Even though many people think that we gain weight by eating fats and carbs, that’s not true. It’s mostly because we gain sugars. Eating sugar moderately isn’t risky, but if you drink sodas or eat candy and cereals every day, you will certainly gain weight.
A healthy way of eating sugar that will satisfy your cravings is through bananas, honey, raisins, organic juices, mangos etc. In case of sugar overdose, you’ll have signs like depression, fatigue, headaches, hyperactivity, drowsiness, yeasts, mental dizziness, sinus issues, colds, heart problems, breast cancer, diabetes etc.
Is weight gain linked to sugar?
By ingesting sugar, our body mostly uses it as a source of energy, but the rest of it becomes stored as fat. Natural sugar isn’t even near added sugar. Added sugar can cause intestinal bacteria, create more blood etc. What’s left of it becomes stored to our waist, hips and thighs.
‘No’ to sugar!
It’s true! You can say ‘No’ to sugar. You’ll probably experience symptoms of withdrawal like cravings, headaches, sadness or fatigue. It usually appears after you’ve eaten something. The body sends a signal towards your brain and you start craving for sugar.
Stop ingesting added sugar, but with slow steps. Remove one kind of sugar at a time. You’ll probably feel dizzy and crave for a lot of sugar, but you’ll feel OK soon.
