Sugar and stress

Post by zyshopper » Wed Aug 06, 2014 5:49 am

Was quite surprised by some articles I read but now starting to believe they are true. Before i was addicted to sweets especially chocolate for its endorfines as had much stress but their cure effect lasted not long. And as the swing of pendulum the mood comes to be even lower. So just a tip - better fruits. They say the thing is that in sweets we receive fast carbohydrates which easy to be digested but after quick energy outbreak people become in lower phase again. Good luck

We consume high sugar levels every day as part of our main course, dessert and in snacks. There can’t be a cup of tea without a teaspoon of sweetness or how could you refuse the tempting piece of chocolate cake every once in a while.

And you know what tops all of that? Deep fried and glowing orange jalebi in a glass of milk for days which rain endlessly. We Pakistanis know every sweet object that should be served for each possible occasion. But in this rundown of high sugar drives, we tend to ignore the burden our body gets to bear and the doctors get a kick out of it (only natural!).

Sugar may grant you the sweetness in your mouth for a count of 15 minutes, but it is also toxic to your cells for the same amount of time. And toxins are popular in making us dysfunctional and unhealthy. Before you put that final teaspoon of sugar in your cup of tea, here are quick things you might want to note of why consuming excessive sugar is bad for you.

Stress is known to spike blood sugar, also called glucose. ... Cortisol and other hormones release a surge of energy in the form of glucose (sugar), which the body can use to fight or flee. That rush of glucose is no problem if your body's insulin response is working correctly.

Hmm... actually in terms of psychology, eating, especially eating sweet food is a way to prevent people from depression, or generally, thinking. I've heard that people often can't think properly when they're eating since eating creates distraction for the brain. And so, it's a common way of many depressed people for temporary reducing stress and stop worrying. The sad part is, eating can only temporarily stop the depression, in long term, depression and stress still continue (and it may be worse) unless the depressed people find someway to face it, rather than avoiding it.

If you have nothing useful to add, don't comment. I disapproved your request for a post promoting another site. If you make more trivial posts, I will no longer be so tolerant and you will be banned.
