The Effects of Staying Sugar-Free for 10 Days

by Daniel / Apr 25, 2017 / 0 comments

For many people, sugar is a must have. It is recommended that you take 25 grams or less of sugar every day. Unfortunately, most people do not adhere to this and they take even more than three times the recommended amount.

The bitter truth is, sugar kills and it is even worse than fat. Sugar is the main cause of obesity and a lot of chronic ailments such as depression, type 2 diabetes, heart diseases and even dementia. These facts should make you remove sugar from your diet but it is easier said than done.

What will happen to you if you stay sugar-free for 10 days?

Eliminating sugar from your diet can be hard but there are many benefits if you stay sugar-free for 10 days. They are as follows

You will realize how much sugar you consumed

Most of our foods are filled with sugar. Popular foods like breakfast cereals, granola bars and bagels have high sugar content. This will be an eye opening experience and you may avoid taking such foods ever again.

You will learn how to plan your meals

As you strike out sugar from your shopping list, you will start to buy healthy foods. Follow guides that will help you to do sugar-free shopping.

You will educate yourself

Popular foods and drinks such as doughnuts and sodas have high sugar content. But what you might not know is there are hidden sugars in almost every food. As you continue to stay sugar-free, you will know how to spot the foods with hidden sugars such as those disguised in titles such as glucose, corn syrup and maltose.
