Are you the one who can’t think of a single day without eating your favorite chocolate? Do you love to have a red velvet pastry after dinner on a daily basis? Well, for now, you have to think twice before eating your favorite dessert frequently. Shocked? Let me clarify this in detail.
Regular eating of desserts not only opens the door of various dental problems, but it also deteriorates your overall health. It is simply because desserts contain sugars and regular consumption of sugar is not healthy (in fact poisonous) for our bones (according to recent research). I am also not saying that you should totally avoid sugar consumption. It’s just consumption of anything may lead to disaster.
Here are some of the detrimental effects of eating too much desserts:
Dental problems: Sugar-containing eatable items are chewed less and sucked more. As a result, your teeth will flow in sugar endlessly for a long time. Sugar also invites multiple bacteria towards it which is a major cause of endless dental problems.
Liver problems arise: Once sugar enters the bloodstream, it goes to the liver for getting broken down. An excessive amount of sugar needs to over processing of liver that may lead to fatty liver diseases.
The heart gets also affected: Sugar also affects the blood circulation of your body, resulting in cholesterol problems, increasing insulin and glucose level, and sometimes heart failure.
Other health-problems: Your skin will eventually get premature wrinkles, dark circles, and pimples on your face as too much sugar ages the cells.
In simple words, the answer is no. You should not eat desserts on a daily basis.
Dessert encompasses so many different types of sweets. Of the more sugary decadent side, desserts can be pies, cakes, cookies, candies, ice creams, and a range of sugar-loaded confections. These desserts tend to not only be filled with sugar, but they are also loaded with carbs as well, which is converted to sugars (which eventually is stored as fat) if not used as energy in the body. While eaten in moderation, they are okay. However, if eaten every day, they can take a toll on the body’s ability to digest food properly, and in some cases, lead people to develop other conditions (being overweight).
On the healthier side, fruit is a great substitution for sweet snacks. Produce eaten naturally is probably the best option. While dried fruit and fruit preserves are natural sugars, sometimes manufacturers will add sugar to both to keep the products fresh, so they might not always be the best option. Finally, modern cooking technology has found ways to make even the most sinful desserts healthy. For example, vegans often make brownies from black beans to avoid using flour to make this particular confection. Applesauce is a great substitute for eggs in making cakes and fruit breads.
To answer the question, because of the various dessert types (including fruit) and the variations on making these desserts (substitutions), a person can very well indulge in desserts that incorporates both natural fruits and the decadent stuff, not eating too much of the latter.
