Sugar, being very much favorite to us, put its existence in everywhere. It is present naturally in fruits and vegetable, hidden in fruit-flavored drinks, chocolate bars, breakfast cereals, wholemeal bread, soups, canned fruit juice, jam, jelly, sauce, candy, sugary snacks, carbonated drink, cake, cookies, restaurants, school menus, everywhere. Dr. Leo Galland, a writer on children’s health, gave his advice that “My first line advice to parents is to keep their children away from sugary cereals, pancakes or waffles with syrup, soft drinks, candy, cake, cookies, doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and chocolate. Every ounce of reduction helps. Sugar alone does not cause hyperactivity, but it does reduce the nutritional quality of the diet and may aggravate other food intolerances.” As our test buds become more excited if sugar is present in the food, so maker add more sugar to the food product which leads to several health-related problems.
So we should make a goal to consume not more than 40 gm sugar per day and try to have it from natural sources. Refined and processed sugar multiply its negative impact on our health. While exercises a great antidote for sugar cravings. Because when we exercise, our body breaks down glycogen and releases glucose molecule into the bloodstream, which effectively gives us a sugar boost.
As per Dr. Nancy Appleton, Ph.D. “The bottom line is that sugar upsets the body chemistry and suppress the immune system. Once the immune system becomes suppressed, the door is opened to infectious and degenerative disease. The stronger immune system the easier it is for the body to fight infectious and degenerative diseases.” So eat less sugar and get a healthy life ahead. Even though if you want to eat sugar always prefer to have it from natural sources and say a big no to the processed and refined sugar.
