Careful THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT HAVING A NICE PHYSIQUE.
First of all, we’d just like to mention that this post will not talk about the looking good effects and the physical appearance. As for us, health is more important than having a nice body, showing abs or bikini on the beach. But for sure, stop eating sugar will also help you to have a better shape.
However, our main goal is to make people aware on how it can be beneficial for their health for cutting down on sugar.
We agree that It can be hard for some people to stop eating sugar at all. Nonetheless, reducing and eating the amount which is recommended will at least make you definitely healthier.
So, what’s sugar?
Before talking about the best health benefits on stop eating sugar, let’s talk briefly about what is sugar. Especially refined sugar.
Refined sugar is crap, we all know it. Then, some people love it or without noticing are just addicted to it. It’s actually not their fault as it’s just a drug as any other. Cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, caffeine, sugar…
Sugar could be just the worst and most dangerous drug in the world. With this sociable and happiness short effects and all other associations of why kids and adults love it.
Sugar can look cool like Ronald in MacDonald, and you can get it everywhere for cheap or for even nothing. (For instance, you can find 5 doughnuts for 25cents in UK). Plus, our “kind world”, with all its ads, is pushing you to consume more and more of it.
As we don’t want to enter too much on the negative effects caused by sugar. We’ll recommend you search it by yourself as we want to talk on the opposite. So, let’s talk about the health benefits on stop eating sugar.
Your blood levels will be at the right levels
Firstly, consuming too much sugar could be the cause of a high-pressure cholesterol and diabetes as it’s shown by the study of WebMD (that you can find in sources).
Once you stop eating sugar all these high dangerous levels will drop. Because you stop eating sugar, you’ll less likely to have diabetes. Which is directly caused by the amount of sugar in your blood.
Your LDL Cholesterol (the bad one) will drop along with your triglycerides level. You could be able to reduce these by 30% when you stop eating sugar. For instance, you can go to do blood test and do it again a month after to compare results and put a big smile on your face.
Eating sugar can lead to Obesity, which can lead directly to hypertension.
In addition, some studies have shown that the increase of salt intake tends to lead to an increase in sugar intake. Leading to a twice effect on your blood pressure.
To resume, once you stop eating sugar you are less likely to have diseases cause from it.

If you have trouble to fall asleep, it can be due to an intake of one of these nutrients: caffeine, nicotine or sugar. Obviously, it might not be the obvious reason. However, you can check what you’ve eaten before sleeping.
Indeed, because of the stimulating effects that sugar can bring you, it can make your brain up instead of resting. For instance, if you stop eating sugar like cutting caffeine after 4pm you’ll be more likely to sleep peacefully at 10pm the night coming.
Level of Insulin
Moreover, burning fats and being able to lean will be one of the others health benefits on stop eating sugar. Thanks to your level of insulin which are getting low. Nonetheless that’s not the most important. But, as said before, diabetes is induced by the rise in the sugar level, which cause the insulin to spike up too.

You need less sugar
Once you stop and you manage a period with less sugar, the sugar in your blood will decrease, and you won’t feel the craving of it, that actually accusing in your mind and your body usually.
Moreover, as any drug that trick your mind. Think about caffeine for instance. Try to stop this and you will see how it will be hard the first days. And after few days, you will say that’s actually easier to get rid of, and you will be good to be free of it.
