Sugar is everywhere! You can’t avoid it! You can’t run from it! It’s enticing, addictive, and really not that good for you when you think about it. It’s loaded with carbs and just about everything you consume throughout the day has some kind of sugar added to it. But like everything, if you have too much of it in your system, it can have some rather nasty side effects. So here are some indications that you might be overdosing on sugar.
#1. When you think about what you eat every day, you realize that sugar is a part of your diet.
It’s in your cereal, or maple syrup for your waffles in the morning. It’s in your soft drink when you’re at lunch, and obviously in candy, which you have plenty of to get through the work day.
#2. An excess of sugar in your bloodstream can lead to all kinds of physical symptoms.
Among them are those dreadful headaches that feel like someone has taken a sledge hammer to the inside of your skull. In most cases, it’s no different than the symptoms of a hangover.
#3. Sugar lacks any of the necessary nutritional values you so desperately need.
You won’t find any protein or fiber in your sugar intake, but what you will get is plenty of excess calories that will lead to some serious weight gain, even if you exercise.

#4. But weight gain doesn’t always occur with too much sugar in your bloodstream.
For just a short period of time, you may notice a weight loss caused by frequent urination, which is common when your glucose levels are high. It can temporarily increase your glucose metabolism.
