The terrible and unsuspected effects of sugar on the human body. Not only does it gain weight, but it also changes the physiognomy

Sugar is not completely bad for the body, as long as it is consumed in moderation. In fact, it plays an important role in providing energy to the body. The problem arises when we consume too much sugar, especially the added sugar found in juices, sweets, baked goods and processed foods.

“Sugar transforms you! It changes your appearance, not only does it make you gain weight, it makes you store fat, especially in the abdominal area, but it also changes the physiognomy of your face! It gives you a “fluffy” look. In fact, this fluffy look was happening everywhere. Due to water retention that results from the combination: high blood sugar and a lot of insulin. Sugar affects your eyesight (people with diabetes know the consequences best, diabetes being the number one cause of blindness in the world), your kidneys (if you wake up to urinate at night, one cause is high glucose), it ages your skin (glucose denatures collagen) and favors the appearance of acne! Imagine how much your body will appreciate if you give up sugar“, says Dr. Lupașcu Nicoleta.

Of course, no one went blind eating a piece of sugar cake once a week, but the damage caused by excessive sugar consumption occurs over time.

That is probably why they are not even perceived anymore. Just like a drug you take every day, a little, then more and more. Instead, any person feels the effects of sugar release. Just like a detox, from energy levels to mental clarity. Most people understand the dangers of consuming too much sugar. Sweet, in general. Many feel trapped, they would like to give up, but they can't. It is understandable. Sugar is addictive, and a person can become addicted to it. With the same manifestations as any other addiction to alcohol/tobacco/drugs. Knowing this turmoil and challenge, I have two plans for each component involved in the development of addiction: metabolic and emotional“, adds Dr. Lupașcu Nicoleta.
