Sugar can drain your energy during the day
Even if you do succeed in falling asleep, sometimes during the day you might find that you suffer from a lack of energy, leading to an inability to accomplish what you set out for the day. You might get down on yourself for being lazy or unmotivated, but if you're going to beat yourself up for something, don't let it be that - it's that you're eating so much sugar! That's right, it's not that you're just naturally a lazy person, but your diet can be thwarting your ability to accomplish what you need to due to a massive lack of energy. A major problem is how people often combat this slump in energy - drinking soda or coffee for the caffeine. While it might give you a momentary boost, the sugar will get you down even further in the long run.
