You finish your food and now, in the end, you want something sweet but guess what this sugar-loaded sweet will disturb your weight loss. But you can’t quit sugar then what to do? This sugar detox plan will help you to control your craving.
I know it’s very difficult to quit sugar and start something healthy and clean eating.
One true fact is that Americans usually take 22 teaspoons of sugar per day.
And, 1 teaspoon of sugar equals to 4 grams and if we do some maths here
22 teaspoons of sugar = 88 grams.
This is crazy.
The same thing won’t happen with taking proper protein numbers, people don’t bother about the things which are healthy and can be beneficial for them.
Anyways in this post, I’ll be showing you some proven ways to stop eating sugar and quit sugar addiction easily.
So, without any further ado let’s dive in
Sugar Detox Plan
Soda tastes so good but have you ever care for its nutrition fact.
One can of soda which is normally more than 8 ounces has usually somewhere around 20-48 grams of sugar in it.
Which is too much.
And, if that much grams of sugar is going in your body a day, then you may have health problems like heart disease or diabetes.
Instead, I would suggest you make sparkling water, herbal tea or simple mineral water.
Now, pretty much every time I used to tell to be hydrated all the time.
If you think water is going too simple for you, then add lemon juice or beet juice.
This will be healthy too and will solve your craving.

The first meal you are having in a day needs to be very healthy.
Don’t think about satisfying your hunger and having heavy meals.
Your breakfast needs to be rich in protein so that it will make you full till your lunch.
Omelet can be better options for a protein-based breakfast.
I would suggest you take 2 slices of brown bread and make an omelet of 4 eggs.
This will give 20 grams of protein approx right at the start of your day.
Also, this will reduce your sugar craving.
Add more complex carbs:
Carbs are not bad for your body but there’s a point you need to know.
The best alternative of simple carbs is complex carbs.
Now, what will happen when you switch it from simple carbs to complex carbs?
When you start consuming complex carbs, then these are converted into glucose which is used as a form of energy.
If you are taking white bread then take brown bread, white rice then switch it to brown rice.
That’s how you change your eating habits by simply adjusting your food varieties.
There might be a time where you end up in so many restaurants around you
Pizza hut, Dominos, Burger King and so many.
Which one should you go for?
Literally to none.
Yes! That’s why you should keep healthy snacks with you all the time.
If you really want to quit sugar, then you need to adapt to this habit.
Now, what you can have for your snacks?
The best options are fruits, nuts, and some smoothie.
Now, the choice is yours but ideally, a snack that has a good combination of protein, carbs, and fat is your perfect match and you should grab one of those.
Now, I have given 10 healthy snack options that are under 100 calories and helps you in losing weight and stops your sugar craving.
Stress has a correlation with your eating habits.
If you are more tired and stressed then these will elevate your cortisol level which is a stress hormone and you will end up eating something which is loaded with sugar.
Because your body needs something fulfilling.
So by keeping your stress levels under control can actually help you in living a healthy lifestyle.
