What Are The Benefits Of A Sugar Detox?

by Jackie on March 9, 2017

Most people eat far too much sugar. It is difficult to avoid it as sugar is added to most foods, and it can be addictive too. A sugar detox will help stop cravings. Other benefits may include weight loss, higher energy levels and better digestion.

If you are used to reaching for something sweet when you feel low on energy, you might notice that your energy levels are actually much higher after a detox. Those who suffer from digestive problems, such as bloating or gas, often notice an improvement after a sugar detox. You might also notice that your skin looks better after detoxing and your complexion is clearer.

A total detox means avoiding all types of sugar, including sugar that is added to foods and drinks. An easier way than a full detox is to reduce the amounts of sugar you eat daily. Avoid processed foods and snacks and sweetened soft drinks. If you crave for something sweet, eat fresh fruit or a small piece of dry fruit, and keep your blood sugar level stable by eating regular meals and snacking on nuts, seeds or other sugar-free snacks.

I'm a fitness nut. I know what you're thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I've gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started.
