With all the bad publicity about sugar, is it really that horrible at the end?
Scare tactics should never be used as motivational tool. We much rather believe in the power of knowledge and think that if people are better informed, they would always make the right decision. That is why, we will not get into all the statistics that reveal the relationship between sugar and a series of the most severe diseases, but will rather give you a few simple facts about sugar:
- Brings 0 nutrients, hence it is not needed in our diet.
- Interferes with the hormones that regulate hunger and satiety.
- Harms metabolism, leading to increase in insulin and fat storage.
- It is addictive (by the release of dopamine when we consume it).
