Fall Out of Love with Sugar

3 Reasons Why You Should Cut Out Refined Sugar

  1. You will have a sharper mind.

  2. Eating too much sugar can impair your cognitive functions and reduce proteins that are vital for memory and responsiveness.

  3. You will look younger.

  4. Consuming too much added sugar can make your skin dull and wrinkled. Do you really want that?

  5. You will nix that sugar addiction and stop cravings.

  6. When you consume too much sugar, it can stop healthy dopamine from signaling in your brain. As a result, you will have to eat more sugar to fire off those same pleasure signals in the brain.

No more excess refined sugar, no problem.
