5 Reasons to Ditch Sugar

It's Sneaky

Sugar hides in all these places you wouldn’t expect, like pasta sauces and salad dressings. If you grab our 7-Day Sugar Detox Guide, you’ll see a section that specifically lists things with sneaky sugar so you can watch out.


We eat too much of it

Women should eat no more than 6 teaspoons — or 25 grams — of sugar a day. Now, brace yourself. The average American eats a whopping 77 grams of sugar each day. That’s TRIPLE the amount we should be having. Yikes.


It ups our health risks

We should avoid sugar, but why? There are a whole bunch of reasons, actually, such as... Acne Weight gain Diabetes  Heart disease  Cellular aging and more!


It messes w/ how we feel

When you eat a bunch of sugar, your blood sugar levels spike. You feel super energized for a little bit because of that. But then those levels dip back down just as quickly as they rose. As your blood sugar levels plummet, so does your overall energy. You feel tired and cranky.


It causes cravings

See, the sweet stuff affects your brain a lot like an addictive drug. So that urge you have to reach for another cookie isn’t your usual temptation, it’s actually something that’s going on in your brain chemically.
