Although sugar does not directly cause anxiety, it can make already existing symptoms worse and weaken the body’s ability to respond to stress.
By minimizing sugar intake, there is a chance of decreasing the risk of anxiety symptoms, improving mood, and improving the body’s stress-coping capabilities.
3. Learning Comprehension
Sugar can affect how we learn, how much we learn, and how much we retain.
Our bodies and minds were not designed to take in such large amounts of sugar, which have become an integral part of American society.
Through new studies, we are more aware of the intricate link between the way we eat and the way we think.
Steps to take now:
1. Remove Foods with Added Sugar
Most processed foods have added sugar to them. Read the labels carefully. Many foods that you wouldn’t suspect to be sweetened also have added sugar, such as pasta sauces, salad dressings, and condiment sauces.
2. Eat Fruit if You’re Craving a Sweet Snack
Cut down (or ideally eliminate) sodas or fruit juices from your diet.
