Cutting Out Sugar Can Improve Your Health In 2 Weeks
Reducing or eliminating sugar can significantly improve obesity, fatty liver and type 2 diabetes in only 2 weeks. These findings come from a study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
We all know sugar isn’t good for us, but it’s so hard to stop eating it because it tastes so good. What if you knew the health benefits of quitting sugar begin in only 2 weeks? Would that motivate you to get rid of it from your diet?
When consumed in excess, glucose and fructose can cause significant health problems. Fructose accelerates the conversion of sugar into fat. When you consume glucose, 20 percent is metabolized in your liver and 80 percent throughout the rest of your body. When it comes to fructose, 90 percent is metabolized in your liver and it converts to fat 18.9 times faster than glucose does. So unless you are extremely physically active, if you eat a lot of fructose, your liver will be manufacturing a lot of fat.
According to Dr. Tyree Winters, an osteopathic paediatrician specialising in childhood obesity "Fructose provides no nutritional value and isn't metabolized in the brain. Your body converts it to fat, but doesn't recognize that you've eaten, so the hunger doesn't go away. Many young patients tell me they're always hungry, which makes sense because what they're eating isn't helping their bodies function."
Fructose is the sugar naturally present in fruit, but eating fruit doesn’t cause metabolic problems unless you really overdo it, or you are very insulin resistant and sensitive to sugar. The biggest problem with fructose is that it’s found in nearly all processed foods. Ordinary sugar (called sucrose) is comprised of a glucose molecule joined to a fructose molecule. Therefore any food that contains added sugar is bound to be high in fructose. Liquid fructose, such as found in soda and fruit juice is especially bad because it gets absorbed into the bloodstream so quickly; heads straight to the liver and gets converted into fat.
Sugar can feel addictive and you may feel dreadful in the first few days of quitting it, as your body detoxifies. However, it’s worth it, because your metabolism will heal and you should feel significantly better after the first week. The ingredients in Glicemic Balance capsules help to stabilize blood sugar, and that significantly reduces cravings and hunger. Taking a magnesium supplement is also very helpful, because magnesium helps with stress, anxiety, tension and depression. It is common to experience negative emotions while detoxing from sugar.
Magnesium should also help you to sleep better. This is actually the most important strategy in getting hunger and cravings under control. If you don’t sleep well or get adequate sleep, you are far more prone to make emotional rather than rational decisions when it comes to eating. Lack of sleep also raises the hunger hormones in your body, so you will genuinely feel hungrier. So rather than getting out of bed at 5 am to exercise, you are better off staying in bed and getting more sleep. Exercise is important, but not at the expense of good quality sleep. If your sleep quality is not good enough; you may want to try a magnesium supplement. It can help you achieve a deeper sleep. People who have difficulties falling asleep usually improve with a melatonin supplement.
If you are finding it difficult to lose weight despite eating well, Metabocel tablets can help to boost your metabolic rate. The herb garcinia reduces the conversion of calories you’ve consumed into body fat. The tyrosine in Metabocel is used to manufacture thyroid hormones, which control your metabolic rate. Vitamin B6 reduces premenstrual bloating and premenstrual low mood.
