Sugar is delicious but in copious amounts it can be really bad for our health. You won’t look at it the same way once you learn how it impacts the body.
There are red flags which our body sends us that it’s time to reduce the consumption of sugar and here are six of them:
Lack of energy and tiredness
A constant feeling of fatigue or tiredness is one of the signs that you got too much sugar in the diet. Even though these foods can give you carbohydrate boost and led a feeling of increased energy, this is just temporary. If you feel tired all the time you have to check your diet to see if you drink or eat too much sugar.
Chances that you have become a sugar addict are huge if you find yourself craving the sugary snack’s sweet flavor on a daily basis. The consumption of sugar can make a sugar craving’s chain reaction as it is so addictive. If you can’t bear a moment without carbs, you could be in throes of a deep addiction of sugar.
Frequent Flu and Cold
If you fall ill more often than usually it can be caused by having too much sugar in the diet. If every virus finds you and makes you sick, it can be because of the penchant for sugary treats. Consuming too much sugar can weaken the immune system and make the natural ability of the body to fight off flu, colds, viruses and chronic disease weaker.
The brain gets foggy (especially after meals)
The fog is a symptom for low blood sugar. When you consume too much sugar, the levels of blood sugar rise and fall rapidly instead of doing it gradually. The poor control of blood sugar is a major risk for impairment and cognitive issues.
