Well, today is — what is it — Day 4 of my kick the sugar habit campaign.
I’m happy to report that it’s going very well.
This morning’s weigh-in showed ol’ John Henry is now 5 pounds lighter and getting back to where he was when his healthy eating habits flew out the window.
Not only that, I feel a lot better overall. Part of it is mental, just from being more self-disciplined, but part of it is physical, too. More clear-headed and not all sluggish and tired in the morning.
A lot better.
When I wrote a day or two ago about battling sugar addiction, some people seemed to take offense and said things like they enjoy sugar and sugar is not the enemy. OK, sure, sugar in and of itself is not evil. Just about anything in moderation is not evil, I suppose. Well, not just about anything, but you know what I mean.
The thing about sugar, though, is for a lot of people — including me — sugar can be addictive.
And too much sugar is definitely not good.
I did some really quick research and found a few reasons why eating too much sugar is bad for your health. Here are some:
- Can cause weight gain
- Makes your organs fat
- Can lead to heart disease
- Can lead to diabetes
- Plays havoc with cholesterol levels
- Linked with Alzheimer’s disease
- Disables your appetite control
- Can make you depressed
Now, don’t take my word for it.
I’m not a doctor.
Do your own research and see what you find out.
For me, sugar can be a big problem. Maybe not for you.
But if it is, there’s plenty you can do to get back on track and kick that sugar habit.
If I can do it, anyone can!
