First, let’s just define: sugar itself is not evil. The problem is that today it is added in almost all food, even milk. Excess sugar in our diet leads to chronic fatigue, overweight, irritability, and perhaps depression.

Second, you can’t give up sugar completely. At least because of all the processed products in supermarkets anyway contain it. But you can give up sugar in tea and coffee and it will be a great solution. I need to know where to start!

Here are five benefits that you will receive.

1. You will become more energetic.

Most of us drink sweet coffee and probably eats some donuts when feeling tired and overwhelmed. Someone who likes energy drinks. But this habit actually takes your energy rather than gives it.

The principle here is this: when you eat or drink sweet blood instantly increases the level of glucose and you feel a surge of energy. But the effect passes quickly – literally in about 15 minutes. And you feel fatigue and irritability, but also stronger than before.

To break this vicious circle is only one way: caffeine – to drink, but without sugar. Then the differences of the level of sugar in the body will cease to spoil to you mood and reduce tone.

2. Your weight stabiliziruemost

There is also talk about a vicious circle. If you just ate something sweet, it takes quite a bit of time, and the body will require more. And this will require “more aggressive” than before. That’s why scientists say that sugar is addictive like drug.

All know that sugar triggers the appetite. Tried to perekusyvaete “Sneakers”? How quickly started to want to eat again? This. Drink tea without cookies and without sugar and you can break this vicious circle.

3. Your bowels will work twice as effective. Sugar is harmful, but the fiber useful. If you substitute sweets for fruits or vegetables, and tea and coffee start drinking without sugar, your digestive system will thank you. Metabolism will be accelerated, you will be more likely to go to the toilet and faster return to normal life.

4. You will no longer crave sweets

It’s a fact: the more sugar you eat, the more you want to eat it. Over and over again. In the end, this vicious circle can break down your life. The principle here is the same as in the case of drugs: to have fun, you need to increase the “dose”.

Eliminate sugar from hot drinks – and you’ll notice that they started to eat less cookies, donuts and waffle. It may take several months and you will be shocked: first of seemingly delicious cakes and pastries seem cloyingly sweet.

5. Your skin will look more healthy.

Pimples and black spots will gradually go. After a few months you will stop buying in such quantities as today, creams, ointments and balms for the skin. It is a fact.

Are you ready to begin detox and to abandon the use of sugar in its pure form?

The sooner you begin to learn new habits, the faster you will reap the fruits of their success. Who says we should consume in the form of sugar not more than 5% of daily calories.

Start small. Pay attention to what you eat and drink. How much sugar is in this? Give all I can give. Will need quite a bit of time and you will start to adapt.

Remember: in order to get used to a new diet takes only about three weeks. Then you will be comfortable without sugar. You will love their mugs with bitter coffee and weak tea.Source:

The project “Olgushka” is an attempt to dispel this stereotype, broaden our understanding of the age, to create an image attractive for the elderly. The blog explores the features of national color, the relationship between age and style of the older generation living in Russia. Deliberately or accidentally, they create original images, based on feelings, intuition and past experience. This series is a collective portrait of our older compatriots, retaining a sense of style in spite of circumstances and the representations on old age. This generation of long lived in conditions of shortage and the political regime, suppress any expression of individuality.

99% of your genetic code is exactly the same as everyone else on the planet. Your genes determine the color of skin, gender, hair color and presence or absence of genetic diseases. But the remaining 1% makes all the more interesting. Specific genetic variations allow some of us have unusual features. This is how genes can determine superpowers.

  • ACTN3 and sprint ability

    We all possess a gene called ACTN3, but some variations help the body produce a special protein called alpha-actinin-3. This protein controls the fast twitch muscle fibers, the cells responsible for high-speed tension and flexion of the muscles involved in sprinting or weightlifting. In 2008, when geneticists studied the outstanding sprinters and athletes, they found that very few of them had two defective copies of ACTN3, a gene dubbed “the sports gene”.

