  1. The first sign that you are eating too much sugar is the skin, which takes on a dull complexion and often reacts with some pimple. Acne mainly affects women. In fact, the excessive consumption of sugar contributes to an imbalance of the female hormones during menstruation. In the long run, sugar damages collagen and elastin, leading to premature appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging.

  2. Why do we eat more and more? I mean, what gives us addition? For many people the absorption of sugar is related to stress, others don’t seem to have that much stress but are still attracted to it at the point of not control.

  3. @Mauren Lange Taste buds quickly adapt to the large quantities of sugar we eat. So to feel the “sweet” we need to eat more and more. In short, sugar acts like drugs or alcohol. With the result that what seemed to us sweet before, with the passage of time will no longer be.
