Sugar makes you fat! Your body cannot process too much of it, so it gets stored as fat. Plus it also makes fat-burning even harder, so if you're eating sugar every day, all the gym sessions in the world won't shift that excess weight.
It's addictive - once you start eating it, it's very hard to stop. This is why you very rarely find a packet of half finished biscuits or chocolate.
Sugar leaches your body of vitamin B, any mental, physical or emotional stress drains vitamin B from your body - so does sugar - which causes exhaustion. Sugar lowers energy levels, depletes vitamin and mineral stores in the body which may impact on your immune system.
There could be pages of reasons why you should cut processed sugar from your diet, I'm sure you've heard many of them!
In this film, he has to consume 40 teaspoons of sugar a day for a month. He consumes this through so called 'health products' such as Just Right, Up and Go, fresh orange juice, muesli bars etc, no junk food or fizzy drinks allowed. His health declines rapidly and he gains 8kg. It's a really interesting watch, I suggest you get it and watch it!
Everything in moderation - a treat sometimes is perfectly fine - but these so called super health products and 'Iron man food' cereals etc are FULL of it so don't eat it! And don't give it to your kids! Low fat products, sauces etc, packet mixes, all full of it. And this is without the junk, so it's no wonder we are sicker and fatter than ever! Look after yourself, look after your children and make the change x
