This sugar-free reset is designed to help people kick their sugar habit without
feeling deprived. It’s free from all added sugars, including natural sweeteners
like maple syrup and honey.
Meals are packed with vegetables, legumes and whole grains, making it the
perfect 7-day reset for anyone new to sugar-free living.
As delicious as a sweet treat can be from time to time, most of us don’t
realize the amount of added sugar we’re consuming every single day. If we
understood the health benefits of quitting sugar and a no sugar diet, we
would look at those treats differently.
The recommended amount of daily sugar consumption for adults is 12
teaspoons or less. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) reports most adults are taking in 17 teaspoons or more of added sugar
on a daily basis.
There is a direct link between sugar and diseases like obesity, type 2
diabetes, heart disease, and – surprise, surprise – addiction. Sugar is
addictive and it’s making us sick.
One of the biggest reasons we’re consuming so much sugar is because it
is in almost everything we eat. Even foodstuffs, like salad dressing, yogurt,
ketchup, bread, pastas, and many other products. Whether we consider
these foods healthy or not, at the very least they are not seen as desserts, so
they are not perceived as foods that contain added sugars.
