“Your HORMONAL Response to Sugar”Just what happens after you eat sugar?
Well right of the bat your blood sugar levels rise rapidly. To bring blood sugar levels down your body excretes hormones… particularly insulin and other androgenic hormones.
These hormones signal your body’s cells to upon up their “doors” and let the sugar in.
The primary places blood sugar goes is the cells of the liver and the cells that make up the muscles. They “fill up” just like inflating a tire or filling up a water balloon.
But what happens when they are all full to capacity?
Well, any excess blood sugar is then converted by your liver into long chain fats (basically LARD). This “lard” is then transported to your fat cells and stored as fat.
The End Effect of Consuming EXCESS Sugar
Sugar, unlike other more complex starches, raises blood sugars rapidly. It is metabolized (“burned”) very quickly in your system. It spikes blood sugar levels in direct proportion to how much you ingest at one time.
The more you ingest the greater the spike in blood sugar levels.
This spike in blood sugar causes your body to excrete a SURGE of hormones all at one time.
It also causes a surge of high blood fats (LARD) all at one time.
So the end effect is it overwhelms your system with hormones and blood fats.
All these excess androgenic hormones cause your skin sebum glands to go into hyper drive… producing way too much skin oil. Add to that the excess blood fats floating around and the end results is aggravation of an already existing acne condition.
So if sugar aggravates acne then why can some people eat all the sugar in the world yet still have flawless skin?
Great question…. now you’re thinking grasshopper….
Why Sugar Aggravates Acne in Some and NOT in Others
Here’s the missing piece to the sugar acne relationship you’ve been looking for…
Ingesting too much sugar alone will not aggravate acne. It’s only when you overwhelm the liver with excess hormones that acne will flare.
The liver is what “deactivates” and “clears” excess hormones from your system.
But it only has so much capacity to do that.
So the reason sugar aggravates your acne, while your friend can eat all the sugar they want and still not get acne is because there liver function is much stronger.
Their liver is able to quickly “deactivate” and “clear” any excess hormones. So they never sufferer hormonal imbalance. And they never sufferer from acne.
But you’re liver capacity in this regard is significantly “shackled”. That’s why even a little bit of sugar can aggravate your acne.
