We may all be familiar with the fact that fats and carbohydrates play a huge role in weight gain. However, sugars are also responsible for weight gain. In addition, increased intake of sugars often leads to rapid weight gain.

These days, sugar is found in almost every food and drink we consume, such as honey, raisins, fruit juices, fruits like mangoes and bananas, and many others.

Nevertheless, weight gain is not the worst result of excessive sugar consumption. Sugar intake also contributes to experiencing health issues, for instance, fatigue, depression, sleepiness, mental disorientation, hyperactivity, yeast infection, headaches, and sinus issues. Moreover, the risk of heart diseases, diabetes, and cancer increases if excessive amounts of sugar are consumed.

How are sugar consumption and weight gain related?

In order to function properly, the body needs sugar. But, the body only needs a part of it that is used for energy, and the rest stores in the body in the form of fat. Excessive sugar consumption often leads to useless fat on the face, hips, thighs, and waist.

It is not that easy to say NO to sugar, especially if you are addicted to it. At first, you may experience headaches, sadness, fatigue, and cravings for sugar, which is common in giving up on any addiction. For that reason, it is not wise to cut out all sugar products at the same time, but one by one.
