Sugar is bad. It is more addictive than cocaine and smoking. But how to spot and avoid sugar in your daily life? Is this really possible? The answer to that would be YES! There are certain foods and beverages that, despite their tasty flavor, they come with large amounts of sugar which may affect our long-term health. Most of the time, the sugar turns to be the main responsible of weight gain, chronic diseases, mood swings, among others.
You may think this is something hard to achieve. I mean, how could you detect when a particular food or drink is actually unhealthy? How come this is so important to your long term health? As said above, sugar is the worst enemy when it comes to a healthy diet. It affects our health making us vulnerable to develop serious health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, tooth decay, fatigue and others chronic illnesses. An unstable blood sugar may also lead to cravings and strong headaches, which makes you unproductive, unhealthy and of course, unhappy.
Sugar comes in various presentations. A team of researchers at the University of North Carolina conducted a detailed study and found that 68 percent of processed foods and beverageshad added sugar. Not only sweet foods but also many sauces, soups, fruit juices and even meat products had added sugar.
