Endocrinologist Robert Lustig, speaking at the University of California, stated that sugar contributes to a number of health problems. This product impairs metabolism and negatively affects the state of the cardiovascular system. But that’s not all. There are studies showing that sugar is addictive.
Much more important is the fact that regular consumption of sugar harms the entire body, all its systems. And rejection of sweets in any case will have a positive effect on health.
What happens after you eliminate sugar from your diet?
- The state of blood vessels and heart will improve… According to a 2014 study, those who get 17-21% of their calories from added sugar are nearly 40 percent more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than people who have 8 percent of their calories. This phenomenon is explained by the fact that this product increases triglyceride levels.
- Weight and metabolism will return to normal… If too much sugar enters the body, then the cells cease to react in any way to the insulin produced. This can lead to type 2 diabetes. Another substance that can have a negative effect on the body is fructose. Scientific studies show that a person who eats sugar on a regular basis consumes more calories per day. In addition, both substances are capable of provoking weight gain.
