Sugar, horrible companion to live with

in Culture

Sugar is a favorite among all of us to sweeten anything. What we eat may be saturated with it. However, it is a key factor linked to obesity and serious health problems. Read this post because it will help you on a radical level.


Ever since humans were living in society looking good has been an important issue. In fact, all of us have studied at school how a canon on beauty was created during Ancient Greece. Yet, it is more than clear than in current times this notion is even bigger. 

There is a major concern to look good and people play sports in a much more radical way than before. Consequently, why are we fatter than past generations?.

I read once a revealing university study. It was substantial and relevant. The study compared diets and lifestyle to previous generations. The amount of food was not so different. The only thing that was dissimilar was the amount of sugar intaken.

Furthermore, it inferred that food companies had included a bigger amount of this ingredient on products. Since then, we all humans have grown fatter and fatter. 


No matter how much sport do you practice or the aware of looking good. You are to be fatter than your grandparents because of this sweet constituent.

Sugar produces a pleasant feeling for our brain, a chemical called dopamine. But it is a false good feeling though. After a short amount of time our brain will require more of it. The only thing our body knows to do with remaining sugar is to transform it into fat. Insulin, the hormone in charge to regulate it gets so busy that transforms it into fat.


Even if you are concerned and you eat brown sugar or honey, it does not really have a strong impact. The same happens with saccharin or aspartame. These substances are not fully great, only slightly better. After all, they are still a kind of sugar. 

Everything contains sugar, resistant to time, cheap to food brands, delicious to everybody and pleasant for our brain. We do not realize it but we are getting hooked on it.

Scrutinize the following. We only need 25 grams of sugar daily and a single can of soda has 40 grams of it. The worst is that fruits already have all the sugar a human needs hence we do not really need it.


What is the solution? Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits because contain the quantity of sugar you need. What is more, this sugar is of good quality because it is overlaid with fibre. What is the problem? The problem starts if you utterly hate fruits and you strongly love sweets. You should rediscover the true taste of food.

All things considered, watch out your intake of sugar, a dangerous substance to be hooked on. A horrible companion to live with.
