10 Important Reasons to Cut Sugar

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Apr 10, 2012


Sugar's toll on your health


The bitter news that the average American eats 130 pounds of sugar a year explains why obesity and other weight-related health problems are on the rise. Sugar causes weight gain and can also affect your health in the following negative ways, which is more than enough convincing evidence to show that sugar has no place in your diet.

What the research says about sugar

  1. Sugar is believed to be the main cause of childhood and obesity
  2. Sugar is believed to be the main cause of childhood sickness
  3. Sugar is believed to be the main cause of Type 2 diabetes
  4. Sugar is believed to be the main cause of hypertension
  5. Sugar is believed to be the main cause of heart disease
  6. Sugar is blamed as a culprit of rising rates of number one killers such as heart disease
  7. Sugar increases blood levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol
  8. Sugar increases risk factors for cardiovascular disease
  9. Sugar helps cancer cells grow
  10. Sugar is addicting and has a drug-like effect on the brain

The sugar solution

Your solution to avoiding the above health problems is to cut sugar from your diet. As the evidence shows, sugar is toxic and has no health benefits. It's not only harmful to your health, but it can also be addicting, so even a small amount could potentially lead you to wanting more, which can make you gain weight and also put you at risk for serious health conditions.


Foods with hidden sugar

In addition to avoiding processed and packaged foods that are high in sugar, look out for foods with hidden sugar in them. You'd be surprised which ones do contain sugar: bread, yogurt, sauces and peanut butter.
