What If You Only Ate Sugar?

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

Everyone has their favorite candy and sweets chocolate gummies lollipops everyone loves a sweet treat now and again but can you imagine what it'd be like if you could eat your favourite treats for a week straight the average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of

Added sugar per day that it means anything that's not naturally in foods but the American Heart Association recommends that you limit your added sugar to only six teaspoons for women and nine teaspoons for men but why sugar

Tastes so good wouldn't a full week of nothing but sugar be fun sugar is made of sucrose a simple carbohydrate that has calories your body needs to burn for energy sucrose once ingested he's broken down by an enzyme in the body into two

Parts glucose and fructose the glucose passes through the liver and then is sent directly to the cells in the body and burned for energy the fructose gets broken down and used for energy but is also stored in fat cells called

Adipocytes sugar in high enough doses can be toxic to the body the dose depends on how much you weigh the average adult in the u.s. weighs about 180 pounds and about thirteen point five grams of sugar per pound is the deadly

Dose that's around five point four pounds of sugar or 262 pieces of candy but it would be difficult to consume all that sugar at once so what about having it spread out over several days the first one to three days

Won't be that bad you won't notice much difference in your mood however you will be hungry because sugar is really just a carbohydrate it doesn't have any of the fat protein vitamins or minerals that your body needs to function sugar not

Only tastes good but when you eat it your body tells you that you'd want more when you consume it the sugar spikes insulin levels and hormones that trigger a reward center in your brain as the sugar gets broken down that feeling

Fades away and your body just craves more and more in other words sugar is addictive but because it's just a simple carbohydrate it's not nourishing so it just makes you hungry so the first thing you'll notice is that the candy tastes

Great but you'll still be ravenous all the time by the fourth day you might start to feel a little fatigued have some trouble concentrating at normally easy and most of all you'll be really really

Hungry eating nothing else but sugar deprives your body of essential vitamins and nutrients so over time your red blood cell count will plummet as scurvy can set in due to lack of vitamin C and it will eventually start to rot your

Teeth all of this won't happen by day five but you will definitely start to feel some of the effects of a nutrient deficient diet you'll start to have trouble sleeping you'll feel weak fatigued and your concentration will

Only get worse not to mention the stomach problems since you're not getting any fiber you'll begin to have some serious bathroom blues you might even suffer from some very painful stomach aches by day seven you'll be

Downright sluggish and eating the candy and sugar will only make you more hungry it will be difficult to walk because your legs will be shaking from lack of strength you'll be more tired than ever and your cognitive functioning will be

Absolutely shot you could probably survive on sugar for a month or two if you had access to clean water as well but you won't feel good other symptoms will begin to creep up and the symptoms you've already

Experienced will only continue to get worse joker will begin to ruin your teeth by destroying the good bacteria in your mouth it will wreak havoc on your brain and digestive system and it can trigger some pretty deadly diseases

Including heart disease diabetes and even cancer but let's say you're not eating only candy one of the big problems with our modern diets is that sugar is in a lot of other foods besides candy it's in ketchup

Pastas salad dressings and even a lot of pre-made savory dishes you wouldn't expect like pizza and pad thai most people have way too much sugar in their diets and are feeling some of the bad side effects even without eating only

Sugar for a week straight but is there any kind of sugar that's okay for you naturally occurring sugars and fruits are better for you because they also come with vitamins nutrients and fiber but in the end this sugar has the same

Effect on the body as refined added sugars so consume everything even fruit in moderation so will you die from eating sugar for a week straight no probably not however you aren't going to feel good and the worst part after a

Week of candy you might never want to candy again remember it's a treat for a reason
