Sudden sugar spikes in the body can lead to mood swings. Giving up sweets can be both a good decision and a difficult one for everyone.
According to nutritionists, sweet abuse harms teeth and leads to early aging. Doctors and experts told us what will happen to your body if you don’t get sugar for a month.
If you decide to give up sugar completely, you will have to eliminate from your diet all foods that have even a slightly sweet taste. This includes healthy fruits and berries. You don’t have to take such drastic measures, but you do need to cut out additional sugar (in coffee, and tea), desserts, and refined sugar-containing foods.
Your mood will improve. American scientists have shown that women who eat foods with a high glycemic index are more prone to depression. In addition, sudden surges in sugar in the body can lead to mood swings – after a surge of euphoria from sweets, a decline inevitably follows.
You will get colds less often. It has been proven that regular excess blood sugar causes chronic inflammation. As a result, the chances of catching a cold increase. And in some cases, giving up sugar can help alleviate allergies and asthma.
Sleep will improve. Eating sugar (especially at bedtime) can lead to an additional release of stress hormones, which you definitely don’t need if you want to get enough sleep.
