Sugar is the single worst ingredient in modern diet. It has way too many calories, has no nutrients and damages your metabolism. According to the USDA (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture) estimates that the typical american consumes around 30 teaspoons of added sugar (not from fruits) a day.
Fruit consumption out of every other food type has been proven to be the most effective in preventing cancer. Specifically oral, esophageal, lung, prostate, pancreatic and colorectal cancer. Not to mention, our brains work mostly on sugar. In fact, our natural sweet tooth is an actual biological mechanism for our body to make sure it receives the sugar it needs to work properly. Specially our nervous system.
Unfortunately, when our bodies need sugar and makes your body crave it, most of the population recurs to processed sugars like candy, donuts, cakes and so on. So not only did you not answer your body with what it needed but you added extra calories and chemicals it wasn’t expecting.
Researchers have discovered substances in fruits that prevent aging and deterioration of the brain (it’s the REAL sugar it wants). Fruits are also linked to lower mortality from ALL cancers.
Fruits are vital for the body’s normal functioning. Everyday that goes by and you don’t provide the freshness and nutrients from fruits, you’re robbing your body of the nutrients it needs to keep healthy and disease free. With so many chemicals and toxins in our everyday living, fruits are key in helping to eliminate them.
REMEMBER, you may be healthy right now, but if you suffer from digestive discomfort, skin issues, headaches, pain, your body is already suffering in some way. Any health symptoms comes from a deeper issue within.
DO YOU EAT FRUITS EVERYDAY?? Three portions a day should suffice. Love your body, take care of your body. It’s the only one you have.
