7. Skin Problems
Acne breakouts, dry skin, dark circles under the eyes and many other skin problems can occur due to your habit of eating sugary foods.
Sugar has an inflammatory effect on the body, so it contributes to inflammatory skin problems.
Plus, high sugar intake leads to a process known as glycation, which can accelerate the aging process and make your skin more likely to sag and develop wrinkles.
8. Getting Sick Frequently
Another sign that you are eating too much sugar is a tendency to get sick more often.
Sugar intake has a negative impact on the immune system. It competes with vitamin C for space in your white blood cells, resulting in weakened immunity.
When your immune system is weak, your body is less able to fight off harmful microbes and you are more vulnerable to the common cold, flu and other infections.
Additionally, sugar intake is linked to vascular damage due to high blood sugar levels. This can have a negative effect on blood circulation in the body and inhibit healing of wounds and cuts.
