More and more research show that refined sugar wreaks havoc on our health. A powerful way to limit your intake of this sweet poison is to cut down on soda, (fresh) juice and energy drinks. Most of these beverages contain 5 to 10 teaspoons of sugar, which increases your blood sugar levels (a vicious cycle) that can cause long-term damage to your body. Unfortunately, diet soda is not a healthy alternative to regular soft drinks. Artificial sweeteners make your body think that you are consuming real sugar, and this confuses your metabolism, resulting in burning more calories while craving even more sweet and refined carbs. If you want to cut down on your sugar consumption, then start swapping your soda and fruit juice for plain water. You can gradually learn to enjoy your hot beverages without added sugar or sweeten your tea and coffee with green stevia.
