1. Sweets Impair Your Ability to Synthesize Nutrients.
Sugar counteracts the amount of minerals that your body stores and the rate at which it can absorb new minerals.
There are studies that show how sugar affects vitamin D deficiencies, calcium stores, magnesium depletion, chromium absorption, and elevated glucose restricting.
The solution: Combat this by upping your nutrient intake.
Take additional vitamins, eat more nutrient dense vegetables, and drink some green juices (without fruit) to restore what’s been lost.
Also drink some trace minerals by ConcenTrace - they work like magic.
2. Sweets Cause Inflammation.
The two main ingredients in sweets are refined carbohydrates and sugar.
These are two of the biggest causes of elevated inflammation in our bodies.
A study of 29 healthy people found that by consuming 40 grams of added sugar per day lead to increased inflammatory markers, insulin resistance, and LDL cholesterol.
The solution: Replace added sugars with natural sugars like honey. Natural sugars have not been linked to inflammation and many foods with natural sugars are anti-inflammatory. You should also consume anti-inflammatory foods like Turmeric and olive oil.
3. Sweets Make You Hungrier.
Due to the fast absorption of fructose from sugar and carbs in sweets your blood sugar to rises for a short period of time.
Shortly after your blood sugar levels drop and your hunger hormone leptin spikes dramatically.
This leaves you hungry again wanting either more sweets or another meal.
The solution: You can avoid this by eating sweets with less sugar and more fat.
By combining these the fat in your dessert will allow your body to absorb the sugar at a much slower rate reducing any kind of spike.
The additional fat in your dessert will also fill you up and satiate you rather than make you hungry for more.
