If you want to lose 10 pounds in 3 days or even lose 10 pounds in 2 days then cut out all sugar and drink water during a 3 day fast to get your system used to the idea that it will not be using sugar ever again.
Of the many things we can do to improve our health and make our body much more alkaline getting rid of sugar is one of the most important. The minute we do this we start to peel off the pounds.
Sugar is not in and of itself a bad thing. Basically, sugar is the body’s primary source of fuel. In the proper amounts and from a natural, unrefined source, glucose is beneficial and necessary for health, and even life.
The World Health Organization released dietary guidelines in 2003 that stated that not more than ten percent of your total overall diet should come from sugar. The average energy requirement is two thousand calories per day, so that means that no more than two hundred calories, or about 50 grams of sugar should be in your daily diet. This is the most that you should be consuming at any time.
Here is an example of how confusing tracking your use of sugar can get. The typical serving of seemingly healthy low-fat yogurt contains about 32 grams of sugar, which is the equivalent of eight teaspoons. That means that in one fairly small portion of a “healthy” food you’ve consumed about 64 percent of the total daily recommended sugar intake. You can see how easy it is to go beyond that when you consume cola drinks, cookies, sauces, syrups and other sweet foods.
If there are a number of terms that refer to health problems that are sugar-based. Insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, type2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome: all are conditions that are telling us that the body’s basic energy processing is dangerously unhealthy.
Some people who are addicted to sugar feel physically unwell most of the time. They may not even realize that they feel bad until they kick sugar and suddenly feel well.
It’s not easy to quit sugar. Though it’s not considered a drug like nicotine or opium, it can be very addictive.
In short, continue to avoid:
- Store-bought cookies, cakes, or pastries
- Fruit juice (even though juice sounds natural, it contains high concentrations of naturally occurring sugar, and should be generally avoided)
- Condiments that contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
- High-glycemic fruits, such as watermelon, mango, or pineapple (
- Maple syrup, honey, sugar, chemical sugar substitutes (such as Splenda, Equal, Sweet’n Low)
- Ice cream or frozen yogurt
Do not let yourself be tempted by sugar; the fact that you are craving it can show that you are developing insulin resistance. In the future this can lead to extreme weight gain that is difficult to reverse so get rid of the colas, candies and sports drinks that you are addicted to and replace them with water as soon as possible.
