A Complete 3 Day Detox That Will Cleanse Your Body From Sugar, Help You Lose Weight And Boost Your Health


Weight gain and obesity are among the most common health issues in the modern society and are usually associated with the excessive consumption of carbs and fat.

Yet, weight gain is often a result of the excess intake of sugar, which can lead to rapid weight gain. Sugar is found in numerous foods and drinks these days, so it can easily find its way to our bodies.

Sugar is needed for the proper body function, but only a part of it as an energy fuel and the rest is stored as fat. Excessive sugar consumption of sugar causes the useless fat accumulation on your thighs, face, waist, and hips.

Moreover, the sugar in processed foods is in the form of fructose or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), that has been processed and is much cheaper than table sugar, but 20 percent sweeter than it.

According to Dr. Robert Lustig, a professor of Clinical Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology in the University of California and a pioneer in decoding sugar metabolism, the human body can safely metabolize at least 6 teaspoons of added sugar daily, which is much less than the amount we consume through our unhealthy diets. The accumulation of body fat then causes the development of debilitating chronic metabolic diseases.

Here are some of the effects of the excessive sugar consumption:

  • Leads to weight gain
  • It causes metabolic dysfunction, leading to high blood sugar, abdominal obesity, lower HDL and increased LDL, high blood pressure, and elevated triglycerides
  • It increases the uric acid levels, and thus elevates the risk of heart and kidney disease.
  • It overloads and damages the liver
  • Affects insulin and leptin signaling, and causes insulin resistance

If you are a sugary foods fan, you already know that cutting these products is not an easy thing to do, as the addition leads to sugar cravings, headaches, sadness, and fatigue.

However, you can try to fight this addiction by cutting one product by one. The following plan will help you detoxify the body from the excess sugar and prevent its harmful effects:
