body’s functionality immensely.
Of course, sugar is highly addictive, so coming off sugar can be a difficult task.
Once your body has overcome this phase, you will find your body and mind will feel much more level and predictable.
So go on, challenge yourself and kick sugar to the curb. It may not be easy but the results are 100% worth it.
