Protect your body! Beware of monosaccharides!
Thank you Taylor for this article!


Why should you eat sugar in moderation?

There are many reasons why refined sugar is bad for you.

The main reason I want to talk about today is, YOUR GUT.

Your gut contains approx. 10 times the amount of bacteria than you have cells in your body. As you know, that’s A LOT.

A study from the University of Washington, concludes that, “We humans are mostly microbes [ bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses]. We contain over 100 trillion of them. Microbes outnumber our cells 10 to 1. The majority live in our gut- mainly the large intestines”.

Of course, there is both good and bad microbes in our gut. It is when we start to develop more bad bacteria than good, that problems arise.

      2. They will look back and wonder:) In Germany, there is a law that makes companies label the sugar they used (and how much) – but that only makes them use more unhealthy sweeteners.

        Have a lovely evening

    Great post.

  3. Great post. My husband was just talking about how eating Halloween candy might have made him lethargic. I knew sugar was bad but was not aware just how bad it is for you. Thanks for this very informative article. Love 💕 Joni

    1. Isn’t it good? Taylor wrote very well – sometimes I read it through again just to remind myself and keep my nutrition as sugar-free as possible. And I can totally relate to what your husband said:) I get the same sugar-shock after Christmas😋

      Have a great day
