Check out these health benefits of quitting sugar

Cutting sugar from your diet may help protect against chronic disease development and boost your overall health. If you are used to regularly eating sugary foods such as cake, ice cream, sweetened breakfast cereal, candies, cookies and regular intake of soft sugary drinks.

Quitting sugar is good for your health in so many way. Here are a few reasons why;

1) Better mood- studies show that a high-sugar diet can lead to anxiety and depression due to rapid rises in adrenaline levels.

2) Cearer skin- too much sugar can lead to pimples, wrinkles and conditions like psoriasis.

3) Reduce cancer risks- sugar consumption has been linked to cancer in many forms including breast, ovarian, prostate and lungs.

4) Stronger immune system - sugar weakens your immune system against viruses and infectious diseases by decreasing the fighting strength of white blood cells.

5) Weight loss- many “low fat” foods contain hidden sugar. When you just eat real foods( even full- fat), you may find that you actually lose weight. Most people have been battling with being overweight and just don’t understand why their weight isn’t reducing.

6) More energy- sugar gives you a quick burst of energy but blood sugar crashes will leave you more exhausted than ever.
