I Quit Sugar For 90 DAYS | NO SUGAR CHALLENGE

August 17, 2019 100 By William Morgan


in December of last year I let loose and did something I’ve never done before i binge on junk food with absolutely no limits look at me so cute so burgers pizzas noodles fried food sweet treats I had them all I went all out during the holiday season because I knew I was going on a gut protocol with my doctor to fix some gut health issues since I was a child it wasn’t the healthiest thing to do but I just wanted to have whatever I want cause my doctor said that once I start potentially I had to eat clean for up to six months half a year with really clean eating that’s a tough pill to swallow so yeah I’m gonna talk about why sugar is so addictive why it is so bad why it is so hard to quit sugar how I feel my results and all of that but before we do that smash that like button smoosh it real hard and let’s jump straight into it so what is sugar so bloody Dan so sugar activates the reward system in your brain that gives you happiness makes you feel really good and drugs like cocaine and nicotine do activate the same system as well so that makes us wanna have it again again and again wanting more and more so that pretty much you know create the addiction we all know how delicious ice cream and cookies are croissant bagel biscuits oh my god I love my chocolates so why is sugar so bad got problems weight gain which is pretty obvious diabetes heart disease because of inflammation skin inflammation like acne rosacea eczema tooth decay damage metabolism fatty liver and also kidney damage which is pretty serious it also changes in your life fluctuations in your mood because of the up-and-down blood sugar so how did I quit sugar for three months and what are the rules so first you gotta like and subscribe so you need to identify what is sugar there’s a lot of different form of sugar it is very deceiving there’s a lot of packages out there that say that there is no sugar added but damn sort of sugar alcohol added or artificial sweetener and those are so bad for the gut so what are the different forms of sugar there’s grape sugar honey icing sugar invert sugar malt syrup maltose sorbitol palm sugar powdered sugar raw sugar brown sugar natural sugar sugar cane sugar theyed sugar corn syrup oh my god that’s really bad high-fructose corn syrup that’s really really bad castor sugar coconut sugar coconut palm sugar sounds pretty healthy but it is still a type of sugar so for example this chocolate bar says that there’s no sugar added but if I look at it closely there is Polly Destro’s that is a form of sugar every toe a form of natural sweetener I think it’s natural I’m not really sure and also stevia which is definitely a natural sweetener but so I’ll give stevia opossite if you really really want to have some sort of like sweetener that’s natural then you can try stevia because it does not have any impact on your blood sugar which is great but at the same time if you get triggered by stevia in a way that you want to eat sweet things more and more because stevia is sweet so it makes you wanna have more sweet stuff because you know it still activates that happiness in your brain you know it’s still in addiction you know I mean so if that triggers you then you probably have to stop stevia as well so my point is that all this food let’s say that there is no sugar added this probably some sort of sweetener add it to it there is no way that this is sweet without adding something sweet to it right like it doesn’t make any sense so rule number two is to donate everything out or just lock it away in a corner just so that you don’t see so it doesn’t remind you of all these yummy snacks that you have at home out of sight out of mind so whenever I’m bored I’ll go to my fridge or my pantry to look for something sweet or snack and it’s pretty much out of a habit like I do this hose everyday and I’m used to it so yeah having it out of my sight really help because now I don’t have it in front of my face and I want snack on it which leads to rule number three now that all the temptations are gone you gotta replace your fridge and pantry with whole foods so you gotta shop for healthy alternatives Whole Foods things that really natural okay so whenever you’re hungry and you feel like eating something go for Whole Foods like fruits or nuts and seeds or vegetables like there’s so many options out there they are healthy so you can trophies or berries because they are all very low glycemic index and they are really good to not increase your blood sugar like drastically so you want crave for more sugar you can try almonds or seeds or celery or cucumber or tomatoes there’s so many options and also another very important tip when you’re doing grocery shopping is to not go to the chocolate and candy aisle hey that’s not gonna help you you’re gonna want to buy something so just don’t put yourself through that torture so the final rule is to have a plan we’re so used to like you know just going out for lunch and not really care about what’s in the ingredients like when