Lose Weight, Feel Better –Sugar Detox
Another source of sugar is simple carbohydrates. Foods like honey, pure fruit juices, raisins, mangoes and bananas are rich in simple carbohydrates.
We usually think of these as healthy, but the body quickly uses simple carbohydrates for energy, causing a spike in blood sugar that can have adverse health effects.
An over consumption of sugar also hampers the body’s nutritional intake.
Symptoms of a sugar overdose may include bouts of hyperactivity and consequent fatigue (as the sugar reserve crashes), yeast infections, depression, headaches, colds or sinus problems, mental disorientation and sleepiness.
Chronic sugar overload may also increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease, and promote the progression of cancer, especially breast cancer.
