5 signs you’re actually eating too much sugar


The recommended daily amount of sugar intake for a woman is around 25 grams or six teaspoons.

However, everyone’s body is different so you may have to consume even less sugar than this. As well as that, so many people eat far too much sugar anyway.

If you are eating too much sugar, your body will let you know with a few tell tale signs – but what are they?

1. Headaches

Unfortunately, too much sugar can lead to headaches because of the sudden spike of sugar and then the drop in blood glucose levels.

If you’re having migranes more than once a month, then perhaps it’s time to cut down on the sugar.

2. Hormone Imbalance

A sugary diet can be linked to so many different hormone issues, especially for women.

It can also affect your stress levels! Yay! And with hormone imbalance comes something we thought we had out grown.

3. Acne

Due to sugar, our hormones become unbalanced leading to break outs. So thanks for that fizzy drinks!

4. Mood Swings

As if the hormone imbalance was enough to make us feeling irrational, sugar can just cause mood swings by itself! No hormones needed, my friend.

This happens because sugar is absorbed much more quickly into your body than fat or protein, so this results in a surge of energy and a very sudden drop. So, eating a healthier meal will lead to us being fuller and happier.

5. Being Unable To Lose Weight

If you have a constant stream of sugar in your body, you apparently can’t utilise its own fat stores which means you won’t lose any weight.
