Who doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat now and again? We all do and there is nothing wrong with that. The problem is that we have become accustomed to having something sweet with almost every meal. This can lead to numerous health related issues that you may not be aware of.
One big issue with consuming too much salt is that it leads to water retention. This causes weight gain, breathing issues and can worsen inflammation that you already have.
Let’s take a look at how you can eat less sugar and salt in your diet.
Why Should You Stop Eating Sugar?
In 2016, the general advice is to stop eating sugar in your diet altogether. This is, of course, tricky because many of us have a sweet tooth, thanks to diets that are rich in sugary tastiness. The more sugar we have eaten over the years, the more our body craves it now. It’s just the way of things.
The Huffington Post reports that in the US, the average person consumes more than 126 grams of sugar daily, which is almost twice the average sugar intake of all 54 countries observed by Euromonitor.
Additionally, 126 grams is two times more than the recommended daily intake, which the World Health Organization designates to be 50 grams daily for people of normal weight. However, if you stop eating sugar in your diet you could save yourself from myriad health problems in the future.
