Do you want to improve your health? The first step you need to take is to give up sweets. The most effective way to control your sugar and simple carbohydrate intake is to eliminate them from your diet.
Avoiding white sugar, flour, baked goods, pasta, rice, fruit juices, and sodas is the first step. When eating such foods, the body receives simple carbohydrates and converts them into simple glucose, and it provokes a sharp increase in blood sugar levels.
Why does the body suffer from sweets and how to stop it
Glucose, which the body receives from simple carbohydrates, rapidly penetrates into the bloodstream, which causes a jump in blood sugar levels. When complex carbohydrates are consumed, this does not happen, since the body needs more time to digest such foods.

When glucose enters the blood, the pancreas begins to intensively release the hormone insulin. With the help of this hormone, glucose is sent to cells and muscles, then used by them for energy. If there is too much glucose, as is the case with simple carbohydrates, then the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin, so the body suffers from an excess of glucose.
Various diseases, in particular type 2 diabetes, can also interfere with sufficient insulin production. In this case, it is much more difficult for glucose molecules to get into cells, muscles and they accumulate in the blood, as a result of which the sugar level continues to rise.
With a constant excess of glucose, various health problems arise:
- Blood vessels are damaged
- Vision and hearing are impaired
- Gum disease occurs
- Neuropathy (loss of sensation) begins
- Hypertension and other heart diseases develop
- Intestines and kidneys suffer
Therefore, to promote health, it is worth including complex carbohydrates in the diet, that is, fibrous foods – whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Remember that the first step to health is a balanced diet, so watch what you eat. published by econet.ru.
