Get Healthy, STOP Eating Sugar.

What happens to your body when you eat sugar?

Sugar feeds cancer. Cutting out sugar cuts food supply to the cancer cells.
Soda is a significant contributor to obesity.
Drinking a single can a day of sugary drinks translates to more than a pound of weight gain every month.

Diet soda is just as likely to cause weight gain as regular, or even more -- it may sound counter intuitive, but people who drink diet soft drinks actually don’t lose weight.

Artificial sweeteners induce a whole set of physiologic and hormonal responses that actually make you gain weight.

First the body goes into a "sugar shock" spiking insulin levels and creating a brief energy rush. After the body recovers from the shock, it starts working furiously to recover its internal balance by the raiding of vital nutrients in order to process sugar.
This can lead to our bodies becoming acidic. In other words... sugar can alter our entire blood chemistry research shows that just two teaspoons of sugar can throw off your chemical balance.

Refined sugar contains no fiber, no minerals, no proteins, no fats, no enzymes, only empty calories. What happens when you eat a refined carbohydrate like sugar? Your body must borrow vital nutrients from healthy cells to metabolize the incomplete food. Calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium are taken from various parts of the body to make use of the sugar. Many times, so much calcium is used to neutralize the effects of sugar that the bones become osteoporotic due to the withdrawn calcium.

Likewise, the teeth are affected and they lose their components until decay occurs and you lose teeth!

...Refined sugar is void of all nutrients, consequently it causes the body to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes. If sugar consumption is continued, an over-acid condition results, and more minerals are needed from deep in the body to correct the imbalance. If the body is lacking the nutrients used to metabolize sugar, it will not be able to properly handle and rid itself of the poisonous residues.

You are hands down right, because your body is made to convert the compounds in healthy food, like veggies, into glucose- form of sugar your body uses to make energy. Thanks for the information!!!!

I didn't realize that drinking a can of sugary soda a day could translate to over a pound of weight gain! My husband and I have been trying to come up with a fitness plan to get in shape and cutting out sugary drinks sounds like a great place to start. We are planning on enrolling in a fitness camp this summer and I'd imagine it will be much easier to participate if we have cut sugar from our diets. http://www.fitfeelsgood.ca/services/