you go to a sushi bar a sushi rice sushi restaurant you think that like you know so she’s pretty healthy right it’s just rice and fish like there’s nothing bad added to it but hang on guys there’s so much sugar added to sushi rice it is so sweet so sweet which is why we love sushi because it is tasty as heck and also sometimes when you go to work and you colleague decided to bake something really nice and treat you guys it is so hard to say no to those sweet treats so you gotta be prepared guys have a plan bring your own snack a fruit or vegetables or such little snack that is sugar-free so guys when I say have a plan you should know what you’re having for your lunch your dinner your breakfast and also for your snacks so preferably you plan your meals for the week for the entire week just so that you have everything sorted out and the chances of you cheating is a lot less so when you’re hungry or when you’re Benji you wouldn’t go like oh let’s have Macker let’s have this chocolate because you know your plan you have your plan set up and it is just for 30 days so it’s not too difficult and to change a habit it takes some time so that’s the reason why quitting sugar for 30 days is a great statue you know get rid of that sugar craving now let’s talk about my experience and it’s not easy okay it’s not easy on week one I had major sugar withdrawal which is why I had so much cherries I had so much berries it is definitely more than recommend that I was having like 500 grams of cherries a day a kilo of like just fruit sure it’s like that is not that healthy Belle’s looking for an option to satisfy my sugar craving and that’s a lot healthier than eating processed sugar and a week two and week three that’s when things got a little bit easier I still kind of want my sugar like who doesn’t want sugar it just makes me feel good thinking about sugar and I felt pretty good I lost a little bit of weight and just generally felt less the target another positive aspect of quitting sugar is that you stop having cup pressures and that’s the great thing about it because I felt less lethargic I feel more energetic that’s that’s very important when it comes to my work anyone’s right now from week four onwards I stopped craving for sugar like I know the taste of chocolate I know the taste of ice cream they just make me feel really good but I don’t crave for it so it’s really hard to explain because I know how good it tastes but I don’t actually want to have it anymore does that make sense like your body is not actively craving for it anymore but you know how good that feels like yeah that’s how it is yep yeah so after week four I kept going with it because I was doing my gut protocol I couldn’t have like a sugar to my food anyway at one point I stopped having fruits for about two weeks and after that I brought it back in and when I want to have some sort of sugar I’ll have some berries and I feel really really satisfied I’m really really happy we’re just eating berries at a point after three months I decided to have my first sweet treat so I started with some vegan ice creams and I thought there was so sweet like seriously super sweet and I just don’t think that they are kind of okay like I used to think that they are not that bad they are actually not as sweet as the normal ice creams I used to have so yeah my taste bud has definitely changed like everything that is kind of sweet is super sweet now and so I decided to get some chocolates because I love my chocolates and this chocolate that I normally have panitch Auklet is not as sweet as the normal chocolates I used to get like cabaret or lint so I got Planet chocalate and I thought that is the perfect sweetness so it is still not too sweet for me so I love it so much I had a whole bar and guess what I felt so sick afterward because that was just too much sugar and fat at the same time and I just couldn’t really digest it well so a lesson learned not too much sugar and chocolate at one go because I felt so so sick so after my first encounter with sugar after 90 days I gotta say I was craving sugar for the next couple of days it is an addiction guys like it is real this addiction is real so I tried my best and I told myself no I’ve done so well for the last 90 days don’t screw this up that I just want to be good you know but after that I’ve decided that I’m only gonna have sugar once awake I just don’t want this sugar addiction back in my life but maybe it will be because I’m heading to Japan in the month which is a sweet heaven so now I’m going to show you my results after three months and also what I look like right now after three and a half months so obviously I did workout during my first month and then I had a break for about two months without working out I just started working out again but not really intensely I just like just a couple of times a week or maybe like twice a week just because my body is still healing right now so I can’t really work out that intensely but Adrienne on the other hand didn’t really work out and he has such great results – and that’s all for
