How Sugar Plays Havoc on You

You have probably heard about eating less sugar to live a healthier lifestyle. That isn’t news, no matter how many times it is rehashed. Sugar plays havoc on your body from your joints to energy level. Here’s something else I found out the other day that I thought was worthy of sharing here…

It affects breathing. During the holidays I received an abundance of candy, cookies, cakes, fruit breads, brownies, fruitcakes, etc. Why is the holiday season so packed with sugary products in the U.S.? I never have understood that. I’ve prepared fruit-sweetened baked goods and given them as gifts in the past, but some of the feedback was not good. So I stopped and starting gifting homemade sugary foods, but with less sugar than the recipe called for. This season I took a steamed veggie platter to a potluck and had leftovers to take home. Back to the story…

I’ve never been much of a sweet eater, but may have partaken of one too many of these goodies – especially shortbread. One of my friends makes the best shortbread in the world, bar none. (Mine’s a close second, though). Another friend gave me enough cookies and mini cupcakes to feed a platoon. I froze most and will put them out at my next potluck. Still, who can resist homemade bread pudding? It was at a dessert party and too good to pass up.

Anyways, I cut back on eating sugar years ago when I noticed that eating foods that contained a large abundance of that ingredient played havoc on my knee joints, causing increased stiffness and pain. Plus, my energy level was lacking after the ‘sugar high’ left. What I have never realized, however, is what I noticed while swimming last week.

Suddenly, after swimming one lap I kept catching my breath. It was more difficult to fill up my lungs and diaphragm. It was the strangest feeling. Usually, my cardio gets a nice workout with a comfortably faster heart beat and clear breathing, but this was much more than that. It was not fun.

So..after weighing how my dietary intake had recently changed, I realized it must be the sugar. It was the only thing that was noticeably different.

Even though I am a firm believer in moderation being the key to success while eating a healthy meal plan, I have no one to blame but myself for partaking in that dessert party, the gift of homemade, department-sold candy and that scrumptious English shortbread.

Would I do it again? Only for the shortbread.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing. Have you had any similar experiences? Please share them so we can all learn together.
