What Are the Benefits of Eating Less Sugar?
"Long-term effects of eating too much added sugar can be elevated triglyceride and cholesterol levels in the body," explained Emily, which is a risk factor for coronary heart disease. Eating too much sugar can also cause weight gain, mood swings, and headaches.
There's also some evidence that suggests that consuming excess added sugars could raise blood pressure, warned Jackie. Some studies have also shown that high intake of sugars is associated with increased levels of oxidative stress and inflammation.
With all that said, cutting down on added sugar can greatly reduce your risk for these health issues. It'll also make more room for nutrient-dense foods that will leave you feeling full of energy and satisfied.
