How to Detox Your Body From Sugar In Just 3 Days


It’s no secret that too much sugar is bad for our health. While moderate sugar consumption poses no health risk, the average person consumes high quantities of sugar – perhaps without even knowing it.


Many foods that contain added sugars also contain lots of calories, but often have few other nutrients. Eating these foods often can contribute to you becoming overweight.

Being overweight can increase your risk of health conditions such as: heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke, according to the NHS.

Nutritionist Brooke Alpert and dermatologist Dr Patricia Farris say they can help people kick the habit with their new book, The Sugar Detox.

They are aware of how our sugar addiction is ‘making us fat and sick, and is prematurely ageing our skin’ – but say you can start to reverse the effects in just three days.
