10-Day Sugar Detox Diet (Removes Fat, Headaches, Pain & More)
If sweet is sweet then what is sugar? Diabetes, cancer, dementia, depression, acne, infertility, heart disease. Doesn’t sound too sweet. The average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar a year. The average American man weighs 195.5 pounds, the average American woman weighs 167lbs. In the 1960s the average American man weighed in at 167lbs and the average American woman at 141lbs.
That is astounding.
152 pounds of sugar a year roughly translates to 22 teaspoons per day. And kids consume about 34 teaspoons every day, making nearly 1 in 4 teens pre-diabetic. Refined sugar and flour cause inflammation, raise blood sugar levels, and have no nutritional value that can’t be gotten elsewhere.
In a Harvard study scientists found that a high-sugar milkshake spiked blood sugar levels, insulin production, and the sugar craving centers in the brain. In a brain scan, the sugar lit up the addiction center like fireworks on the Fourth of July.
The Big 10
600 people tried out Mark Hyman, M.D.’s diet and lost 4,000 pounds in 10 days. When was the last time you lost 7 pounds in less than two weeks? And how hard did you work? The diet promises no cravings, no bland foods or boring diets, no deprivation – simply rewire the way you think about food.
Dr. Hyman created this diet to be full of sugar addiction-reversing foods that will reset your body and brain and let cut sugar from your diet and regain your life.
10-Day Detox Diet
Here are the top 10 big ideas for detoxing from sugar and refined carbs that will work for you in just 10 days.
Decide To Detox
In his book, Mark Hyman has a set of questions to help you know whether you need to detox or not. If you answer yes to any of the questions, a sugar detox will help you feel better and lose weight painlessly.
Going Cold Turkey
There is one way to stop physiological addictions: just stop. An alcoholic cannot have “just one drink” – the trick is to go cold turkey. Stop eating all forms of sugar, all flour products, and all artificial sweeteners – as they slow metabolism, spike cravings, and store fat. Ideally, for 10 days you will avoid any foods that come in a box, package, or can that have a label. Instead stik to real, whole, fresh foods.
Don’t Drink Your Calories
“Any form of liquid sugar calories is worse than solid food with sugar or flour,” says Dr. Hyman. It’s like mainlining sugar straight to your liver. Juices, sodas, sports drinks, and sweetened teas and coffees are the biggest source of sugar calories in most people’s diets.
One can of soda a day increases a kid’s chance of being obese by 60 percent and a woman’s chance of type 2 diabetes by 80 percent.
Protein helps balance blood sugar and insulin levels by being a “carb-free” source of energy. Start the day with whole farm eggs or a protein shake. Use nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, chicken, or grass-fed meat for protein at every meal. Protein helps you stay fuller longer because it breaks down more slowly while delivering the energy we need. 4-6 ounces – about the size of your palm – is the average serving size.
Unlimited (Good) Carbs
Did you know that a lot of veggies are carbs? You can eat all of them you want – just not the starchy ones like potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash or beets. But feel free to eat as many greens, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, asparagus, peppers, green beans, mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, and artichokes you like for 10 days.
Fight Sugar With Fat
Fat doesn’t make you fat, it makes you full. Plus it balances blood sugar and is a necessary part of your cellular structure. Good fats at every meal, like nuts and seeds, extra virgin olive oil, coconut
