Does stopping sugar affect your body?

  1. Although sugar has not been proven to have an addictive effect, many people who stop consuming sugar say they notice the effects. That ends with a pleasant and energetic feeling, but can start with a few days of headache, fatigue and hunger. These are ten complaints that can occur when you stop adding sugars.

1. Headache

  1. The most common complaint that people say they experience when they stop eating added sugars is headaches. The body is not used to taking in much less sugar, and is therefore in protest, scientists concluded in 2016. It is therefore important to taper off so that your body can get used to it.

2. Hungry

  1. Because the body is used to getting more sugar, it continuously asks for this during the first days. It therefore seems like you are very hungry. A piece of fruit can help satisfy the demand for sugar. This does not contain refined, but fruit sugars, as well as extra vitamins, minerals and fiber. In addition, fruit is full of antioxidants, which trap free radicals and thus prevent damage to your cells.

3. Nausea

  1. The body may have to get used to the new situation, which may cause you to experience nausea. This often takes no more than a few days.

4. Mood swings

  1. Headache, hunger, nausea, fatigue: because of all the complaints that can occur when cutting down on sugar, you may be more irritable and experience mood swings.

5. Fatigue

  1. The body has become accustomed to getting energy from sugar. When you cut out most of the sugars, the energy has to be sourced elsewhere. Instead of carbohydrates, the body burns fats for energy. Therefore, eat enough foods with fats when you cut down on sugar.

6. Constipation

  1. Because the intestines have to digest different food than they are used to, the intestines may react differently. Instead of carbohydrates, more fats can be processed. It is therefore important to drink enough water and eat plenty of fiber-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

7. Cramps and stiff muscles

  1. During the first few days without added sugars, the body has to work hard to get rid of its waste products. This works like a â € ˜detoxâ € ™, as it were. It may be that some extra minerals are lost, such as magnesium. This can cause cramps and stiff muscles.

8. Bad breath

  1. When you stop consuming sugars at all, your body goes into ketosis. The body can no longer remove sugars from the blood and therefore has a shortage of energy. You will burn more fat, releasing waste products through the breath that smell somewhat like acetone. It is important to know that the body needs carbohydrates to break down fat. This is why a completely low-sugar diet is not recommended.

9. To sweat

  1. The waste products come out through the breath, but also in the form of sweat. So it is possible that you will sweat more when you cut down on sugar.

10. Troubled skin

  1. Because your body sweats out the waste products, your skin may react to this in the form of bumps, color change or dry skin. These complaints will disappear quite quickly and by themselves.

Not for everyone

  1. The aforementioned ailments do not occur in everyone. Some only experience headaches, others experience nothing at all and feel good. So don't let it hold you back when you're considering cutting back or even quitting added, refined sugars. Slowly reduce to experience as few complaints as possible.
