In France, sugar statistics are scary.
Each French person consumes 110 sugar cubes per week!
Which gives us 35 kg of sugar per year. Wow!
But then:why do we eat so many of them?
First, because they are everywhere!
It is difficult to avoid, as it is the most common additive.
Second, because sugar makes us totally addicted.
Besides, whether we realize it or not, we are all more or less addicts.
Stopping eating it is not easy... but it is possible!
The proof, I launched this challenge for 1 month and I succeeded!
Here are 15 things that happened to me when I stopped eating it for 1 month . Watch:
Sugar calls for sugar.
Every time you eat it, insulin kicks in.
Insulin is what lowers your blood sugar.
This puts your body in a situation of hypoglycemia:
That is, an abnormal drop in sugar in your blood.
And this is where the vicious circle begins...
Because of this hypoglycemia, you want to eat even more sugar .
But by removing it from my diet, I lost the desire to eat it in just a few days.
If you quit sugar, you will have a lot less hungry.
Does that seem unlikely to you?
And yet, if you're always hungry, it's because of him!
If you stop eating it, you stabilize the level of sugar in your blood (glycemia).
And it allows your body to better nourish its cells.
Indeed, sugar is "toxic" to the body.
When you eat it, your body rejects it:this is called insulin resistance .
The body blocks insulin because it is what regulates the sugar level in your blood.
Essentially, your body is trying to limit the damage by controlling blood sugar inside the cells.
Yes, because your body knows very well that sugar is bad for your health.
And he tries somehow to protect you.
Fortunately, if you give up sugar, everything regulates itself!
Without it, your body can finally absorb energy from food.
And in addition, it absorbs all the other nutrients much better!
Because insulin resistance also affects nutrients, minerals and vitamins.
This is one of its main functions.
Do you tend to be in a bad mood?
So, stop the sugar, and you will be less stressed and more serene .
Anyway, that's what happened to me who is used to being grumpy...
My friends told me that I became a nicer person.
And that, I can tell you, is a good thing.
But that's not all...
It also allowed me to better focus on my projects.
