Stop what you are doing. This is important.
I’m kidding. But only for the “stop what you are doing” part.
Did you know that sugar is 10 times more addictive than cocaine?
I’m not going to say it. Do the research. You’ll see.
That’s why it’s so hard for you to keep a distance from the sweet things.
Sugar is tightly connected with many diseases.
It’s so good when you eat it. But when you hear about…
- Heart diseases
… the taste becomes bitter.
At least for me.
If you are expecting from me some numbers to prove you why sugar is deadly, you are at the wrong blog post.
I won’t do that.
Reading about numbers instead of doing something about it is wrong.
When people read numbers they say: “oh wow” and do nothing. It’s like they are not involved in those numbers.
How would I replace those numbers?
With a proven 10-day sugar detox by Mark Hyman M.D
Nearly 600 people have tried this diet and they managed to lose 7 pounds during those 10 days.
How they did it?
Following these 10 big ideas:
Decide to detox
This is the first step. Deciding to detox and saying you’ll detox are two different terms.
The book Mark Hyman created for you ask many questions.
If you answer sincerely to these questions, the sugar detox will help you feel better and lose weight.
Playing “Cold Turkey”
Do you want to know how to stop with all those addictions?
Just stop. Simple as that.
Quit. Stay away from those. They are harming your health.
There isn’t any shortcut.
If you are an alcoholic who is trying to quit, will just one drink help the cause?
It’s the same thing.
Go cold turkey. Avoid sugar. Avoid flour products and artificial sweeteners.
10 days and you will avoid all foods that come in a box.
Stick to real, healthy and fresh food.
Don’t drink calories
Liquid sugar is the same thing as eating sugar.
As a matter of fact, it’s worse.
The drink is concentrated sugar.
It goes straight down to your liver.
Every can of soda increases your chance of getting obsessed.
And that’s the last thing you want right now.
You know how important the protein is.
It balances your blood sugar and insulin levels by playing the role of the carb-free source of energy.
Starting with protein-rich breakfast is the best thing you can do.
Use nuts, seeds, fish, eggs, chicken or grass-fed meat as huge protein sources.
Unlimited good carbs
The veggies you eat are probably carbs. A lot of them are.
Don’t hesitate. Eat all you want.
Be careful. Avoid the starchy ones. Those are the potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets and winter squash.
Pay attention to your greens. You know. Eat more broccoli, cauliflower, kale, asparagus, green beans, zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes, artichokes, etc.
All these for 10 days.
Fat vs. Sugar
Get set. Fight!
Fight sugar with fat. I’m talking about good fats.
They won’t make you fat. I would say full.
You can find them in every meal like seeds and nuts, extra virgin olive oil, avocados, coconut butter and fish.
It will keep your mind away from sugar.
Prepare for emergencies
No. The fast food restaurants or vending machines are not your emergencies.
You need an emergency snack full with protein and good fats all the time.
You won’t be allowed to bring bad choice whenever you feel like doing one.
Distress or De-Stress
Being stressed means cortisol. Cortisol makes your hungry.
It “begs” for anything that will make you satisfied at the time.
Falling for it could lead to type 2 diabetes.
Some studies show that taking a deep breath really helps when you are stressed.
It won’t harm you if you try.
Take a few deep breaths before you determine you are hungry.
Inflammation means blood sugar imbalances, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance.
There are so many healthy foods that could reduce it.
Dairy and gluten are really smart. They are very well hidden in the food people crave.
They are really tough to quit. Some say it’s impossible to do that in 10 days.
Give it a shot. You’ll feel like new!
Take your 8-hours of sleep. Use them as much as you can.
When you don’t sleep, you feel drained. The energy bar is on the empty side.
Avoiding to sleep because there is more “important” thing to do increases your hunger.
That’s why you often catch yourself “digging” in the fridge for a quick snack to satisfy your hunger.
That won’t help because those snacks are high-sugar products that will boost your energy.
That will make you become addicted to them.
Keep your craving busy by sleeping.
Are you ready?
You’ll lose weight. Have more energy. Feel wonderful. And never feel like eating sugar again!
