The main ingredient to blame for our obesity and overweight is sugar, alongside with carbohydrates and fats and we are not talking about a moderate intake of sugar, because that amount of sugar is not a threat to the human body. Many people around the world don’t even know that they are consuming high amounts of sugar through many products, which are sold in the local supermarkets such as: sodas, cereals, drinks, salad dressings, yogurts and candies, etc. Well, these types of food products can often lead to excessive sugar amounts in your body. Simple carbohydrates are found in foods, such as: honey, raisins, pure fruit juices, mangoes and bananas.

Our bodies are built to make a quick use of the simple carbohydrates, and it usually uses them as an energy source. This body process increases the blood sugar levels, which we all know has bad effects on our health. And, even worse, excessive amounts of sugar create problems in the nutritional intake for the body. There are many bad side effects and symptoms of overconsumption of sugar, and these are the most common ones: hyperactivity, consequent fatigue, yeast infections, depressive moods, headaches, colds or sinus problems, sleepiness, disorientation, etc. We can also say that chronic sugar overload can increase the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease and even breast cancer.

Weight Gain vs. Sugar Consumption?

Well, you probably know this process, but let me say this one more time for those you don’t know it. So, this is how it goes – when we consume high amounts of sugar, our body converts the needed amount of sugar into energy. But, here comes the bad part – our body stores the remaining part as body fat. And, even worse is that the added sugars in many food products don’t have the same effect on metabolism like the natural sugars. When they are consumed by the human body, they arrive in the bowel and they can cause bowel bacteria which will increase the blood sugar levels. This type of sugar is also converted to fat! We’ve all seen a person addicted to sugar. When someone consumes high amounts of sugar, his body continues to store unnecessary sugar to fat in the hips, waist, and thighs and in his face.

Say NO to Sugar!

Quit Sugar – well, that’s easy to say, but very difficult to do, right? The medical experts think that it’s almost impossible to stop or quit sugar addiction if you don’t quit it altogether. Some people try to eliminate sugar from their diet, but they experience symptoms, such as: sadness, headaches, queasiness, fatigue and cravings. If some person is addicted to sugar, these symptoms occur after this person had a meal. His body is experiencing cravings for sugar and the body is telling your brain that it is hungry again. In most cases, person who is addicted to sugar will eat something sweet again. And, here comes the worst part. When that person satisfies his sugar cravings with that cookie, these symptoms – sadness, headaches and other feelings will disappear and he or she will feel much better. Remember, if you or any other person wants to give up sugar, you all must abstain from it altogether
