Why is sugar so bad for you?

Sugar perpetuates overall inflammation, dumps fat on your liver (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease); makes your cells resistant to the effects of insulin (insulin resistant); and then gives you metabolic syndrome, abdominal obesity, cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes. It also messes with your fertility.

There’s more. Medical research in the last decade has provided compelling evidence for the involvement of insulin resistance in cancer. While Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, is now viewed as a type of diet-induced diabetes (dubbed by doctors as Type 3 diabetes, or “Diabetes of the Brain”).

Watch this video to learn more about the effects of sugar consumption on brain health. I break down the negative side effects of sugar on brain health and share my top tips to help decrease sugar cravings and improve brain function and well being.

While sugar in small amounts is not a major concern, most of us are eating too much of the sweet stuff and could benefit from cutting back in the way we consume sugar and the type of sugar consumed as well.
