Did you know that the average American consumes approximately 100 pounds of sugar and high-calorie foods yearly? Just about half of these calories comes from soda, fruit drinks, and alcohol. How can you support your digestive and pancreas health? Try Reflexology to help manage sugar craving while supporting your digestion.


What is Sugar?

Sugar is one type of carbohydrate, along with fiber and starch. Carbohydrates are essential macronutrients naturally found in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. In contrast, table sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and other sweeteners are added to produce processed foods and beverages. 


The average American consumes approximately 17 teaspoons (71.14 grams) of sugar per day, far exceeding the recommended limits of 24 grams for women, 36 grams for men, and 48 grams for children. For your health, it is important to be mindful of your natural and added sugar intake and make conscious choices to reduce your consumption of all sugars.


What Happens to your Pancreas when You Overeat?

The pancreas is the only organ with two functions: It aids digestion and produces endocrine hormones that release insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream, two important hormones responsible for regulating glucose, lipid, and protein metabolism.

If your pancreas function is weak, instead of turning sugar into an energy source, it accumulates as fat in the pancreas. This fat buildup can become the seed of type 2 diabetes and other health problems such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, dental issues, increased triglycerides, and obesity.


Make a Sugar Decision

When it comes to sugar consumption, deciding which type and how much to consume is a personal choice. Various factors influence how much Sugar one should consume, including age, activity level, calorie expenditure, and energy needs. Opting for healthy eating involves learning how to read food labels. It’s important to avoid using sugar as an emotional crutch or consuming it out of boredom.


Which Sugar is Better to Consume

The body processes added and natural sugars the same way, but the body processes natural sugar slower than the added sugar due to soluble fiber, and it also has a stable metabolism over time. On the other hand, added sugar enters your bloodstream faster and spikes your insulin levels.
