How to get detoxed from sugar
Daily tiring moments, uncontrollably needs of sugar? These are the warning signs of a sugar addiction. Learn how to release from it
If you feel that you have to limit your daily intake of sugar because of a chronic fatigue, needs of sugar, as well as weight issues, here are three essential steps to follow so as to get detoxed from sugar efficiently:
1. The deconditioning (2 weeks):
Do not erase brutally every kind of sugar from your diet, at the risk of experiencing too much frustration which will engender excessive temptation to eat sugar…
Slowly but surely, progressively eliminate first processed foods and industrial foods such as cakes, sweets, loaf bread, pastries, sauces, ready meals, breakfast cereals, baguette and white bread, yoghurts desserts, soft drinks and fruit juices…
Replace those foods by organic fresh or frozen vegetables, wholegrain bread, organic fruits and homemade dishes.
2. Tracking sugar
Don’t be too extreme in your food restrictions: keep in mind that glucose is the form of sugar most absorbable by our organization.
But still be careful: fructose, when it’s being ingested in high quantity, is less able to be regulated by the organization and stores as fats (unlike glucose which is being converted in energy) and thus becomes harmful because it increases the rate of triglycerides and cholesterol.
As for the fruits, the intake doesn’t involve any problems in the sense that they contain an appropriate quantity of fructose and they are known to bring a satiety message to the brain (bananas, apples).
Avoid: marmalade, honey, processed fruit juices and industrial smoothies, syrup fruits and spreads.
Prefer “good fat”: fat under non processed foods have satiating effects: avocados, eggs, oleaginous, herbal teas…
3. Make your own meals and recipes!
If everything goes well these first two weeks, you’ll be surprised to find out that your taste buds will regenerate and that you will be more willing to consume bitter-tasting foods such as dark chocolate and you should also like it more than when you were on a sugar diet.
Try to avoid the use of artificial sweeteners but also natural ones such as agave syrup as they keep on getting us used to sugar taste.
Replace those foods by vanilla, canella and other spices, sweet vegetables (pumpkin, carrots, squash, sweet potato, and beet). You can either eat it roast at the end of your meal or add it to your cake preparation.
