I managed to feel all this from personal experience. Try it and you.
First of all, it is necessary to bring some clarity to what I mean by the words “elimination of sugar from the diet.” Of course, it is impossible to completely abandon all sweets: sugar is part of so many products that it would be necessary to come up with a special diet, which, I suspect, would not be very healthy.
But trying to follow WHO recommendations call on countries to reduce sugar intake by adults and children of WHO, who call for limiting sugar intake so that it makes no more than 5% of total calories per day. To do this, it is enough to stop consuming sugar with drinks, abandon soda and limit the amount of confectionery. And this is what will happen to you when you do this.
- You will become more healthy and energetic.
Many people know that sugar is a source of glucose, which the body needs to replenish energy. With a low level of sugar in the blood, a person feels tired, becomes inhibited, and may even lose consciousness. But no less dangerous is the high level of sugar in human blood, which is observed in almost all sweet tooth. This can cause serious metabolic disorders.
- Your weight is stabilizing
Immediately after you limit your intake of sweets, you will begin to lose weight. And the point here is not only that sugar is a source of calories in itself. It’s just that it most often is a part of high-calorie dishes: pastries, confectionery, fast food, dairy desserts, and so on. By limiting their consumption, you will easily and naturally get rid of extra pounds.
- Your intestines will work normally
While your brain enjoys another sweet cake, the gastrointestinal tract has to be blown away for everything. After all, the breakdown of sugar occurs precisely in the intestine, and its excess disrupts the functioning of the enzymes of the stomach, intestines, and pancreas. If you refuse sweets and replace them with foods that have high fiber content, you will be surprised to find that your intestines began to work literally like a Swiss watch.
- You will cease to constantly want to eat “something sweet”
The mechanism of functioning of sugar addiction is no different from the drug. You eat candy – your brain enjoys – you reach for the next. And so on, as long as there is something sweet in your reach. The good news is that you can still break this circle. As soon as you change your diet, pay attention that you want less and less sweet, and very soon you will be surprised to look at all these strange people around who absorb mountains of sweets.
- You will learn the true taste of products
Do you carefully select the gourmet tea, and then put a few tablespoons of sugar in a cup? Do you consider yourself a connoisseur of coffee, but you can’t drink it without sweets? If you answer in the affirmative to these and similar questions, then I hasten to inform you that, unfortunately, you do not know the real taste of these excellent drinks. As well as many other products that for some reason it is customary to sprinkle a fair amount of sugar. Yes, the first time may be unusual, but only two weeks will pass, no more, and you will remember your past “sweet” life as a terrible dream.
Have you tried to give up sugar? And how did it happen?
