Who doesn't love to enjoy some delicious sugary treats during the weekends? It's such an easy way to enjoy your favorite sweets that can satisfy you for the entire day. But too much of it can prove to be a huge calorie drain if you are doing it in excess. It can make you gain weight quickly, and might also wreak havoc on your health.
If you are considering ending your sugar addiction, here's how you can tell.
1. You're Depressed Or Anxious
Eating sugary food triggers a stress hormone, cortisol. This chemical tends to mimic the nervous system, and it is a hormone that spikes cortisol levels. This results in a general weakness of the muscles, lower energy, loss of appetite, and overall exhaustion.
2. Your Hunger Quotient Is Low
Low-calorie drinks or snacks have no energy, so you tend to binge on sugary foods that make you feel hungry. So, your body switches to starvation mode and goes into starvation mode to stop you from overeating.
3. You Are Always At A High Blood Pressure Level
Although sweets make you crave for something sweet, it leads to weight gain, and blood pressure levels can soar too. Sugar consumption can lower your blood pressure, which in turn, raises your risk of developing cardiovascular diseases like high blood pressure and stroke.
4. You Feel Tired Or Angry
You might feel angry and have a low mood because you are constantly eating sugar. Your hormonal level changes and causes your appetite to increase which makes you crave food more. You end up eating more and more, and it eventually results in hunger or low blood sugar.
5. You Have Too Much Urge To Sweat
If you are consuming sugary foods constantly and you are constantly sweating, it is because of sugar cravings. Studies have shown that if you have blood sugar levels in the high range, and you are constantly craving sweets, your brain will cause you to sweat.
6. Your Creatine Levels Are Low
While creatine has no direct effect on brainpower, it plays an important role in increasing your muscle strength and overall energy levels. If your creatine levels are low, you might end up feeling lethargic and bored.
