At this time, all of us are wary of how bad sugar is for our overall well-being, but it seems that we cannot ditch it anyway. It also make us hard to lose weight. But, it is quite impossible to avoid sugar, because it’s a common ingredient in nearly all foods that we consume every day and there is this sad part about it and that is that it’s highly addictive.
A large consumption of sugar increases the levels of dopamine much the same as other drugs like cocaine, as according to one study from Queensland University of Technology (QUT).
The study states that long-term utilization of sugar will eventually prompt a reduction of dopamine levels and therefore, in order to avoid lenient states of depression and reach the same results, people need to consume even more sugar than usual, as scientists explained. In case you can’t resist that lovely smell of the chocolate cake, you are quite likely a sugar addict. And how you can lose weight?
Here you have the most important reasons why you should be distinct from sugar in spite of everything:
- It has no nutrition value at all
- May engender some gallstones
- It is actually very addictive
- Increases the serotonin levels
- Weakens your eyesight
- Can produce ulcers
- May cause arthritis
- Raises the risks of diabetes
- Causes premature aging

These are actually the same reasons that we want to provide you with a splendid sugar detox menu that will help you to control and eventually overcome your addiction + it will help you lose weight. Check this out!
