Do you think sugar is only bad for your figure? Not!
You may be underestimating harm of sugar to health…
Building the body of your dreams is not the main reason for giving up sugar. There are more important reasons to quit sweets.
Most often, we do not use sugar in its pure form, but as an additive to various food products.
That is why it is difficult to estimate how much “white death” enters the body from day to day.
Sugar is quickly absorbed by the body, so it instantly gives us energy.
But if you lead a sedentary lifestyle, then the body will not be able to use up such an amount of energy. All excess will be deposited in the sides.
