What Happens if You Give Up Sugar Completely

One of the main methods, the doctor says, if a person wants to give up sugar is to replace candy with fruit and stay in this mode for a week.

It is difficult to give up sugar only for psychological reasons, and the beneficial effect of such a step on the body will quickly become apparent.

The expert emphasized that many people systematically consume sugar in excess, which leads to health and body problems.

“Glucose and good mood can be obtained without sugar: from cereals, fruits, and vegetables – natural, not canned,” said Bocharova.

“There is the power of habit, there are social traditions: tea with cake at a party, coffee with a bun in the morning. In fact, the main thing if you want to give up sugar is to replace sweets with fruit and stay in this mode for a week. You will see the first results, and they can become an incentive for you to continue eating in a new way,” she says.

According to Bocharova, in a few days after giving up sugar, digestion, and intestinal function will improve, and the emotional background will stabilize. Within a week, the skin condition will clearly improve, and sleep problems may disappear if any.
