“Sugar face,” a mustache above your upper lip, and even infertility — these are just a few effects that are linked to consumption of the insidious white crystal — sugar. Taking it off of our plates and out of our cups may not turn us into superheroes, but it can definitely improve our life and our health.
We at zgrnews do love an occasional cake or coke, so we decided to find out what would happen to our bodies if we put the sugar away, at least for a little while. And the facts that we found out made us want to go count the number of sweets we’ve eaten today. Let’s take a look at them together.
1. You may get pregnant easier.
Sugar is known for its ability to give us energy by triggering insulin in our blood. But insulin is very similar to the hormones that are responsible for pregnancy. If we consume too much refined sugar, there’s so much insulin in our body that it gets confused with the hormones that help egg cells mature, so our body starts working to reduce the level of these hormones. As a result, there are less maturing eggs in our body and it becomes harder for a woman to get pregnant.
2. You won’t be as hungry and your cravings will disappear.
When entering our body, sugar influences our mental abilities as well as our self-control. Studies show that sugar has an addictive effect on some parts of our brain. When we eat sugar, our hunger-provoking hormone increases and our hunger-suppressing hormones lower. We then start craving high-calorie food like cookies or pizza, and we also tend to overeat.
