Here is How to Detox Your Body From Sugar in Just 10 Days

If you desperately need a sugar detox but you don’t know how to do it, then you’re on the right page. Keep on reading to learn how to detox your body from sugars in just 10 days. All you need to do is to follow these simple rules.


1. Decide to detox 

This quiz will help you find out if you need to detox. If most of your answers are “yes” then you definitely need a sugar detox.

  • Do you have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes? (90 percent of Americans have not been diagnosed.)
  • Do you have belly fat?
  • Are you overweight?
  • Do you crave sugar and carbs?
  • Do you have trouble losing weight on low-fat diets?
  • Do you have high triglycerides, low HDL (“good”) cholesterol, or been told your blood sugar is “a little high?”
2. Stop drinking your calories

Liquid sugar calories are worse than solid foods with sugar. Liquid sugar calories turn off a fat storage machine in your liver, leading to more belly fat. You’ll never feel full so you’ll keep on craving more and more sugars and carbs. This is the reason why you should stop taking sodas, juices, sport drinks and sweetened coffees and teas.

3. Eat unlimited carbs

Unlimited carbs are the right carbs for you. For example, veggies such as broccoli, kale, collards, asparagus, green beans, onions, zucchini, mushrooms, fennel, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and artichokes are rich in carbs. Avoid sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, grains and beans for 10 days while you’re detoxing.

4. Power up with proteins

Taking proteins for breakfast is key for balanced blood sugar levels and insulin. Start your day with a protein shake or a whole farm egg. Also, eat more nuts, eggs, fish, seeds and chicken.

5. Swap sugar with fat

The truth is that fat doesn’t make you over-weight, sugar does. Fat helps you feel full and balances your blood sugar levels. Have good fats with every meal and consume more seeds, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, avocados, coconut butter and omega-3 fats.

6. Put out the fire of inflammation

Studies have shown that inflammation can cause blood sugar imbalance, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Sugar, flour and trans fats are the most common source of inflammatory foods. Quit dairy and gluten during the detox.

7. Get enough sleep

Less sleep means more carbs and sugar cravings. Getting less than 8 hours of sleep rises the hunger hormones and makes you crave for refined carbs and sugar. Make sure you get enough sleep.
