Let’s clear up any confusion on this: Sugar is BAD!
When you are trying to wade through all the conflicting information about what “diet” is right for you there is one simple truth to remember — White refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup are bad, but why is sugar bad for you?
Once you know this and start to operate from this point of view some of the other diet confusions will be easier down the road.
Make a plan to decrease your white sugar consumption. And set a future goal to eliminate it totally. The reasons to do this are as numerous as the health facts about sugar.
Here are nine bad facts about sugar:
- Sugar causes inflammation.
- Sugar creates bowel problems.
- Sugar feeds immune challenges, makes you more likely to get sick and stay sick longer.
- Sugar contributes to depression and anxiety.
- Sugar causes cardiovascular disease.
- Sugar makes you gain weight.
- Sugar raises cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Sugar consumption can lead to cancer.
- Sugar is highly addictive. Sugar is in the majority of processed foods. So, many people find the thought of stopping sugar impossible.
