Highly addicted and hidden in a lot of foods such as packaged goods, salad dressings, marinades, cereals and more, sugar causes a lot of issues and affects more than just your weight.
Giving up sugar is difficult, however if you wish to see results, whether that be digestive health as well as weight loss, then you’ll need to give up the sugar (or at least reduce it considerably).
The average American consumes 205 grams or 51 teaspoons of sugar a day.
51 teaspoons... I cannot even fathom that...Wow!
The recommended daily intake is approximately 6 teaspoons which is 24 grams. I personally don’t do anywhere near the 6 teaspoons, but sugar is one of the major things you need to eliminate from your diet if you want to burn fat and/or maintain a healthy gut.
I don't know about you, but when I have had too much sugar, my stomach bloats up and becomes sore and I generally don't feel well. It affects my concentration levels and I find that I'm constantly picking at food, even though I'm not hungry. Must admit I still do this...on Christmas Day, constantly picking at food when I know I'm not hungry....but it's Christmas!
I chose to stop overindulging in sugary treats 10 years or so ago, I have never felt better as all my symptoms of bloating, gas and feeling just blah, disappeared. Sure there have been days when I have had too much sugar, overindulge in birthday cake, desserts or chocolate, but it's a lot easier to get back on track when the indulgences are less frequent.
Turns out there is a reason why we get bloated. Sugar is bad for our gut health. How so? Our digestive tract is full of bacteria and sugar feeds the bad bacteria. This causes an imbalance in our gut and causes bloating, gas, yeast infections and more.
If your gut health is out, then so many other things are imbalanced within the body, as the gut is the holy grail to our overall health. If you're trying to lose weight, your gut needs to be in balance first. If you're trying to improve the appearance of your skin, your gut needs to be in balance first. If you're trying to improve energy levels, you guessed it, your gut needs to be in balance first. Get this in check first and everything else will fall into place.
Heal your gut and restore good bacteria by reducing your sugar intake and take a daily dose of probiotics along with Kulture’s Fruitful Digest and Berry Cleanse. Your gut health will return along with your overall energy levels too.
