Sugar hangover is real. Before I used to think that hangover happens only from the excessive amount of alcohol but after not having any for more than half year, I experienced another type of hangover, sugar one. It sounds strange and maybe not so many people can relate but this is what happened to me.
Yesterday, I ate so much of mass-market chocolate, 4 bars to be exact. I don’t know what happened and why I did it. Nevertheless, today not only mentally I felt bad but physically as well. It was harder to wake up, my eyes were so slippy and mind very blurry. I felt like having a real hangover. I probably wouldn’t pay much attention to this situation but I was noticing for many months that every time I eat lots of sugar, the eyes feel tired and thinking processes not as sharp, everything feels foggy and unclear.
That is why today I decided to do my little research if such thing as Sugar Hangover even exist and I bumped to so many articles. In fact, I realized that lots of people experience similar thing after eating lots of sweets. Here are is the most common outcomes people experience,
- Foggy mind and blurred thinking
- Fatigue during the day
- Gas and bloating
- A headache
- Joint pain
- Skin problems
- Allergy symptoms
- Mood swings
So if you have some of these things after eating sweets or on the next day, now you know why. Sugar is truly dangerous when a person consumes more than 30 g a day. A little bit can be beneficial to the brain but lots of it is absolutely harmful. Moreover, sugar is more addictive than the majority of heavy drugs. So quitting it is almost impossible and controlling it is hard as well. It’s like if a person tries to control drug addiction, same happens with sugar.
