Stop the sugar: health effects in just three days

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — If stopping the sugar can cause symptoms resembling weaning, the benefits of this decision are many and range from a simple weight loss to a better quality of sleep, through improving performance in the gym, explained a dietician from the University of Nevada.

The condition of the hair, skin and nails and even the quality of sleep can improve if the sugar is removed . Samantha Coogan, director of the nutrition and dietetics program at the University of Nevada, explained the influence of stopping sweets on the body.

Cutting the sugar tap means losing tons of unnecessary calories, she said in an article posted on the school’s website. However, sugar is addictive and some people may experience withdrawal symptoms because when the body becomes accustomed to certain substances, the elimination of these substances causes a state of shock.

Thus, stopping the sugar could lead to headaches and stomach, as well as disrupt the intestinal activity.

Withdrawal symptoms can last from a few days to two weeks.

How to do it?

It’s possible to get through this difficult time by increasing water consumption, chewing gum or opting for “naturally sweet” fruits and foods, Samantha Coogan said. Everyone’s body is different, but for some, changes can be felt in just three days.

What to expect?

Once the withdrawal symptoms have been overcome, it will be possible to take advantage of the situation.

Thus, the condition of the hair, skin and nails begins to improve, the performance in the gym increases, it becomes possible to recover faster after training, the productivity at work increases, the weight drop and sleep cycles become longer and more consistent, noted the dietician.
