Here’s What Happens To Your Body When You Go 10 Days Without Sugar
It has become increasingly common knowledge lately that sugar are leading to such prevalent and serious illnesses as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. The obesity epidemic has only worsened since food manufacturers started replacing fats with sugar in all our favorite products.
Thankfully the damage caused by sugars can be easily prevented and even reversed. When you are on a diet it will take months to show some results, cutting back sugar intake can show immediate, positive effects on weight loss and overall health.
Without Sugar 10 Days
Researchers from the University of California, in only 10 days managed to drastically reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes on children. They were able to decrease triglyceride levels by 33 points on average, and the bad cholesterol by 5 points and as well as the diastolic blood pressure.
Important things to know: not all calories are created equally. 100 calories of sugar is not the same as 100 calories of spinach. Unfortunately this is not what food companies would like you to believe. We shouldn’t necessarily even be focusing on counting calories; we should be focusing on the ingredients in our food. Sugar may be advertised as “fat free,” however this is a just a marketing ploy.Calories from the sugars are the worst one because they are converted to fat in the liver, raise insulin resistance and increase the risk for diabetes and heart disease.
Using artificial sweeteners will not do anything good, as a matter of fact it can do things worse. Many thinks that aspartame is just another FDA-approved sugar alternative that is safe to use, otherwise it wouldn’t get on the market. However the reality about aspartame is much more sinister, including how the chemical sweetener gained approval.
