Too much sugar may lead to impaired glucose and insulin function which can lead to more serious issues like diabetes, general weight gain, and an increase in cholesterol and triglycerides. Sugar wreaks havoc on our bodies. It suppresses our immune system, triggers mood disorders, and amplifies pain and inflammation.
Refined sugar contains no fiber, no minerals, no protein, no healthy fats, no enzymes, only rapidly digested and empty calories. The consumption of sugar actually pulls minerals from the body during digestion, which forces the body to compromise its nutrients and minerals in order to digest the sugars.
Sugar cravings are also part of a cause and effect mechanism. Blood-sugar dips, insatiable hunger, moodiness, and lethargy are all symptoms of “sugar addiction.” If you’re experiencing intense sugar cravings, it’s important to determine the root cause and any external factors to break the cycle of addiction.
The good news: to stop sugar cravings you don’t need to make any drastic diet changes. Cutting out sugar starts with awareness, preventative measures, and simple substitutes. Creating consciousness around how added sugars act in the body will help you recognize the symptoms of sugar cravings and treat them as such.
By killing cravings and consuming less sugar, you’ll strengthen your immune system and regain lost energy that has previously been wasted on sugar.
