YOU WILL LOOK AND FEEL YOUNGER AND YOUR SKINS AGING PROCESS WILL SLOW
You probably already know that sugar is bad for your heart and your waistline, but it can also take a toll on the appearance of your skin. Glycation is a process that makes it harder for your skin to maintain its youthful glow and repair itself from damage. The glycation process speeds up when you eat sugar.

YOUR MOOD WILL STABILISE, LOWERING YOUR RISK OF DEPRESSION
Fluctuations in blood glucose can result in rapid mood changes, including low mood and irritability, and may even cause long-term disorders like depression. Cutting out those simple sugars will return your blood sugar level to a normal range, and the mood swings dissipate!
YOU’LL SLEEP A LOT BETTER
Your late-night snack may be standing between you and a good night‘s sleep, increasing the hunger hormone ghrelin and stress hormone cortisol. by simply replacing those sugars with fibrous foods, will help you fall into a deep sleep, essential for restoration and healing the mind, body, and soul.
YOUR CRAVINGS WILL REDUCE SO THOSE EXTRA POUNDS WILL JUST MELT AWAY

So, when you cut back on fizzy drinks and desserts, you’ll start reducing belly fat and the dangerous conditions that come with it. Ditching dessert for fibre, protein and low GI complex carbohydrates will give your body all the nourishment it needs.
