Danger of Sweets and How to Cut it Out

Just because you rarely eat chocolates or put sugar on your coffee doesn’t mean you are not eating too much sugar.

But it's so tasty and sweet!Sugar has glucose and fructose that promote insulin production in the pancreas, which makes cells use glucose as energy. If you eat too many sweets, insulin turns the extra glucose into fats making you gain more weight. This can lead to heart disease or type 2 diabetes.

Fructose, on the other hand, is processed in our liver. If you take in too many sweets, the liver won’t be able to metabolize all the fructose properly. This would lead to cardiovascular disease, liver problems, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.

Some experts argue that sugar is not dangerous as long as it is not eaten in excess. The problem is, everyone is unknowingly eating more sugar than they are supposed to.

Most Americans don’t have an idea that they are consuming an average of 100 pounds of sugar a year. This does not come from table sugar, but from sweeteners that are added in almost every packaged food they eat.

And the more sugar a person takes in, the more he or she needs to be satisfied.

So, how do you cut of the sweet temptations? Read on:

  • Eat whole foods to avoid added sugar in processed foods. Eat fruits instead of crackers.
  • You may not see sugar in the label of the processed foods you buy, so watch out for ingredients such a sucrose, honey, extrose, maltose, maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, agave nectar, fruit juice concentrate, and evaporated cane juice.
  • Manufacturers rank the ingredients by how much of it is in the product. The higher it is in the ranking, the more of that is in the product. If sugar like substance is close to the top, avoid it.
  • Avoid “low sugar” and “lightly sweetened” products. Also, avoid artificial sweeteners.
  • Drink water over cool coffee drinks, bottled tea or soda, which are basically liquid candy.
  • Gradually let your tongue get used to less sweeter foods.
  • Eat meals regularly at the proper time and proper amount.
  • Finally, eat fruits for dessert.
