Every day a new diet craze is popularized in the news. One day nutritionists and doctors are telling you to cut all dairy and meat out of your diet and then another day they're telling you that a hamburger and a glass of milk a day keeps the doctor away. It's hard to determine what is actually good for you and what is just a fast weight-loss fad.
It's no help that society is so celebrity-obsessed that when a star comes out with a diet routine, we all follow suit. I know I'm not the only one who tried Jennifer Aniston's baby food diet to shed some pounds. I even tried Kourtney Kardashian's weird green avocado pudding concoction for my morning fuel. We also can't forget Yolanda Hadid's lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup diet drink. I could go on and on with other diets that I tried but, basically, there is only one conclusion: They do not work.
After researching and researching and more researching for solid diet and health tips, I have discovered that there is one tip that is revered by all: cut processed sugar out of your diet. There are almost no benefits of adding more sugar to your meals.
Experts aren't saying to stop eating sugar altogether because that would be almost impossible. Natural sugar is in almost everything we eat, like fruit and vegetables. You need fruits and vegetables to survive and maintain a healthy diet, so that type of sugar is OK for you. It's the extra sugar you put in your morning cup of coffee or the sugar you sprinkle over your grapefruit that needs to go. Also, we can't forget about the sugary sodas and energy drinks we consume during our 3 o'clock drop.
Cutting out processed sugar in your diet has so many benefits, including some you might have not even considered before. For example, cutting out sugar can make you an overall happier person with fewer mood swings, how awesome!
