Eat Less Sugar
Sugar is the enemy, and you’ve known it all along. Now science shows that junk and high-sugar food (like cakes, fries, meat pies, and cookies) could potentially affect memory skills after just one week of including them in a diet. Researchers at the University of New South Wales noticed that rats that ate high-sugar diets were not able to locate certain objects that the researchers moved around while rats on a healthier diet could. And as we know, sugar harms the body too. A recent study found that even sugar-like artificial sweeteners like Splenda are no better — they may stave off the pounds, but can still hijack the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar, which impairs your metabolic function and could lead to diabetes.
Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California San Francisco who studies the effects of sugar says the advice per sugar is simple: “Sugar has a causative role in diabetes unrelated to its calories, while other studies have shown the same effect for heart disease and death. Bottom line, cut the added sugar, and you”ll be happier and live longer.” You can limit the sugar from sugary beverages first. The body doesn”t burn this liquid sugar as fast as it does solids, and so those toxic enemies could live in your body longer, causing more harm.
