Candy, Tasty or Fattening?

Almost everyone has loved candy or some form of candy in their lifetime.
We are going to look at why candy is bad for your body.

1. Weight gain:
Candy is full of empty calories that can't be burnt off quickly.
40% off the sugar of the candy we gobble away turns to fat!

2. Reduces Nutrient Intake:
The consumption of candy and sugar wears on the body and causes your body to not consume the vitamins and good nutrients that it needs.

3. Tooth Decay:
We all know about this one.
Tooth decay is prevalent in our society as crawls into our lives via suckers, candy bars, licorice, and other candies.
Candy deprives your body of calcium that is needed for healthy bones and teeth.

4. Candy Increases the Risk of Disease:
Sugar in candy takes calcium away from the body, making it easier to contract osteoporosis.
Sugar lowers your immune system considerably as it takes more energy to consume and digest it.

Candy and candy bars are terrible for your body's health.

Sugar converts to fat immediately.
Try some dried fruit, fruit, and occasionally a swig of natural fruit juice to curb the candy cravings.
Having just passed up Halloween not too long ago, many people in the world are fatter now than they have ever been.
Try to keep yourself from eating candy and sugar, just for the heck of it!
Have a great morning!
