Imagine a normal stressful day after work or school, and you believe that you've done a job well done. Efforts paid off, and you are longing for some 'rewards.' Before thinking about what specific thing will serve as your prize, the song "Sugar, yes please" rushed ahead your options and turned it as you have the final choice. You're fond of winning Snickers, or Toblerone, or Coca-cola everyday to soothe your senses, and provide yourself an 'unbeatable energy' to last your day for more hours.
Your best friend's nickname is 'give-me-sugar-please', and he loves to be within your body. Your unity surpasses all the sweetest marriages mankind has ever known. Your vows are unofficial, but it seems like its forever. One day, you have to let him go because you're on your deathbed, suffering from diabetes.
Sweet, sad death.
Hey, you. Before setting your sugary fantasies put possible health risks with them first. You have the choice to live a happy life without sugar, and resetting this choice starts now. Folks, we can get rid of this sugar rush! It's time to 'shoo!' them out.
Know what to do here.
World Health Organization (WHO) determined that globally, utilization of sugar for daily energy requirements ranges from 7-25%. These sugars may be monosaccharides or disaccharides, and they are hiding in common processed foods, ketchup, juices and other sweets. It was advised to at least lower average global sugar ingestion per day by up to less than 10%, so health benefits can be seen. You can directly and indirectly, cut your usage by considering these ways:
Why not make them drink healthy options like fruit smoothies, or whole fruit? Or the world's best water. Keeping this technique would help your children live without sugary stuff, and can help them improve how they make life choices. Give them a living habitat that discourages drinking too-sweet products, and expose them to healthy necessities.
Its' easier and more economical to get fruits and vegetables straight to the wet market. Or plant and make your own food. This way, only naturally-existing sugars would barge into your system, and you can actually worry less than with the hidden sugars camouflage-ing these packaged goods.
Just try it once, you will witness how your cravings would go low, and your body will grow stronger without too much sugar. Again, be friends with water and fruits. They're the best.
Promote health and fitness to your community. Keep an eye on institutions that are irresponsible with using sugars. Exercise with like-minded people, and encourage more to be with your cause.
Start it with your home. Then your workplace. Then keep yourself filled with water and healthy drinks to quench thirst. Bring your own planned food. Say no to temptation. Have a clear motivation.
It might appear as irrelevant, but if you see how governments get hold of businesses that promotes much of their unsafe products, nothing good will happen. Engage and urge your leaders to shift to healthy ways of life, and push for responsible use of sugar in products. Eventually, policies will emerge to cater to these concerns.
