I am 20 and addicted to sugar. The main source of my consumption is in the form of slurpees. I am seriously addicted. I have reduced my consumption to one 16oz Slurpee a day, and have tried to otherwise eat as little sugary foods as possible. I'm also trying to make sure that I make healthy choices (eg. not eating fast food). I do a lot of walking and rollerblade at least 3 times a week. Should I be concerned about drinking too much sugar? I don't need to lose weight (although I would like to have more muscles and less fat). Is there such thing as too much sugar? Can eating too much sugar along cause diebetes? Does my Slurpee-a-day regiment interfere with me replacing fat with muscle?
I wouldn't recommend Slurpees myself, but you can drink them and still be healthy. It's not possible to tell you whether you will meet your goals based just on the fact that you drink them, though. The remainder of your diet and your exercise program are also important.
yes, eating two much sugar can cause diabetes. especially in people with a genetic predisposition. but one slurpee per day will not kill you. relax and go easy on yourself. i'm sure if you are attempting to slightly limit processed sugars, you will be fine... i allow myself indulgences as well, and do fine with that
