Healthy Eating: How to Start a 4-Week Sugar Detox Meal Plan | Joanna Soh
Elevate Christian Network :: Health and Wellness
(Joanna Soh) So depending on your goals, you may choose to only eliminate only added sugar or both added and natural sugars. So for my 4-Week Sugar Detox Plan, I’m making this process gradual for all of you. For the first 2 weeks, the goal is to limit added sugar to no more than 25g or 6 teaspoons in a day.
How to Begin Replacing Sugar With Healthier Alternatives
And I want you to start replacing refined sugar with healthier alternatives such as maple syrup, honey or stevia. But do remember that maple syrup and honey are STILL ADDED SUGARS and should be within the 6 teaspoons or 25g limit.
To simple put, a sugar-free diet is one that limits all sources of added and hidden sugars in food. They are typically found in soda drinks, processed foods, desserts, pastries, sugary treats and more. Some sugar-free diets may even take it a step further and limit natural sugars, which are found in fruits, high-carb foods and even some vegetables.
Start With Low Added Sugar First
So treat the first 2 weeks as a period of low added sugar instead of NO sugar at all. I don’t want you to experience immediate sugar withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, low energy and even mood swings. Saying that however, some of you might still experience those symptoms, especially if your diet has been very high on sugar all these time.
