We all know that sugar is bad for our health but it seems that we can’t get around this toxic ingredient. It’s contained in almost anything we eat and the more we eat it the more we crave it. Eating sugar in high quantities increases our dopamine levels in the brain much like cocaine and studies show that consuming sugar on the long term can lead to a number of health disorders including depression and anxiety. If you’re one of the many that simply can’t resist the aroma of chocolate you’ve most definitely become addictive to sugar.
The sad truth is that sugar has no nutritive value and it’s not just that it’s empty calories, it can cause damage to your immune system, lead to diabetes, arthritis, ulcers, adrenal fatigue and premature aging. It depletes the essential nutrients in our body which causes further problems. Sugar causes all sorts of health problems and complications which is why you need to cut back on it or simply banish it from your diet altogether. But the biggest problem is that this is easier said than done. Getting off sugar can lead to withdrawal symptoms much like withdrawal from some drug or alcohol. But the good news is that the following diet plan can help you eliminate sugar from your diet completely without feeling the cravings and the withdrawal. It’s a 7 day diet plan that will detox your body and lose up to 30 pounds in just one week.
