Ice cream, candy, doughnuts --we know too much sugar is bad, but it tastes so good! (KFSN)

Ice cream, candy, doughnuts --we know too much sugar is bad, but it tastes so good! When you reduce sugar intake, big changes happen on the inside.

First, you will cut the visceral fat that is the "deep" fat that surrounds organs like the liver, intestine, and pancreas.

A 2016 study found the more sugar-sweetened drinks people consumed, the higher their levels of visceral fat.

Next, nixing sugar will protect your heart. One study found people who consumed the most amount of sugar had double the risk of death from heart disease.

Your skin will also look better if you consume less sugar. Too much sugar in the blood can lead to glycation: a process that leaves skin less firm and elastic.

Cutting back on sweets may also improve your mood! Women who ate fewer foods with added sugars were less likely to be depressed.

Less sugar could help you fight off colds. In one study, eating 100 grams of sugar lowered the body's white blood cells' ability to kill bacteria by as much as 50 percent!

So remember, while a little sugar is OK, your body will thank you if you do not overdo it!
