Sugar - Ins & Outs.

If you are one of the many people who have tried to cut back on sugar, you know how diffficult it can be. When we eat sugar, an over-stimulation of the reward centers causes us to become addicted to it. Here are some truths about sugar & its negative effects:-

  • When we eat foods which are high in sugar, the reward centers of the brain are activated and large amount of dopamine is released which makes us eating sugar feel so good.

  • Over time and with an over-stimulation of those reward centres, we develop an addiction to sugar because it simply makes us feel good when we eat it.

  • Due to the powerful effects sugar has on the brain, it can be thought of like actual drugs like heroin and cocaine do.

  • Women should not have more than six teaspoons of sugar per day and men nine teaspoons.

  • Added sugar is also a poison. It has no nutritional value and lacks any essential proteins, minerals and vitamins.

  • Added sugar is one of the worst and most toxic ingredients in our diet and can have harmful effects on our metabolism and contribute to the developments of numerous serious health conditions and diseases.

  • Too much sugar is harmful to the body and promotes inflammation and diseases & might even lead to breast cancer.

  • Sugar is hidden in so many of the foods we consume every day, found under different names like fructose, lactose, sucrose, maltose, glucose, and dextrose. High fructose can be found in frozen dinners, some vegetables, peanut butter, pickles, salad dressing, soup & canned fruits.

  • To have control over sugar, eat minimum amount and opt for natural alternatives. It is better to get your sugar fix from naturally sweet fruits as opposed to processed foods. Fruits are still high on sugar, so better not to have over limit.
