While not all sugar is bad for you, overconsuming could lead to weight gain and even some health conditions, like heart disease (2)(3). That’s why it’s important to watch your sugar intake and why it’s considered a biohack. By simply cutting back on all the sweet stuff, you could also help maintain your blood sugar levels, which then helps sustain your energy levels for the day. More energy equals more drive to have a productive, healthy day.
