3 Reasons Why You Should Quit Sugar And How to Make it Happen

Headaches, mood swings, skin problems and hitting the snooze button on your alarm for the tenth time all have something in common. They are all signs of excess sugar intake and they’re the reason millions of people have decided to give sugar the slip.

We’ll be unpacking everything you need to know about how giving up sugar can change your life and how to make it happen with our 8-Week Program.

First, why you should quit sugar.

1. Lower your risk for heart disease, diabetes, obesity and a host of other conditions.

Obesity rates have tripled since 1975, with sugar consumption playing a major role in. This becomes clear when we see the research showing the daily intake in 1750 in the USA was around a teaspoon, just a fraction of today’s numbers. Aussies consume around 15 teaspoons of added sugar each day, far exceeding the 6-teaspoon recommendation, leaving many at risk of developing obesity. Studies prove that excessive sugar intake is a contributing factor in obesity, along with causing insulin resistance, which leads to diabetes.

2. Improve your mental health.

Research shows the incidence of depression is higher in those who consume excess sugar, and another study found anxiety was increasingly reported in those over 60 who have higher sugar intakes. With the global anxiety rate surpassing 7%, it’s a wide-spread health crisis with a range of causes – but sugar is a known contributor. It’s not just long-term conditions either, excess sugar consumption can also lead to a number of short-term consequences like blood sugar spikes. These occur after a sugary meal, throwing our blood sugar levels out of whack. Take a look at some of the signs below:

  1. Irritability and anger.
  2. Fatigue.
  3. Headaches.
  4. Anxiety.
  5. Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet.
  6. Increased thirst.
  7. Increased need to urinate.

These symptoms can get in the way of productivity at work and school, disrupt sleep patterns and lead to a vicious cycle of low mood and poor mental health. Cutting sugar out is one way to put a stop to these spikes and reduce your risks for developing mood disorders like depression.

3. Heal your gut health.

Sugar strikes again when it comes to gut health and a balanced microbiome, with research finding high-sugar diets mess with your gut bacteria, finding it lowered microbial diversity – meaning less immunity to infections. Excess sugar how been shown to drive up levels of Proteobacteria, and this can lead to dysbiosis; this is when the microbiome gets thrown off balance, putting us at higher risk for metabolic disorders and autoimmune conditions.

The solution? Cut down on sugar. Eating a low-sugar diet rich in fatty acids, fibre and probiotic foods is one of the best ways to maintain gut health.

Here’s how you can get started.