  • hDEC2 and features sleep

    Imagine what you would feel superengine after only four hours of sleep. Some people are from nature. These people are called “melepasmu”, and only recently have scientists discovered the answer to the question what is causing such a low need for sleep. In most cases this ability is associated with a specific gene mutation hDEC2. This means that this feature is often inherited. Scientists hope to better study this phenomenon, so that in the future to turn the idea of the necessary amount of sleep.

  • TAS2R38 and taste sensations

    About a quarter of the world’s population can taste food more acutely than others. Such people are prone to adding milk and sugar into the bitter coffee and avoid fatty, oily food. This reaction, according to the researchers, programmed in their genetic code, in particular, in a gene called TAS2R38, which is responsible for perception of bitter taste. A variant of the gene combinations responsible for overly developed sense of taste, called PAV, and underdeveloped – AVI.

  • LRP5 and indestructible bones

    Bone fragility is a major health problem of our time. Researched identified the genetic mutation LRP5 gene that regulates the mineral density of bone tissue, which can lead to brittle and weak bones. Today, scientists have identified numerous mutations of the gene LRP5, related to bone health, including youth with primary osteoporosis. But a slightly different variant mutations of the same gene can lead to the opposite effect, giving some people a very strong, almost indestructible bones.

  • Invulnerability before malaria

    Suffering from sickle cell disease individuals (they have one sickle gene and one normal gene gemoglobiny) are more protected from malaria than others. Although this blood disorder is difficult to classify “supersposobnosti”, it may help science to make a breakthrough in the creation of means of struggle against malaria.

  • BDNF and SLC6A4 and super-consumers of coffee

    At least six different genes linked to how your body perceives caffeine. BDNF and SLC6A4 contribute to getting more pleasure from the taste of the coffee and are forced to consume it more and more. Other genes linked to how quickly the body metabolizes caffeine. Thus, there is nothing surprising in the fact that some people can actually drink a couple cups of strong coffee and, as if nothing had happened, go back to sleep.

  • CETP and low cholesterol

    Although the environment (including what we eat) and affects the level of cholesterol, genetics also plays an important role here. Mutation of the gene responsible for the production of a protein called CETP, leads to a deficiency of this protein in the body. This deficit is associated with the presence of a high level of “good” cholesterol that helps deliver cholesterol to the liver to bring it out of the body, which leads to low total cholesterol. Studies have also found a low prevalence of coronary heart disease among people with scarce a mutation of the CETP.

  • ALDH2*2 and super-blush

    Habit to blush after the slightest dose of alcohol that bring so much inconvenience to their owners, could be the result of the activity of the gene ALDH2. This mutation prevents the liver enzyme to convert the alcohol to acetaldehyde to acetate. When acetaldehyde accumulates in the blood, it promotes disclosure of capillaries, which is outwardly manifested as redness of the skin. Acetaldehyde is also considered a carcinogen, so drinkers are affected by this mutation are more likely to develop cancer of the esophagus.

To help skin be radiant and healthy you need to eat right.

Nutritionists advise to include in your diet 5 foods that are especially useful for skin:

– eggs. The amino acids contained in eggs, help to produce collagen, which is responsible for skin elasticity. Egg yolks are rich in cyanocobalamin – vitamin B12, which will help to smooth out wrinkles and protect the skin from the external environment.

– greens and green vegetables. Vegetables are rich in fiber, which improves peristalsis of the intestine. If your digestive tract works like a clock, no constipation and food therefore does not stagnate in the intestines, then there is putrefaction, which can affect the skin condition. Besides constantly eat greens, such as spinach, arugula, lettuce, sorrel helps the skin to remain elastic and its color lends a beautiful Golden color without any tan.

– med. If you can’t do without sugar, try replacing it with honey. It is useful, moreover is rich in various vitamins and trace elements. Just don’t add honey in the just-brewed tea – so lost its useful properties. Honey is also useful as an ingredient for face masks and wyomingensis walnut. Eating every day a guest of almonds (30 grams), you will neutralize the harm that has on the body free radicals. Are molecules in which one atom has an unpaired electron. Too high content of free radicals in the body negatively affects him, causing various pathological processes and diseases. In almond nut fatty acids, which help skin to remain hydrated and contribute to wrinkles.
