Detoxification involves many steps and different methods. In fact, it is considered as one of the hardest and most challenging ways to stay healthy. While there are many different types of detoxification methods, you should make a decision to clear your body from sugar because it is the main culprit causing diabetes. Here is who you can do for the first 10 days.
Decide to detox – The commitment to detox your body from sugar is a hard and difficult. But if you want to stay healthy and lose weight, decide to do this and stick to the programme. Remember that to detox from sugar is not only abstaining from this harmful ingredient but to stay clear from eating even when you are not hungry.
Cold Turkey – Sugar is not an addiction. You can stop consuming all forms of sugar almost immediately. If you drink Teh Tarik, order one with NO SUGAR. Artificial sweeteners, they are equally as harmful. Do this for 10 days.
Liquid Sugar – Tau Foo Far, soya bean drinks are known to involve liquid sugar. They are worse than those you consume from solid food. If you drink soda or carbonated drinks, they are your biggest source of calories. Instead, go for vegetable or fruit juices.
Protein – You should maintain a diet which is high on protein. This is your priority for breakfast because they help to balance your blood sugar and insulin. As a result it can reduce your cravings for food. Eat lots of nuts, seed or eggs (check for healthy ones).
Carbohydrates – You can take unlimited carbs but ensure you are taking the right ones. Go for leafy veges like broccoli, onions, tomatoes and artichokes and avoid potatoes and beans.
Fats – It has long been established that sugar is more harmful than fats. The former is the main culprit that makes you fat not the latter. Hence, you can go for fats instead of sugar by taking nuts or avocados.
Just in case – Prepare an emergency food pack for times when you are hungry. The last thing you want to do is to head out to get something quick. Your food pack should be good with fats and protein.
Stress Test – Did you know that stress will add weight? Take up deep breathing exercises that can calm your nerves when you are heavy-laden with work and deadlines.
Resting – Try not to overwork your body too much. Get ample rest and enough sleep. It helps to reduce food cravings and overeating.
