Lose Weight, Feel Better –Sugar Detox In Just 3 Days!

We all know that the main ingredient for our obesity and overweight is sugar, alongside with carbohydrates and fats.

While moderate sugar consumption poses no health risk, the average person consumes high quantities of sugar maybe without even knowing it.

There are so many foods and drinks that contain added sugars, like sodas, breakfast cereal, pouch juices, salad dressings, yogurts and of course candy, which contain a large amount of sugar and puts our body in overload. But there are also some foods that contain sugar naturally like honey, raisins, pure fruit juices, mangoes and bananas  which are simple carbohydrates.

An overconsumption of sugar 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 side effects and symptoms of overconsumption of sugar, such as: 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.

When we consume high amounts of sugar, our body converts the needed amount of sugar into energy. But, the bad part is that 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 such as the natural sugars. When we consume it, 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. When a  person addicted to his body continues to store unnecessary sugar to fat in the hips, waist, and thighs and in his face.

We can also say that is almost impossible to stop or quit sugar addiction if you don not quit it altogether.
