5 Things That Happen When You Quit Eating Sugar
Let’s first start by saying that sugar in and of itself isn’t evil! It occurs naturally in plenty of food, including milk and fruits. Adding excess sugar to your daily intake simply isn’t necessary. In fact, you’ll notice numerous positive things happen when you decide to quit sugar for life. Giving up sugar sure sounds scary to me! I guess nobody said it would be easy!
If you do stop eating anything but naturally occurring sugars, you will notice that 5 very distinctive things will happen.
1. Your Energy Will Improve
Ironically, many of us have a tendency to reach for sugar filled items, including those energy drinks and caffeinated beverages when we are tired. Yet without all the sugar, we are guaranteed to have a higher energy level naturally. In other words, all that sugar is blocking our body’s ability to keep our energy stores at maximal levels. Plus, there will be no up and down with your blood sugar so afternoon crashes will become an thing of the past.
Have you noticed that you can’t seem to crack the case on why your acne appears and disappears despite all the creams, serums and ointments you’re using? It may be that sugar is hurting your skin from the inside out. Many people report that their skin feels and looks healthier after they stop giving in to sugar’s pull.
3. You Will Stop Wanting Sugar
I have to say that this is really true. After you rid sugar from your food regimen, you’ll slowly begin to lose the desire to eat anything with sugar in it. You will actually crave fruit and if you take a bite of chocolate or a cupcake, you will be amazed how overly sweet it seems and it may not even taste as good as you remembered.
4. Your Weight Will Stabilize
Sugar always makes you crave more sugar. Let’s face it…..most sugar comes in high-fat and/or high carb foods that have been processed or at least contain tons of GMO’s and unwanted ingredients. By going on a sugar detox, your body will not be subjected to all those additional calories. You also won’t feel hungry which will undoubtedly help you lose weight. Lose the sugar…..lose the pounds.
5. Your Intestines and Colon Will Perform More Efficiently
If your insides could tell you what they wanted on a daily basis, they would say lots of fiber and a minimum amount of tough to digest foods. When you remove sugar, you are enabling your bowels to reset their abilities to process what you have eaten. You may notice that you are able to go to the bathroom more often, which is a good thing. This means your body is working more efficiently.
Good luck in stopping the sugar cravings. Let us know how much better you feel when you stop consuming sugar!
