Like most of us you might have jotted down your New Year’s resolutions, which probably include the usual: joining the gym and quitting alcohol. But what about quitting sugar?
Being in a long-term relationship with sugar can be toxic. If you want to live a healthy and happier life, you need to cut off all ties with it and start afresh! Canderel gives you four ways to break up with sugar:
- Out with the old, in with the new – The best way to get over a break-up is to try something new, so swap to sucralose, a low-calorie sweetener. It looks like sugar and tastes even better. It is about 200 times sweeter, so a little goes a long way. Try it and you will never look back.
- Prevent tooth decay – Keep on smiling. If you want to keep your pearly whites, kick sugar to the curb because it provides easily digestible energy for the bad bacteria in the mouth to fester, breaking down minerals and tooth enamel, leaving you with cavities. Sweeteners are not sugar and have no effect on how the body digests carbohydrates or any effect on other food you eat, so you can indulge without affecting those perfect teeth. After all, a smile is your best accessory.
- Break free from addiction – Kick the habit. Eating sugar releases dopamine in the reward centre of the brain. But if you have too much, it can cause a massive dopamine release, which can become addictive. Canderel doesn’t release any dopamine, so it’s not addictive.
- Maintain weight and a healthy heart – People have blamed saturated fat for heart disease. However, evidence is mounting that sugar – not fat – may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on our metabolisms. Studies have confirmed that sucralose has no effect on short- or long-term blood glucose control for individuals with normal blood glucose levels or for individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
