Sugar's Effect on the Body

Being an extreme carbivore with a strong affinity toward sugar, my body practically seeps sweetness in my very breath, I'm starting to experience the point where sugar becomes toxic to the body.  So I've been doing more research and finally found a pretty good website, grammar excluded, on sugar's effect on the body.

Sugar's Effect on Your Health

Of particular interest to me was sugar's effect on insulin response, which regulates a great many things in the body including fat storage and calcium uptake.  Basically, the more sugar you eat the more fat you store, the more you have stomach issues, the less calcium you retain, the higher your blood pressure, and the more tired you get... among a myriad of other health problems.  Read more on insulin and insulin resistance to find out exactly how insulin resistance works.  It's enlightening.

Symptoms of Insulin Resistance
  • fatigue
  • brain fogginess
  • low blood sugar
  • intestinal bloating
  • increased weight and fat storage (metabolism is affected)
  • sleepiness
  • increased triglycerides
  • increased blood pressure
  • depression
