The main ingredient that you might be consuming which leads to obesity and overweight is sugar, but also it is worth mentioning that fats and carbohydrates contribute to this state of the body. Of course we are not talking about moderate amounts of sugar since it doesn’t impose danger to your health. There aren’t many people that actually are aware of the fact that large amounts of sugar is consumed through consuming sodas, cereals, drinks, salad dressings, yogurt, candies, etc.
You should be aware that these products accumulate large amount of sugar in the body. Also be aware that simple carbs can be found in foods such as raisins, bananas, honey, natural fruit juices, and mangoes.
Our body is organized to rapidly use sugars and transform it into energy source. The increased blood glucose levels could have harmful effects on your health. Also you should be aware that surplus amount of sugar could create serious health problems and it could reduce the absorption process of nutrients.
If you consume excessive amount of sugar it could trigger serious health issues and side-effects such as hyperactivity, tiredness, depression, sinus problems, yeast infections, insomnia, disorientation, and headaches. On the other hand chronic overconsumption of sugar could raise the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular issues, as well as breast cancer.

If you consume excessive amount of sugar which often is found in different foods it won’t have the same effect on the body as natural sugars. Consuming such foods could also lead to formation of germs in the bowels, thus increasing the level of sugar in the body. This type of sugar is also turned into fat. You could easily recognize sugar addicts. They often consume large amounts of sugar and their body is accumulating unnecessary fat on the hips, waist, face, and thighs.
