Chris said:So what is the problem with sugar then?
Khya Gwen said:Excessive sugar causes not only weight gain but also fluid retention, high cholesterol, mood swings, mental fogginess, decreased energy and insulin resistance.
Khya Gwen said:You may not consider the amount of sugar you eat to be excessive. You might be surprised how much sugar you consume though, if you kept a record of what you ate for a week and looked at the stats.
Chris said:I recently gave up sugar and alcohol for the month of January as, like many other people, I had been overdoing it a bit before Christmas. I have eaten too much sugar my whole life so going off sugar was particularly scary for me.
Chris said:Since giving up sugar I noticed after one week I had razor sharp,clear thinking,immense levels of energy,stable moods and had lost weight. I am also not craving sweet foods at all, and do not feel as though I am missing out.
Khya Gwen said:Sugar needs to be kept as a treat,not for every day. Once you start having something every day it easily becomes a problem. You still want to live and enjoy food, but you also want to be healthy and active as well.
