Refined Sugar can Wreak Havoc on your Metabolism. Satisfy your Sweet Tooth with my Chocolate Pudding!

Refined sugar is a very concentrated source of quick energy, and when the body has too much (when it becomes too readily available), the body has to work extremely hard just to maintain a stable, normal blood sugar level, so you stay conscious and on your feet and alive.

This becomes almost impossible in the presence of too much refined sugar because it’s delivered into the bloodstream so rapidly and readily. To get rid of the sugar the body quickly shuttles it away to the fat cells, where it won’t ramp up the blood sugar any further. It’s a survival mechanism. So when you eat refined sugar, you are basically mainlining the stuff right into your fat cells.

Just 2 teaspoons of refined sugar can inhibit your weight loss for three to four days. Say you go out to a party and have just one soda or a piece of cake. Say goodbye to weight loss until next week. Even worse, you’ll crave more sugar, and you’ll want it bad. The most difficult time to avoid sugar is the next few days after eating sugar. There are many animal studies, suggesting that sugar is as addictive to the brain and the body as cocaine.

Refined sugar also has a suppressive effect on your immune system. Just 2 teaspoons of refined sugar will cut your T-cell count (the white blood cells that are instrumental in keeping your immune system strong and functioning) by 50 percent for two full hours after eating, leaving you more vulnerable to infection and illness.

Step away from refined sugar and turn towards metabolism-boosting treats like my Chocolate Pudding with Cacao Nibs and these other Phase 2 favorites!
