Why cut out sugar and what to expect. Help with the withdrawals and cravings.

I have been asked what helps for sugar cravings. Especially if you cut sugar completely out of your diet. So today I answer this very good and important question. As most who cut sugar out will admit. After two day or longer. It becomes very difficult. Your body craves that sugar and you find yourself either using sugar again. Or you struggle not knowing what to do. 

Daily amount
Understand that sugar by itself isn't bad. But the truth is there is a limit to the amount of sugar you can consume daily. A limit that very few agree too. The daily limit is 9 teaspoons for men (37.5g) while womens daily limit is 6 teaspoons (25g). Any amount added is too much and this is the real issue. Most consume much more than this amount. For diabetics with type 2 diabetes off course this is not good at all. So please it is not applicable.

Why is it important to be mindful of the amount of sugar you add to your daily diet?

So please check and decide if you want to cut sugar out of your diet
As you will see it essential to be mindful of your sugar intake

Did you know that sugar is highly addictive? And when you cut sugar out of diet. You will have to deal with withdrawal symptoms. The higher your sugar intake. The more severe your cravings and withdrawals will be. Yes that is how serious it is.

Some of the symptoms

  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Extreme cravings
  • Changes in your behavior
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Feeling very lightheaded
  • Symptoms as if you have flu
  • Struggling to have a good night's rest
  • Confusion

So as you can see it is not a fun and easy experience. It may be very challenging. The withdrawal symptoms can go from a few days to two weeks. Even when you deal with withdrawal symptoms understand that the longer you stay away from sugar. The less your cravings for sugar will become. So even when you struggle know it will become easier and then finally. Your body will accept the changes in your diet. So how do you cope with the withdrawal symptoms?

What you can do when craving sugar
  • Drink water. Make sure you stay hydrated
  • Keep your stress levels in check
  • Consume more high fiber foods
  • Eat high protein meats or vegetables
  • Stay away from artificial sweeteners
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat fruit such as grapes mangoes berries and dates, 
  • Or healthy snack bars, dark chocolate or even yogurt

Interesting fact. Sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine. So when dealing with the cravings and withdrawals. It may become overwhelming. But if you keep going. Know that it will stop. Your body will adjust and you will know you conquered something that very few can truly say they defeated.
