Fruits, milk and a lot other foods naturally contain sugar, which means adding excess sugar to your diet isn’t necessary at all. In fact, if you quit eating sugar from other sources than the foods which naturally contain it, you’ll notice that at least 5 positive things will happen with you.
What Happens When You Quit Eating Sugar
Here is what will happen with your body when you quit eating sugar:
1. You’ll Be More Energetic
This might seem ironic, since we tend to eat chocolate, drink caffeinated or energy drinks when we are tired. But our body is built to reach a high energy level naturally, without any extra sugar. More than that, the excess sugar is blocking our body’s ability to keep our energy stores at maximal levels.
2. Your Weight Will Stabilize
By quit eating sugar, you won’t feel hungry and you’re gonna cut down a significant quantity of unneeded calories every day. This means you’re gonna lose weight or at least you’re gonna maintain your current weight.
3. Your Digestion Will Improve
When you quit eating sugar, you cut down those tough-to-digest foods. This enables your intestines to reset their abilities to process the food, and you’re gonna go to the bathroom frequently, which is a sign of a healthy digestion.
4. You’ll Stop Craving Sugar
We all know that sugar begets sugar, right? So after you quit eating sugar, you’ll slowly begin to stop craving foods with sugar in it. While fruits are sweet enough, everything else (a pie, an ice-cream, a can of coke) will taste overly sweet and, finally, you’ll stop craving them.
5. You’ll Have A Healthier Skin
No matter what kind of creams and home remedies you try, you can’t get rid of acne. It sounds familiar? Well, if you tried them all and none worked, maybe it’s time to quit eating sugar. In many cases of acne, sugary foods are the “inside cause”, and cutting the extra sugar intake leads to a healthier and younger skin.
The World Health Organization recommends to consume no more than 5% of your daily calories coming from the sweet stuff. For example, if you eat 2000 calories in a day, only 100 calories should come from your sweets.
Remember that it takes at least a month before a small diet change becomes a healthy habit. But with determination and perseverance you truly can quit eating sugar. It’s not easy, but it’s definitely worth it. Stay healthy!
