Sugar Is harmful to your body! Personally, I call Sugar ….SLOW POISION!
This is because Sugar can do a lot of damage to your body, and “set you up” obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
And you won’t see this damage right away. It takes years and years of consuming a lot of sugar before you realise the extent of the damage done to your body.
When you consume sugar, it stimulates the pleasure centres’ of your brain. It gives your brain a sense of enjoyment.
That is why you see that people who are unhappy, annoyed, depressed turn to comfort eating where they eat cake, alcohol etc.
Eating sugary foods gives a part of your brain a bit of pleasure, which distracts your body from the pain or sadness that you are experiencing.
According to science, the type of pleasurable sensation you get from consuming too much sugar is similar to what happens when an addict takes cocaine.
After taking sugar for a while, you develop a tolerance.
This means for you to keep getting the same pleasurable feeling, you need to consume more and more sugar.
And at this point, you are now an addict!
If you drink fizzy drinks e.g. coke, fanta, pepsi etc on a daily basis or frequently, then you are addicted to sugar.
These Fizzy drinks contain between 6-8 spoons of sugar.
If you eat a lot of cake, chocolates or any other major flour based snack e.g. sausage rolls, Meat pie especially when you are sad or depressed or annoyed, then you are addicted to sugar.
If you are the type that cannot eat any food (e.g. beans, yam, Garri, Pap etc) without adding sugar to it, then you are addicted to sugar too.
The problem with sugar is that, when you consume it in excess, it causes the storage of fat.
Excess sugar in your body triggers your body to produce more insulin which tells your body’s fat storage cells to store more energy in form of fat in it’s cells.
And that is when you see the result of the stored energy in the form of fat that you can pinch around your belly with your hands.
My point is, Excess sugar is the cause of a “big body” like the one in the picture below:
So this year, the key to cutting down the fat in your body is to do everything possible within your power to QUIT sugar!
And I’d like to show you exactly how to do that below….
Cut any fruit of your choice into a water bottle or drinking bottle, and then fill that bottle with water, and shake for few seconds and you can start drinking.
Some examples of fruits you can use are Lemon, Pine Apple, Orange, Cucumber etc.
You can make pineapple and orange infused water by following the below:
HOW TO PREPARE
In a large jug, add your orange and pineapple slices, then fill the jug with water. Add ice and let the jug sit in the fridge for up to 1 hour .
Pour the water (without the pineapple and orange) into a cup and drink.
When the water is 1/4 left in the jug, refill the water and place back in the fridge and you can do this several times.
Eliminate sugary beverages like Fanta, Coke, Pepsi, or any other fizzy drinks from your daily meals. Instantly replace them with Lemon water and the fruit infused water I showed you above.
It’s easy for anyone to tell you to “cut out” sugar from what you eat daily. But in reality, most people are unable to do this because of addiction.
An alternative method is that you half the amount of sugar you eat daily. If you use 8 spoons of sugar right now, reduce it to 4.
After two weeks, reduce it down to 2 spoons. In another two weeks, reduce it to Zero!
When you approach it this way, you will give your body and your “brain” time to adjust and reduce your cravings easily.
The same thing applies to chocolate, cake, cookies, biscuit, sweetened yoghurt, ice cream and other sugar foods out there. If you eat them daily, reduce it to 3 times weekly, then after two weeks, cut it down to once a week etc.
A lot of Nigerians “claim” that they don’t like vegetables.
This is because, most times, we all believe that the major vegetables available are are cucumber, cabbage, lettuce, kale etc.
But in reality, we do have our own vegetables that we enjoy a lot. Bitter leaf, Garden Egg, Spinach (Green), Ugwu etc.
These are delicious vegetables that we cook on a daily basis. Cook them the healthy way and eat them as part of a daily meal.
Vegetables take longer to digest and then curb your cravings. You can expect to feel full after eating a bowl of Fish Vegetable stew with 1-2 slice of boiled potatoes/yam for instance.
