Lose 30 Lbs with This 7-Day Sugar Detox Menu Plan!

In recent times, more and more people are aware of the negative consequences sugar has on our health. However, millions of people are still unaware they’re addicted to sugar which can be found in almost all the foods and drinks we consume. Avoiding sugar is already an impossible mission and the substance is slowly, but surely destroying our health.

Excessive sugar consumption can raise your dopamine levels just as much as cocaine, making you feel better when you take it. Long-term sugar consumption can lead to a decrease of dopamine in your blood, resulting in withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. So, if you can’t resist a chocolate dessert after your meals, you’re officially a sugar addict and in need of help.

Besides being dangerous for our health, sugar has absolutely no nutritional value and can raise the risk of numerous ailments. Sugar can weaken your eyesight, raise the risk of diabetes and arthritis, harm your immune system and make you more prone to infections, raise your serotonin levels, trigger adrenal fatigue, cause ulcers, deplete your mineral levels and make you look older than you really are.

Getting off sugar is just as hard as getting off drugs. Sugar withdrawal causes similar symptoms to drug withdrawal so the process isn’t easy to endure. However, once you get off sugar, you will regain your health and reduce the risk of several life-threatening ailments, so you really should give it a try.
