We all crave for a sugar binge; who doesn’t like maintaining their taste buds with a donut or ice creams or say chocolate for that matter. However, as a matter of fact our body receives all the sugar that it needs from the foods that we eat, say for e.g. milk, fruits, nuts, vegetables etc. From the nutrition point of view our body does not require any additional sugar intake. All the excessive sugar that we consume build up in the body and are stored in the body ultimately as fat. Higher the amount of sugar in our blood higher is the amount of insulin which is required to break it down in form of energy; thus the body needs to work extra; this might result in diabetes. Clearly we know that excessive sugar is not healthy for our bodies.
See Below The Typical Signs Which Show That You Are Eating Too Much Sugar:
1. Appearance Of Dental Caries And Cavities
Sugar rich foods tend to stick and accumulate in the teeth and molars. Regular consumption of sugar rich foods and its regular accumulation causes the decay and damage of teeth. This results in development of dental caries and cavities; if left unattended it might become severe and cavities go on increasing. The main causative factor of dental caries is the acid release from the sugary foods. Thus such foods must be avoided.
2. Excessive Weight Gain And Obesity
Sugar rich foods are rich in calories. Basically when you eat such foods there is build-up of sugar in our blood which ultimately gets converted into fat (source of energy). This results in excessive weight gain which could result in the person becoming overweight or even obese. Being overweight or obese is in itself a root cause for many disease and body troubles and thus sugary foods must be avoided or consumed in moderation.
3. Insulin Resistance And Diabetes
There is a build-up of sugar in our blood post consumption of sugar rich food items. This sugar is then acted upon by insulin which is released from our pancreas which converts the sugar into energy. As a result of excessive sugar, the pancreas need to work more to meet the needs; this results in fatigue of the pancreatic cells ultimately leading to insulin resistance and diabetes. Sometimes due to the excessive pancreatic fatigue, there is development of pancreatic cancer which is observed in studies. Therefore, a check must be kept always on the amount of sugar intake.
4. Liver Damage
Liver plays a vital role in converting blood sugar into energy. When we eat excessive sugar, the work done by liver increases many-fold. As a result, there is damage of liver and if not controlled, it could also result in severe liver damage and even liver failure.
5. Heart Disease And Hypertension
Excessive sugar intake causes increase in weight or even obesity; it also is a causative factor of diabetes and insulin resistance. Obesity itself is a major cause of heart related disorders. These factors are a major trigger of several heart diseases such as hypertension, heart failure, stroke etc. Therefore, it is very important to control the daily sugar intake.
6. Cognitive Decline Due To Sugar Rush
Excessive blood sugar reaches the brain cells along with the blood and damage the neurons are the functional units of our brain. When you consume high levels of sugar on a daily basis, the body is in a state of sugar rush. This on a chronic basis could damage the brain cells and cause mental confusion. This could also be accompanied with delirium, a state of confusion as well as cognitive decline.
7. Nutritional Imbalance
Sugar rich food items are rich in calories and therefore when you consume them in high quantities they tend to fill up your stomach. This means you feel full just by eating the sugary unhealthy foods and there is no desire left to eat. Thus the overall body nutrition is affected resulting into nutritional imbalance as the body doesn’t receive its daily dose of necessary nutrients. This state could further result in number of disease states as well as compromised immunity.Thus feeling weak or dull due to inadequate nutrition supply is one main sign that your sugar consumption is very high. Nutritional imbalance also causes premature ageing which again is a sign of excessive sugar intake.
8. Food Addiction
Sugar rich foods tend to develop an addiction which forces the mind to demand for sugar frequently. As a result, there is strong craving for such foods and if not consumed the body could start giving out withdrawal signs such as throbbing headache or uneasiness.
