10-Day Sugar Detox Diet (Removes Fat, Headaches, Pain & More)
If sweet is sweet then what does the word sugar mean? It means heart disease, infertility, acne, depression, dementia, cancer and diabetes. It definitely doesn’t sound too sweet. About 152 pounds of sugar consume average American a year. Nowadays American woman weighs 167lbs and the average American man weighs 195.5 pounds. But in the 1960s the situation was different. The average American woman at 141lbs and the average American man weighed in at 167lbs.
That is astounding.
152 pounds of sugar a year means consuming about 22 teaspoons per day. Unfortunately kids consume about 34 teaspoons every day which make approximately 1 in 4 teens pre-diabetic. Refined flour and sugar cause raise blood sugar levels and inflammation. They do not have any nutritional value.
Scientists, in a Harvard study, discovered that a high-sugar milkshake spikes insulin production, blood sugar levels, and the sugar craving centers in the brain. In a brain scan, the sugar lit up the addiction center like the famous Fourth of July fireworks.
The Big 10
600 people tried the famous Mark Hyman, M.D.’s diet and they lost 4,000 pounds in just 10 days. Can you remember when was the last time you lost 7 pounds in less than two weeks? This diet promises no deprivation, no boring diets, no bland foods, and no cravings– simply changes the way you think about food you eat every day.
Dr. Hyman made this diet to be full of sugar addiction. It is based on reversing foods that will reset your brain and body and let cut sugar from your diet.
10-Day Detox Diet
Here are the top 10 big ideas for detoxing from refined carbs and sugar that will work for you in just 10 days, and not a day more.
Decide To Detox
Mark Hyman, in his book, has a set of questions just to help you know whether you need to detox or not. So, if you answer yes to any of the questions, a sugar detox will help you to lose weight and to feel better easy and painlessly.
Going Cold Turkey
There is only one way to stop physiological addictions: just stop. An alcoholic never drinks just one drink– the trick is to go cold turkey. So, you just have to stop eating all artificial sweeteners, all flour products and all forms of sugar because they store fat, spike cravings and slow metabolism. Ideally, for 10 days you will avoid any foods that have a label or come in a can, package or box, package. Instead of that, eat real, fresh and tasty foods.
Don’t Drink Your Calories
Dr. Hyman says that any form solid food with flour or sugar is better than any form of liquid sugar calories. Actually it’s like mainlining sugar straight to the liver in your body. Coffees, sweetened tea, sports drinks, sodas and juices are the biggest source of sugar calories but unfortunately people consume them every day, even during their diets.
One can of soda a day increases a woman’s chance of type 2 diabetes by 80 percent, and increases a kid’s chance of being obese by 60 percent.
Protein balances insulin levels and blood sugar. So, start your day with a protein shake or just eat a whole farm eggs. At every meal, include proteins from grass-fed meat, chicken, fish, eggs, seeds or nuts. Protein will make you feel fuller longer because it surely breaks down more slowly while delivering the energy we need.
Unlimited (Good) Carbs
Did you know that most of the veggies are carbs? You can eat as many as you want – just not the starchy ones like beets, winter squash, sweet potatoes or potatoes. But you can eat many greens, artichokes, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, green beans, peppers, asparagus, kale, cauliflower or broccoli for 10 days.
Fight Sugar With Fat
Did you know that the fat doesn’t make you fat, it just makes you full. Plus it balances blood sugar. Good fats at every meal, including fish, avocado, extra virgin olive oil, seeds and nuts are a good way to keep your mind off of sugar.
Prepare For Emergencies
Dr. Hyman says that you need an Emergency Life Pak. You can prepare it good fats or just filled with protein so you will never have to make a bad choice.
Distress or De-Stress?
The stress hormone, known as Cortisol, makes you feel hungry and lead you o Diabetes type 2. It also causes terrible belly fat storage. So, just follow Dr. Hyman’s Five Deep Breaths exercise:
Simply take five slow deep breaths, then you should count of five and, out to the count of five. Do this for five times. That’s it. You should do this before every meal. Watch what will happen!
College students, for some studies, slept only 2 of the recommended 8-hours of sleep. This led to huge cravings for refined sugar and carbs, a decrease in appetite-suppressing hormones and rise in hunger hormones. If you don’t sleep enough, your body needs energy and looks for it. Sleep is the best way to ensure cravings are kept at bay.
Part of breaking the sugar habit is actually to continue getting that sweet craving with on another healthier whole food sources.
