You probably know that sugar isn’t great for your health, but how bad is it really? For starters, too much sugar in your diet can cause pesky mental side effects such as cloudy thinking, shortened attention span and mood instability. When it comes to physical symptoms, sugar can wreak havoc on our sleep schedules and cause weight gain.
While it’s easy to identify why we should cut down on sugar intake, that’s much easier said than done. Sugar is an added ingredient in so many packaged foods. From the dressings in your fridge to the cereal in your pantry, sugar hides behind all types of store-bought foods that you might not have originally thought of.
One of the best ways to reset your body and cut down on sugar is by doing a sugar detox. While the types and length of sugar detoxes vary, you could start out with a simple 7-day detox to help your body rid itself of excess sugar and help you set healthier habits that will not only make you feel better, but might just help you be more productive.
