Sugar, Obesity and Better Alternatives


Hi Beauty! 

Obesity and an increasing waistline have tripled since its first public acknowledgement, in 1975; while there are over 2 billion overweight individuals above 18 years in the world, with almost a million tagged obese, there is one substance at the middle of this rather alarming epidemic – SUGAR.

Whether you eat sugar directly or not, sugar is the number one cause of obesity. As part of our diet, we can hardly do without sugar; in fact, food manufacturers are becoming clever that sugar is now “sugar-coated” into different elements deceiving a larger population to consume more sugar than usual.

Studies show that the average American consumes over 20 teaspoons of sugar, which is well above the recommended quantity by the American Heart Association of 9 and 6 teaspoons for men and women respectively.

 Though sugar is mostly related to heart issues, and so forth, we tend to forget that obesity is the reason why most of these diseases come to light. 2.8 million Deaths are registered each year from obesity and been overweight.
