Avoid White Sugar and Fructose


White refined sugar is the primary cause of degenerative disease in our contemporary society. Sugar taken every day in processed foods produces a constantly over-acidic condition in your body, requiring more and more vitamins and minerals from deep in your body attempting to correct the equilibrium.

After years of having this continual, over-acidic condition, as well as vitamin/ mineral depletion, it is highly improbable that some form of degenerative disease will not present itself. During the process of permanent sugar consumption, especially with today’s processed foods, excess sugar is stored in the liver in the form of glucose until the complete capacity of the liver to do so is reached.

White Sugar

During this process, the liver becomes rather enlarged, and excess glucose is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids, which are stored in the dormant muscular areas of the body. This is everywhere that people gain weight (stomach, buttocks, breasts, thighs, etc).

When these areas have been filled to capacity, the fatty acids are then sent to organs (heart, kidneys, etc), which causes them to start a procedure of degeneration. Abnormal blood pressure begins to occur, the brain functions are affected, the structural value of the cellular structures within the blood decline, an overabundance of white cells occurs, formation of new tissue declines, and the immune system is affected.

Obesity Lowers Testosterone

Obesity
Most women dislike fat men, and excess adipose tissue interferes with metabolic health that is responsible for erections and testosterone levels. Researchers from Australia concluded that overweight men often have lower levels of testosterone and the biologically-active free testosterone. To make matters worse, age-linked declines in testosterone take place faster in overweight and obese men.
Obesity increases risk factors linked to low testosterone levels, such as obstructive sleep apnea, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Excess body fat, predominantly in the abdomen, interferes with hormones that manage the reproductive system and decreases sperm quality. Weight loss increases testosterone and free testosterone and improves sexual health. The general conclusion is that obesity is bad for your sex life.
