Sugar's Sweet Game of Deceit

By Nicky Vanvalkenburgh

Did you have a fun Halloween? Now that "Trick or Treat is over, kids are devouring their stashes of candy. Are you tempted to eat the candy yourself? The yummy chocolate bars, candy corn and gummies are hard to resist. If you need a little help or motivation to stay away from treats, consider the following:

1. Don't kid yourself; candy is addictive!

Like potato chips, it's hard to eat just one piece of candy. Have you ever noticed the "lust that candy triggers? You eat one piece, and rage sets in. You want more candy. You must have it! You'll do anything to get it. The urge is hard to resist.

The reason that candy triggers "lust is because the manufacturers have added taste enhancers that cause you to crave more and more. The reason they do is to get you physically addicted to their products. Of course, when you continue to eat and buy more candy, it's good repeat business for them.

2. Candy is a sweet-talking moocher!

Nothing is worse than a freeloader. A moocher takes from you, and never gives back. Unfortunately, candy leeches vitamins and minerals from your body. To digest sugar, you need B-complex vitamins, calcium and magnesium. Complex carbohydrates (raw fruit and vegetables) contain enough of these nutrients to digest and convert into energy. However, simple refined sugars (white or brown) are difficult to digest. Your body must rob its own resources to digest them.

Where are these nutrients leeched? Vitamin B-complex is taken from your central nervous system. Calcium is robbed from your teeth and bones.

Over time, eating sugar will result in Vitamin-B deficiency. This will cause you to suffer from nervousness, forgetfulness, fatigue, anxiety, rage, depression, indigestion, lack of appetite, craving for more sweets, neuralgia and neuritis, muscle soreness, headaches, insomnia, and dizziness.

3. Sugar weakens your immune system.

When you eat sugar, it weakens your white blood cells, which are an important part of your immune system. White blood cells protect your body from foreign invaders (such as cancer cells) who attack your body and try to make you sick. When white blood cells are weak, they don't have the strength to fight back. In other words, they can't do their job. Ultimately, eating candy weakens your immune system.

Are you ready to fight back?

Being aware of the hidden dangers of sugar will motivate you to get fresh. That's right; push that candy away. Just say no. Reach for something that is good for you. Bite into a tart green "Granny Smith apple, eat a handful of juicy berries, a tangy tangerine, or fresh cut pineapple.

Keep healthy alternatives on hand so that you can resist candy. If you can't give it up, limit yourself to a small portion. Throw the rest away! Change your focus, so that you can resist those sweet-talking, good-for-nothings who only end up hurting you. Decide in advance that you'll be the one getting fresh... now that you're wise to sugar's sweet little game of deceit.
