Why I gave up Sugar, My Journey!

Sugar is bad for you a because it has calories, and because if you have diabetes or a diabetes-related condition — lets say high blood fat levels — then having sugar will increase your blood sugar and your triglycerides, which is a risk factor for heart disease. (Triglycerides are a type of fat in the blood.)

When you know better you do better. Knowledge is expensive but ignorance is deadly. Treat your body in the manner it was designed to be treated.
