Because the research has shown so conclusively that we need to get our sugar habits under control, the word detox is getting thrown around a lot.
Detoxing is when you cut out a substance from your life.
A detox is usually associated with drugs like cocaine or heroin, or even alcohol.
And detox is the first step in kicking an addiction.
This is why detoxing is now becoming associated with sugar.
We eat so much sugar that our bodies, our brains, in particular, are dependent on the quick energy and the hormones that sugar causes us to produce.
The only way to reverse this is to detox and then start over with a better eating plan.
