Today’s Solutions: May 28, 2022

Go on any wellness website these days and you’ll find all kinds of detoxes that are supposed to boost your health. But if there’s one detox that you must give a try, it’s a sugar detox.

As registered dietitian Brook Alpert eloquently puts it, “sugar makes you fat, ugly, and old.” Sugar wreaks havoc on your immune system and sets you up for weight gains. And to make matters worse, it’s very hard to cut sugar out of your diet. In fact, research suggests that sugar induces rewards and cravings that are similar in magnitude to those induced by addictive drugs. But if you can manage to get sugar out of your life, it can help you quickly lose unwanted pounds, feel better and have a more radiant appearance.

Keen to do a sugar detox? Here is a detailed week-by-week plan that will help take control over your sugar cravings.
