What to expect in your first week of a sugar detox...

Sugar acts on the human brain in a similar way to many street drugs. Therefore, when you stop consuming sugar, you may enter withdrawal and experience some mental and physical symptoms.



Physical: Mental:

- light-headedness/dizziness. - depression

- nausea. - anxiety

- tingling - changes in sleep patterns

- fatigue - cognitive/concentration problems

- muscle cramps. - cravings (sugar, carbs - bread, pasta)

- bad breath - brain fog

- weakness

- constipation/diarrhea


Many people report feeling the worst in the first couple of days - stick to it! Most symptoms should be gone in about 10 days. That seems like a long time but you'll start to notice the differences in less than that!
