WHAT TO EXPECT
WHEN YOU QUIT SUGAR

Five reasons to quit Sugar

Before I share our experience, let me quickly remind you why you should even consider quitting sugar.  

Below are the top five reasons you should quit sugar, as highlighted by Heather Bauer,  a Registered Dietitian and New York State Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist (originally shared on Sweetdefeat). 

  1. Sugar raises your risk of Type 2 (and Type 3) Diabetes
  2. Sugar is highly addictive (the more you eat, the more you want it) and causes brain fog
  3. Develops into dangerous belly fat 
  4. Triggers premature aging and cause your skin to lose elasticity
  5. Interfere with the “good” bacteria in your gut causing inflammation, irritation, and allergies. 

So what happened when we quit sugar?

  • CONSTANT HUNGER 

    We felt constant hunger, especially during the first week. 

    Our bodies were getting used to the new diet and we lost some weight, which made us crave for more food.

  • WEIGHT LOSS

    We lost ca 1kg of weight each. Most of it we lost during the 1st week when we naturally reduced our caloric intake by quitting sugar.

    This, however, made us feel hungry and unhappy, and hence in the second week, we added more healthy fats to our diets to compensate caloric deficit.

    This stabilized our weight and made us much happier and more satisfied.

  • KNOWLEDGE

    We had to learn to read labels and be extra cautious when eating out.

    For example, we tried to find sugar/sweetener free bacon in our local grocery shop, but didn’t manage! Also, when eating out we tried to avoid all bakery products and sauces.

  • SKIN IMPROVEMENT

    Dovile´s acne pro- skin improved slightly.

    The change was not drastic, but the skin did clear out a bit.

  • PHYSICAL WEAKNESS

    In the first weeks we felt tired and fatigued – at one point it got difficult for Dovile to keep up with her regular fitness routine.

    This is probably linked to the sugar withdrawal and macronutrient changes in the diet.

  • HARD TO RESIST

    We went to Italy during the challenge – poor us, right? Sorry to tell this, but traveling was not as fun as it used to be.
