There are nine signs that you are eating a lot of sugar

8. Energy highs and lows

Glucose is responsible for the energy supply in your body, which why it’s very important to keep the level of sugar in your blood at a proper level. Any deviation from this may lead to energy yo-yo-ing throughout the day. When you eat sweets, the pancreas releases insulin to help bring glucose to the cells leaving you with a rush of energy. Once the cycle ends, you feel the level of energy drop because your body wants more sugar.

To maintain your energy levels, avoid eating sweets and unhealthy snacks. Instead, opt for lean proteins and healthy fats. Get “real” energy for your body from healthy foods. This more even level of sugar in your blood won’t cause energy spikes and dips.
