With all the processed food available, it's difficult to know the amount of sugar our blood ends up accumulating. Too much sugar can lead to a very serious disease we've all heard of — diabetes.
If you notice these three factors in your body, it's time to make a change in your nutrition habits:
1. Feeling hungry all the time
Feeling hungry throughout the day (even after you have eaten) indicates excess sugar in the bloodstream. If you notice excess or frequent hunger throughout your day, it's time to make a positive change in your diet.
No matter how much water you drink, that dry mouth feeling just won't go away. This is an important sign that your body needs to detox and cleanse. Keep drinking water and cut back the excess processed sugar you're consuming.
3. Going to the bathroom more often
The body eliminates toxins through urine, and needing to use the bathroom more than usual could mean your body is trying to get rid of excess sugar.
Although these are common symptoms of high blood sugar, they could also be related to other health issues, such as anxiety. Listen to your body and make sure you're giving it what it needs.
If your body is warning you of high blood sugar, here are some things you can do to change your lifestyle:
Decrease processed foods, such as crackers, white bread, potatoes, soft drinks, juices and treats
Decrease over-the-counter medication like pain-relievers
