Absolutely. I am not a doctor, but I can tell you that if you research sugar addiction, you will find many research papers on the subject.
Just like many people, during the quarantine, I gained a little weight. Well, actually it began before the quarantine, but it accelerated. Around August of 2020 I went to get a covid test at the doctor’s office. They put me on the scale. When I saw what the number was, I freaked out inside.
Cut Out Refined White Sugar
The first thing I did was cut out the bad, refined white sugar completely. That meant looking at everything I ate and getting rid of most processed foods. So I went cold turkey. I replaced a few meals with Our Phyto Superfood Green Drink and Plant Power Vegan Protein. This allowed me to detox off the sugar.
There was no way I could start exercising like I had in the past. So I started out slow. My wife and I went for 2-mile walks in the morning, then we began increasing it. Btw, there is no shame in walking as an exercise. You can burn just as many calories per mile walking as you can running. And there is a lot less wear and tear on the joints.
Intermittent Fasting and Water
This is not for the faint of heart and I am not telling you that you should do this. I am only telling you what I did to detox from sugar. You have to do your own research on the subject and determine if this is a good strategy for you.
