One of the biggest ingredients in the food industry is sugar. It's in nearly every processed food on the market and is often disguised under other names. And it gets worse. 

Because sugar is an added ingredient to almost every product on the store shelf, it's very easy to consume too much of the sweet stuff in high quantities and not even realize it. 

Have you checked the ingredients label on your ketchup bottle lately? Chances are it contains sugar. That glass of wine you had at dinner? There's a really good chance it has sugar. Your favorite frozen meal most likely has some form of sweetener in it. 

Now add that daily cup of coffee and slice of cheesecake and you're setting yourself up for a huge acne breakout, not to mention health-related issues like brain fog, tooth decay, and no energy. Sugar may even affect your mental health in more ways than just a foggy brain moment or two. It may also increase the symptoms of Autism and ADHD. 

While not all sugar is bad for you, learning how to spot the difference between natural sugars found in fruit and added sweeteners hidden in prepackaged foods can help make a significant improvement to your health. 

Plus, consuming less sugar can be beneficial in many ways. For example:

  • You'll reduce your chances of an acne outbreak. And, as much as we may love chocolate or soda, our skin does not! Even your daily cup of cappuccino can cause an acne flare-up. 

  • Your head will feel so much clearer and your memory could improve. Consuming a large number of sweets can cause brain fog, as well as memory problems.

  • You feel more rested and alert.  That doughnut you had at the office can cause your energy level to drop significantly and make you feel tired. And if you're indulging in sugary sweets just before bedtime, it could make you feel restless. 

Kicking sugar out of your life doesn't mean you have to consume dull and bland treats. You can replace refined sugar with natural sweeteners found in fruits and vegetables. You can even add a small amount of raw honey or maple syrup to your favorite desserts and even drinks. 

When grocery shopping, try to stay with produce that isn't prepackaged. If you must purchase foods that are processed, check the ingredient label for added sweeteners like sugar, corn syrup, dextrose, glucose and,d high-fructose corn syrup. If you are in doubt, skip it and consider a natural food alternative or make it from scratch.

Cutting out sugar isn't about sacrifice. It's about compromise and taking back your health, naturally. Are you in?
