3 Reasons to Give Up Sugar

By Virginia Laird

When it comes to sweets, I am generally the first in line waiting to fill my plate. However, health and wellness experts suggest that limiting them (or cutting them out) is the best choice when considering your health. These experts suggest that those who struggle to cut the sugar habit should limit their consumption to one sweet treat each week. While this may sound like something impossible, there is plenty of research to suggest that sugar can be hard on the body. A few reasons these experts recommend cutting back on your sugar intake include:

  • Consuming too much sugar can lead to weight gain
  • Too much sugar can contribute to diabetes
  • Sugar consumption be hard on your body

Consuming Too Much Sugar Can Lead to Weight Gain

Health and wellness experts advise that one of the leading causes of weight gain and other health issues related to weight gain is the consumption of sugar. Research suggests that those who limit their sugar consumption have more success controlling weight. Health and wellness experts also indicate that too much weight gain can lead to a host of health issues, some of which can be detrimental to long-term health.

Too Much Sugar Can Contribute to Diabetes

Each year, more individuals are diagnosed with diabetes. This has become a serious concern among health and wellness professionals. Many are unaware of the serious effects diabetes can have on overall wellness. It is imperative to know the implications of this disease can be debilitating, and in some cases fatal. While controlling sugar consumption alone cannot resolve all issues with diabetes, watching your consumption can be helpful in managing this disease.

Sugar Consumption Can Be Hard on Your Body

There is research to suggest that sugar is an addictive substance. This is why many find it difficult to shut out of their life. Health and wellness experts admit that any substance which can lead to addiction can prove to be trouble for the body. Cutting sugar out too quickly can lead to headaches and other symptoms of withdrawal. However, consuming sugar endlessly can lead to disease, weight gain, heart issues, much more. Rather than putting your body through the wringer, it is time to begin eliminating some of your sugar consumption.

Now is the time to begin putting your overall health and wellness first. Start limiting your consumption of all things sweet right away.
