Sugar is very tempting and highly addictive. All these sugary stuff are all so delicious but the bad news is that they have many health effects, the most obvious being major weight gain.
Kicking off the habit is not an easy task (trust me, I’ve tried) but if you are able to hack it, you will be surprised at the amazing body benefits it results to.
Here are some of them:
Say goodbye to belly fat
Belly fat is not only stubborn and hard to get rid off but also dangerous as It makes you prone to heart disease and diabetes. According to Healthline, data from a 2016 study conducted on 1,000 participants indicated that the level of visceral fat (the dangerous fat that surrounds your organs) was more common in people who consumed drinks high in sugar.
Say hello to smooth anti-aging skin
Many people are looking for foods and cosmetics to help them look younger. Well how about cutting off processed sugar? Well, according to Reader’s Digest, sugar and wrinkles are closely linked because sugar causes glycation, which deforms the collagen and elastin in our skin—two properties that we need in order for our skin to remain supple.
You will have more energy
Sugar Rush makes you feel energized but once it’s out of your system, you crush. Eliminate sugar from your diet and opt for items that are low in sugar yet high in protein and/or fat. This way, you’ll avoid that rise and crash effect that sugar causes.
You’ll lower your risk of obesity
Sugar consumption is one of the highest causes of obesity. Many of the soft drinks that we consume contain added sugar that your body doesn’t necessarily need. These sugars contain calories that once absorbed in your body end up as dangerous fat around your mid-section.
You’ll sleep better
Research shows that people suffering from blood sugar issues reportedly have an increased risk of insomnia.
