It’s no secret that sugar is really bad for our health and creates disease within the body.

Even on the low-end of risk, indulging in sweet treats such as cakes or thanks to ‘hidden sugars’ in products like low-fat yogurts, excess sugar consumption can cause weight gain, energy crashes, and even wrinkles.

If you can’t get going in the morning without a sugary coffee, need a treat to boost your energy in the afternoon and have tried and failed to cut down on eating carbs, then you could be a sugar addict.
