Weight gain, tight clothing, and tooth decay are often cited as clear indicators that should be enough to curb our sugar addiction. However, there are other significant factors that you should pay attention to.

Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of chocolate, a cookie, or perhaps a sweet dessert? This message is not aimed at occasional indulgers but rather at those who consume too much sugar on a daily basis.

As our bodies reflect our eating habits, here are the most common signs of high sugar consumption. In addition to weight gain and dental damage, here are seven common effects of consuming large amounts of sugar.

Acne: The more sugar you eat, the higher the likelihood of skin problems, including acne. Science has repeatedly pointed out the link between sugar consumption and an increased tendency to develop this condition.

Fatigue: Cutting out sugar can lead to headaches, drowsiness, or discomfort. If you eat a lot of sugar and don’t balance it out with a nutrient-rich diet, you are likely to experience a loss of energy. The best way to break this addiction is to reduce the amount of sugar you consume each day gradually.

High blood pressure: High sugar consumption can raise your blood pressure to above-normal levels.
High cholesterol: Sugar increases the amount of various fats circulating in the blood. This quieter sign of sugar consumption requires considerable attention, as sugar can lower the so-called ‘good cholesterol’ (HDL) and increase the ‘bad cholesterol’ (LDL).

Exhaustion after exercise: If you find that physical exercise becomes increasingly strenuous, it could be because you are consuming too much sugar. Sugar causes a rapid rise in energy, followed by a sharp drop, leading to exhaustion.

Depressed mood: Numerous scientific studies have linked sugar consumption to an increased risk of depression. This is because a high-sugar diet increases inflammation levels in the body, which is also linked to higher depression levels.

Constant hunger: Foods that are high in sugar and low in protein are quickly consumed by the body. When you choose sugary foods, the most common thing you miss is a feeling of satiety.
