Founder and ideological inspirer of the project’s Taste & Color, the adept of a healthy diet and lifestyle
50 years ago the average Russian eats 15 kg of sugar per year, and today more than 45. Proportionally increased the number of diseases Oncology (if the body has cancer cells, sugar promotes their active growth), diabetes and obesity.
It turns out that sugar lowers the immune system in 17 times! The mechanism is simple: glucose substitutes, the vitamin C in the body, and saturated them cells — phagocytes. But they, like a vacuum cleaner, needs to absorb viruses, bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms constantly attacking a person. Glucose, once in the body, is simply not giving life-saving cells to do their work, slowing their reactions to 75%.
More sweet — ass fatter
It happens that the next morning after a hearty feast with cakes and other Goodies stomach howling from hunger, despite the fact that before you ate more than one serving. On the “car” of sugar that was consumed yesterday, dumped the pancreas insulin and glucose levels dropped sharply. So formed addiction to candy, the brain has received the signal about the alarming situation and launched a hunger signal to the endocrine system, demanding another serving of sweet. Each time old portions will be small, and mesogenic calories will be stored as fat.
Hollywood smile and a good mood, good-bye!
Of caries in people who love sweet, is found in several times more often than those who avoid it. Because glucose is still and prevents the absorption of calcium. Sweet tooth is constantly under a feeling of irritation, fatigue, mood swings. All about vitamin b to metabolize large amounts of sugar, the body “shakes” vitamin C of all organs and systems. A deficiency of vitamin b affects the mental balance and worsens the condition of the heart muscle.
Sugar — the enemy of youth
And sugar we age, is rapidly and irreversibly. This occurs when the glucose in the body is combined with proteins, forming a viscous liquid. In fact, it is the toxins that envelop cells and do not allow them to perform nature intended function. This is particularly harmful glucose-protein compounds “attacked” collagen, which is responsible for firmness and skin density, as well as for clear oval face.
Sugar is a drug for happiness
Rumor has it that by 2020 the sugar we want to equate to easy drug. Scientists have proved that sweet is addictive is akin to cocaine and heroin. An experiment was conducted with rats, when animals received one drug, while others were given a sweet tooth: they both came back with the same constancy for more.
Today 75% of the products on the market contain sugar, it is even in ketchup and sausage. It is added not only to stabilize the taste, but for the occurrence of the same dependencies, so we bought the product. Sweet makes us happy, because glucose makes you produce endorphins, dopamine and serotonin: ate a chocolate bar or two- you can live on. We are not so important, then what happens to the glucose spike, which in turn will lead to lack of energy, eating another chocolate bar and circuit circles. Sports, love, traveling, hand made — everything that gives us happiness, can be a great alternative to sweets.
Sugar, I replace you!
People who eat irregularly and incorrectly, more likely to be dependent on sweets. Not surprising: when the body lacks carbohydrates, we automatically fill this shortage sweet. But if you start eat a healthy diet, eat vegetables, grains, fruits, a sweet not even look like. The main thing — to create the right diet because we can get sugar in a natural way, for example, of fruit.
To make sure your body is all right, hand over the analysis on glycated hemoglobin. Normally it should be less than 5.7%. If your higher — slagging of the organism that threatens your health. So eating a must follow! Remember that it is much healthier to eat large portion of vegetables than fat-free yogurt, glass of juice and a muffin.

It is a wholly vaccinated against sakharozameniteli.
