Why Sugar is KILLING you… You can’t just “burn off” sugar…
As I walk around a carnival or any event, I can’t help but watch all the people indulging in sweets. From cotton candy, funnel cakes, donuts, candy you name it – we are surrounded by sweets. Now, I have to say I am guilty of eating sweets, however since reading many article about how bad sugar is for your body and how sick I get when consuming sweets, it has made me think twice before grabbing that delicious perfectly decorated cupcake or cookie. As a person with two autoimmune disorders any sweet instantly triggers my symptoms causing severe pain in my body. Further more it makes me cringe watching someone eat sweets and drink a soda. Uggg, I just don’t know how someone can do stomach that.
I’m sure you have heard many health experts talk about how bad sugar is for you, but most people don’t truly understand WHY it’s so bad…
In fact, most people falsely think that if they eat sugar, they can just exercise a little bit harder that day or the next day so they can “burn it off”… Unfortunately, that kind of thinking will lead you to an early grave and possibly many diseases.
It’s not as simple as just “burning off sugar” — It’s about what sugar does internally to the cells of your body, and how sugar gums up your internal workings, causing disease such as autoimmune, obesity and many learning disorders in children.
If you knew exactly why sugar is so bad for you and exactly what it does to your cells in your body, I promise that you would think twice about eating that piece of cake, candy, sugary soft drink, fruit juice, or ice cream, or feeding them to your children.
I’m not exaggerating here, so pay close attention…
There has been a rise in sugar consumption since the 1900 to the year 2010 and since then sugar consumption has gone up way higher. You see it all around us, just pay attention sometime when you go out to a public place where there is food. You should also be aware of the rise in obesity and processed food consumption which is another that can kill you as well. It’s scary it’s it ? And yet we wonder why we are in bad shape.
Here are just a few of the reasons why sugar is killing you…
Wheat, sugar also causes extreme fluctuations in your blood sugar, and excess blood sugar causes Glycation inside your body, which accelerates the rate of aging of your organs, skin, arteries, and joints. Arthritis, weight gain, insulin resistance, cavities and liver failure are just a few of the many ways sugar can affect your body.
Sugar also raises your triglycerides to dangerous levels, which can lead you to heart disease.
If you need even MORE reasons why sugar will kill you, sugar also slows down your white blood cells, making infection more likely, and even allowing CANCER cells a better chance to form in your body. Ask a person who has had cancer and they will tell you, there doctor told them not to consume sugar. Just remember cancer thrives on sugar.
Are you scared yet!
Of course, you already know that sugar makes you gain weight fast and gives you excess calories without any beneficial nutrients whatsoever. None, zero nutrients, just empty calories and a lot of them for that matter. Sugar is nothing but an addiction, it’s no different then an addiction to drugs.
So by now most of you are freaking out thinking oh my gosh, I can’t eat a cookie. By all means we all are not perfect and yes, we crave that little piece of cake. What I am saying here is pay attention to your sugar intake. The less you eat the better off you’ll be. Instead of grabbing for that container of sugar, think about replacing it with raw organic honey or raw sugar cane. It’s a much better and healthier choice in the long run. Or better yet eat fruits with natural sugars if you have the sweet tooth coming on.
Your body will love you after awhile and down the road you’ll be so thankful that you made the right choice to eliminate sugar as much as you can from your diet.
