4. Weight gain
It is never a pleasant surprise when we find that the sugary snacks we had a week ago have led to weight gain around the waist. But that is one of the outcomes of eating foods with high sugar content.
The excess sugar from snacks and sweets is usually stored as fat in the midsection. A high increase in your blood sugar levels induces insulin production, which converts these excess sugars into fatty acids and stores them as adipose tissue in your belly, thighs, or hips.
