7-Day Sugar Detox Menu Plan And Lose 30 LBS

Most of us really enjoy desserts, all kinds of cakes and muffins, sweets and chocolate, but we are all aware of the fact that sugar is seriously harmful to our health.

It consumption leads to weight gain, obesity, energy crashes, wrinkles, and even more severe health issues, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Weak immune system
  • Increased serotonin levels
  • Ulcers
  • Heart issues
  • Arthritis
  • Poor vision
  • Gallstones
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Eczema
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Lower mineral levels in the body
  • Premature aging
  • What’s more, sugar is highly addictive, which is shown in numerous studies and can even lead to similar effects on the brain as some street drugs. Alan Greene, M.D., a children’s health and wellness expert and the author of books like “Raising Baby Green” and “Feeding Baby Green, claims:

“Addiction is a strong word. In medicine, we use ‘addiction’ to describe a tragic situation where someone’s brain chemistry has been altered to compel them to repeat a substance or activity despite harmful consequences.

This is very different than the casual use of ‘addiction’ (‘I’m addicted to “Game of Thrones!”’).”So, I’m serious when I say that evidence is mounting that too much added sugar could lead to true addiction. ”

Additionally, Cassie Bjork, R.D., L.D., founder of Healthy Simple Life, says:

“Research shows that sugar can be even more addicting than cocaine. Sugar activates the opiate receptors in our brain and affects the reward center, which leads to compulsive behavior, despite the negative consequences like weight gain, headaches, hormone imbalances, and more.

Studies suggest that every time we eat sweets we are reinforcing those neuropathways, causing the brain to become increasingly hardwired to crave sugar, building up a tolerance like any other drug.”

The following 7-day sugar detox will help you reverse the negative effects of the consumption of sugar and lose excess weight:
