Sugar is even more responsible for excess weight than carbohydrates and fats, so if you consume it in excessive amounts, in particular, foods and drinks loaded with sugars, such as yogurts, sodas, candy, pouch juices, breakfast cereals, salad dressings, you are at an increased risk.
Sugar is also included in mangos, honey, raisins, pure fruit juice, and bananas that are simple carbohydrates.
In the case of a sugar overdose, you may experience signs such as colds, sleepiness, headaches, hyperactivity, yeast infection, consequent fatigue, depression, sinus issues, and mental disorientation. Moreover, sugar may also lead to cancer, particularly breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Namely, as soon as sugar enters the body, the body uses it to increase the energy levels, and the rest is stored as fat. The added sugar in food is not the same as the natural one, and it goes in the intestines, reacts to intestinal bacteria and elevates the blood sugar levels, and thus leads to fat stored in the thighs, waist and hips.
The elimination of sugar is possible, and it will also cause classic withdrawal symptoms of any addiction, such as cravings, fatigue, sadness, queasiness and headaches. The sugar cravings occur when you digest the food, as the brain received the signals that it is no longer hungry and requires something sweet.
