Adding several pounds to your weight is mostly caused by carbohydrates and fats, but you may not know that sugar is a great culprit, too.
You are not at risk if you consume sugar in moderate amounts, but people consume plenty of sugar without even knowing it. Nowadays, sugar is added in many foods and drinks, such as sodas, breakfast cereals, pouch juices, salad dressings, yogurts and candy.
Sugar is part of some foods, such as honey, pure fruit juice, raisins, mangos, and bananas, which are classified as simple carbohydrates.
Extra sugar has many negative side-effects like: hyperactivity and consequent fatigue, depressive moods, yeast infections, colds, headaches, sinus problems, disorientation and sleeplessness. Also, chronic overconsumption sugar can raise the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, and even breast cancer.
