What actually happens to your body when you stop eating sugar

You all know sugar is bad and yet it is difficult to take your hands off it. I do not blame you for that, sugar tastes delicious, makes you instantly feel good and desserts like cakes, cookies and ice creams just wouldn't be the same without it. Sugar is toxic, addictive and fattening, eating too much of it can lead to a variety of health issues including diabetes, heart disease along with obesity. Even though having sugar in moderation won't necessarily lead you to serious issues, but the problem is that nobody stops at one Oreo or a very small slice of cake. Cutting down on sugar can show immediate positive effects on overall health and wellness. Quitting sugar may seem like a challenge but don't worry, I m here to help. In this article, I m going to tell you what actually happens to your body when you stop eating sugar and hopefully inspire you guys.

You'll lose weight

If you wanna lose weight, there is no need to commit yourself to a whacky diet, all you need to do it to reduce your sugar intake and you will see your weight dropping off. Even though you are not pouring sugar in your diet, the large part of your sugar intake can come from packaged and processed foods. Did you know? one Snicker bar can contain close to 7 teaspoons of sugar and one can of Coke have 8 teaspoons of sugar. It is very easy to consume these foods and feel hungry again. If calories coming from these foods are not burned they will get converted to fat. Just keep an eye on sugar in these foods and you will have to spend less time burning them off in the gym.

You'll sleep better

If you suffer from insomnia or have sleeping troubles, you probably would have blamed stress or your caffeine intake. It could be your sugar intake too that is hindering your sleep. When sugar enters your body it breakdowns into glucose which produces energy and stimulates the mind, making it virtually impossible to power down at bedtime.If you are a kind of person who likes to eat before bedtime just reduce the amount of sugar intake pre-bedtime and you will feel the difference.

You'll age slower

Nobody wants to get older, most of us will be thrown into a fit of hysteria by the tiniest wrinkle on our skin. If you are concerned about premature ageing, before you start spending your hard earned money on anti-ageing creams consider reducing your sugar intake. Diets high in sugar can cause premature ageing, this can be traced down to a chemical process called glycation which occurs when the person's blood sugar level goes significantly high.

You'll have a better immune system

If you are one of those people who frequently get sick, you might want to try scaling your sugar intake. The power of immune systems depends on the number and effectiveness of its cells, which fights off with any potentially harmful or foreign bacteria. Excessive sugar intake stuns those cells and leaves them lying dormant for almost 24 hours after the sugar was consumed. If you keep on ingesting sugar day after day your immune system will not have the chance to recover fully and you will be more susceptible to diseases.

You'll have a better smile

Eating lots of sugary foods can increase your chances of having tooth decay and other dental problems. Sugar provides a source of food for the bacteria in the mouth and reproduces more quickly resulting in terrible breath. By choosing foods and drinks low in sugar, you can maintain good oral health and save a lot of money with the dentist.

You don't have to completely give up sugar to maintain a healthy weight as long as you balance it with the rest of your diet you will not experience any adverse effects. All you need to do is to find the right way  to balance with the rest of your diet

Challenge yourself with no sugar diet for a week and see the effects yourself
