Do the Holidays got you down?
Have you been sneaking around the candy bowl on a late night sugar binge?
Are you sick of riding the glucose roller coaster?
Sugar causes glucose levels to spike and plummet.
Unstable blood sugar can leave you experiencing mood swings, fatigue, and headaches. It also contributes to cravings, which begins the cycle of false hunger.
Sugar increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
While we all like to indulge once in a while, foods that quickly affect blood sugar contribute to a greater risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
Sugar affects your immune system.
As if being sick wasn’t bad enough, studies have shown that sugar can interfere with the way your body fights disease.
Sugar accelerates aging.
While you probably know that sugars can affect your body composition, they can also mess with your skin by contributing to wrinkles and sagging.
Sugar causes tooth decay.
With all the other life-threatening effects of sugar, we sometimes forget the essential cosmetic damage it does. When it sits on your teeth, sugar causes decay more efficiently than any other food.
Sugar takes the place of essential nutrients.
According to USDA data, people who consume the most sugar have the lowest intakes of essential nutrients––especially vitamins A, C, B-12, and calcium.
Sugar is linked to acne.
Sugary foods quickly spike blood sugar and insulin levels, causing increased androgen secretion, oil production, and inflammation, all of which play a role in acne development.
Sugar increases your risk for diabetes.
Obesity, which is often caused by consuming too much sugar, is considered the most influential risk factor for diabetes.
Sugar increases your risk of depression
While a healthy diet can help improve your mood, a diet high in added sugar and processed foods may increase your chances of developing depression.
Sugar drains your energy
Products that are loaded with sugar but lacking in protein, fiber or fat lead to a brief energy boost that’s quickly followed by a sharp drop in blood sugar, often referred to as a crash
The overproduction of insulin from excess sugar consumption leads to insulin resistance, which is a serious health concern usually marked by excess body fat. Besides feeling tired, run-down, and dependent on carbohydrates and sugar, other concerns like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and even cancers can result. However, it is never too late to unhook yourself from the sugar train!
This program will teach you about what foods to avoid and what to replace them with, as well as other lifestyle habits that you can adopt on your way to a healthier, sugarless life. It’s not as scary as it seems; your whole body will thank you!
