Lose Weight, Feel Better –Sugar Detox In Just 3 Days!
Surplus weight is not just from consuming carbohydrates and fat but also from sugar. If you consume sugar every occasionally you’re not at risk, but if you’re like most then you’re probably consuming a lot more sugar than you realize. Sugar is added in just about everything, some items are sodas, cereals, salad dressing, yogurts , breads, etc. Some natural things also have sugar like honey, pure fruit juices, raisins, mangos, banana and many other foods.
If you have ever experienced a sugar overdose then you know that the symptoms are hyperactivity, fatigue, yeast infections, headaches, depression, colds, sinuses, sleepiness and mental disorientation. Sugar overload can cause many other problems like a high risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and more likely breast cancer.
The relation between sugar and weight gain
If we consume a lot of sugar, the body uses the needed amount for energy boost, while the rest is being stored as fat. It is important to know the difference between added and natural sugar. Added sugar goes to the intestines and the body reacts to it as an intestinal bacterium and increases the blood sugar levels, which ultimately results in fat in the waist, hips, and thighs area.
Even though it might sound impossible, avoiding sugar consumption is doable. When you stop consuming sugar you will begin to have withdrawal symptoms like sadness, headaches ,fatigue and cravings. The cravings tend to occur after consuming a meal and when the body tells the brain that you are hungry again. This is when we go for something sweet. Don’t stop consuming sugar all at once as it will lead you to want more off it and you’ll just up consuming more, cut a little out at a time. Don’t be aware when you begin feeling strong cravings for sugar in first couple of days as this is completely normal and will eventually go away.
