We've all heard that too much highly processed, refined sugar can have devastating effects on your metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases. This is no joke...Here's why:
- The average American adult consumes 22 teaspoons every day. That adds up to over 130 pounds of the stuff every year.
- Sugar contains tons of calories with no essential nutrients. All it does is cause tooth decay by literally feeding harmful bacteria in your mouth!
- An excess amount of sugar can have a devastating effect on your metabolism.
- Sugar is highly addictive because after ingestion it causes a huge release of dopamine in your brain, which keeps you coming back for more.
