4 amazing health benefits you will get if you give up sugar for one month
Nutrition experts revealed 4 amazing health results that will appear on our bodies only 30 days after we give up sugar.
According to what was translated by Al-Arabiya from the “Health Linee” medical website, addiction to sugar or excessive consumption may lead to devastating effects that will be mentioned during the talk about the four benefits that are achieved if you stop eating it.
1- Low cholesterol in the blood
Frequent consumption of foods and beverages that are high in added sugar is detrimental to blood sugar management and may increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Sweetened foods and beverages such as baked goods, soda, candy and energy drinks contain fast absorbing sugars such as high fructose corn syrup.
Diets high in these types of sugar have been linked to higher blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.
2- Improving heart health
Diets high in sugar are also associated with risk factors for heart disease, including high blood pressure, triglycerides and bad cholesterol levels.
Studies have indicated that consuming a lot of added sugar is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and resulting deaths.
Diets that limit added sugar, such as the Paleo diet and whole, plant-based foods, have also been shown to significantly reduce heart disease risk factors such as high triglycerides and LDL cholesterol levels.
3- Reducing body weight
Foods and drinks that are high in added sugar tend to be high in calories but low in filling nutrients like protein and fiber.
For this reason, a diet rich in sugary foods is associated with weight gain, and a high intake of added sugar is associated with a higher fat content.
Cutting out sources of added sugar may help you lose weight, especially when combined with a nutrient-dense diet high in protein and fiber.
4- Oral and dental health
It is well known that sugary foods and drinks are not good for dental health.
Added sugar intake is closely linked to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease in both children and adults, because bacteria in the mouth breaks down sugar and produces acid that can damage your teeth.
Therefore, cutting out added sugar can protect your teeth. However, cutting out sugar for just 30 days is unlikely to have a lasting effect on dental health.
How do you dispense with sugar?
Years ago, Dutchman Sasha Harland recounted his experience of giving up sugar and fast food for thirty days, via a video watched by tens of millions at the time, and he summarized his experience, saying: “It meant a bad mood at the beginning, and more energy at the end.”
