Lose 30 lbs with This 7-Day Sugar Detox Menu Plan

At this point, we are all wary of how bad sugar is for our overall well-being, but it seems that we cannot ditch it anyway.

However, it is almost impossible to avoid sugar, since it’s a common ingredient in nearly all foods that we consume every day. And the sad part about it is that it’s highly addictive.

Excessive consumption of sugar increases the levels of dopamine much the same as other drugs like cocaine, according to one study from Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

The researchers state that long-term utilization of sugar will eventually prompt a reduction of dopamine levels. Hence, in order to avoid lenient states of depression and reach the same results, people need to consume even more sugar than usual, scientists explain.

If you can’t seem to resists that lovely smell of the chocolate cake, you are most likely a sugar addict.

Here are the most important reasons as to why you should be distinct from sugar in spite of everything:

  • Has no nutrition value whatsoever
  • It’s very addictive
  • Increases the serotonin levels
  • May engender gallstones
  • Subdues the immunity
  • Triggers adrenal fatigue
  • Produces ulcers
  • Weakens the eyesight
  • Prompts hypoglycemia
  • Can cause arthritis
  • Causes premature aging
  • It could promote cancer
  • Leads to heart problems
  • Induces eczema
  • It drains your energy
  • Depletes the minerals from the body
  • Raises the risks of diabetes

These are the same reasons we want to provide you with a splendid sugar detox menu which will help you control and eventually overcome your addiction. Check it out!
