It's time to talk about the sweet stuff — yep, sugar! Sure, you've heard it all before, "Sugar makes you fat!" "Sugar is the devil" but knowing the actual reasons why is the best way to understand why sugar — despite it's addictive taste — isn't good for you.

We spoke to Nik Toth, creator of the Lean Body Formula and the convo started a little like this, "I'm not in the habit of lying to people, I am going to come right out and say it. Sugar is unnecessary," admits Nik, honestly.

Looking at history and human physiology it's pretty clear we evolved without eating sugar on the reg. Back in the good ol' caveman days, sugar was consumed in the form of seasonal fruit and honey. Nowadays sugar is present in almost everything we eat and drink. According to Nik, while there are different types of sugar in food, fructose (the naughty one) has the biggest impact on our waistlines and health because our bodies can't metabolise it well — it goes straight to the liver, which immediately stores it as body fat. "From there it contributes to obesity, abnormal lipid profiles and chronic illnesses such as diabetes," says Nik. "Over time it wears out our insulin stores — it is highly addictive, it damages our arteries and raises cholesterol."

It Messes With Hunger Hormones

Hate to pick on fructose but it not only increases our fat levels, but also messes with our hunger hormones. Nik admits the troublesome result is an inability to tell whether we are hungry or full. "Unlike with proteins or fats, where our brain tells us to stop eating, fructose flies under the radar and we never get a signal to stop," says Nik. That's why it is so easy to over-indulge in sweet treats.

When you should quit : So, let me be the first to say that there is no one -size-fits-all answer to this question, but here is what I know to be true What will get worse if you stay? There are situations where your health or your family is so negatively impacted by your work that you need to move on for

When you are down and want to quit , think about all the things you have accomplished before. You will be the same. You need to understand that setbacks and obstacles are necessary. Your income will never run too far from that figure . Who you talk to and who you mix with count.

According to Nik, this is how it works: When you eat sugar, first your blood sugar levels rise. Then your pancreas has to dump insulin into the blood supply to bring the sugar levels back to normal so that the high blood sugar levels don’t cause havoc on your entire system. Once this happens, you experience the "crash", which often leaves you craving more carbs because your blood sugar levels just lowered.

It Can Destroy Your Gut Bacteria

True story! Our digestive tract houses nearly two kilograms of bacteria, ideally with a balance of good and bad. "Sugar feeds the bad bugs, creating a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, pathogens and fungus," says Nik. Yes, that’s right — fungus! And for many women that means reoccurring yeast infections.

According to Nik, once your gut bacteria goes out of balance and the bad guys take over, you can experience poor digestive function, bloating, gas, yeast infections and not-to-mention a stronger urge for sugar. If these symptoms are all too familiar, it’s important to balance your gut and restore good bacteria in the digestive tract. Symptoms should go away for good, and losing body fat will become a whole lot easier too.

Always remember . . . "The gut is our second brain. What goes on inside the gut has a direct effect on how we look, feel and think," says Nik.
