Our bodies need FUEL to function and for most of us, that fuel is sugar or glucose.
The food we eat food is converted to glucose inside our body and that fuels each cell to keep
our body working.
BUT…there are a few issues with fuelling your body this way though.
When you need more fuel, a cocktail of chemicals in your body screams at you to EAT NOW, causing extreme
hunger, rash food decisions, overeating and a fixation on where and when you can next eat.
If you don’t eat enough, your body will quickly remind you to eat more, but if you eat too much, it just
wraps up the excess into a fat cell and weight gain occurs.
Glucose requires insulin, which takes it out of the bloodstream and helps transport it to the cells. Insulin
has some positive benefits, but too much of it has many negative side effects. For example, insulin resistance
and metabolic disease which can lead to prediabetes, type 2 diabetes and a host of other serious health problems
like strokes, some cancers and the leading cause of death globally heart disease. And So Much More…
Because you are running on glucose, you often crave sugar (especially around 3pm when your energy slumps)
and the side effects of too much sugar is well known and has been linked to weight gain, tooth decay, acne, depression
increased risk of disease, cellular aging, skin aging, lack of energy and fatty liver disease.
