We are presenting you the top 10 big ideas of Dr. Hyman for detoxing from sugar, in just 10 days
Decide To Detox
In his book, Mark Hyman asks several questions in his book whether your body needs to detox or not. If your answer is positive, than a sugar detox will be good for your body.
You should stop eating all form of sugar, including flour products and artificial sweeteners. Avoid foods in a package, box, and with labels, but consume real fresh food.
Don’t Drink Your Calories
Dr. Hyman says: “Any form of liquid sugar calories is worse than solid food with sugar or flour”. This means avoiding sodas, juices, coffees, sweetened teas, sports drinks since they are full with sugar calories.
Protein is carb-free energy source, and it helps in the blood sugar and insulin level’s balancing. Begin your day with a protein shake, or whole farm eggs, and consume seeds, fish, nuts, chicken in every meal.
Unlimited (Good) Carbs
Some vegetables are carbs, including beets, potatoes, winter squash, and sweet pottaoes, so you should avoid them. But feel free to consume as many broccolis, kale, peppers, cauliflowers, mushrooms, tomatoes, artichokes, asparagus, green beans as you like in these 10 days.
Fat Fights Sugar
Fat only makes you full, not fat. It’s a necessary part of the cellular structure and it helps in the blood sugar balance. Consume good fats such as seeds, nuts, coconut butter, extra virgin olive oil, fish, and avocados to keep your thoughts away of sugar.
Dr. Hyman says: “You need an Emergency Life Pak. I have one with me all the time, filled with protein, good fats, and good snacks so I never have to make a bad choice. Here’s what’s in mine: Packets of Artisana nut butters and coconut butter, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, salmon jerky or turkey jerky, a can of wild salmon or sardines and unsweetened wild blueberries.”
Distress or De-Stress?
The stress hormone makes you hungry, so Dr. Hyman advices:
“Simply take five slow deep breaths – in to the count of five, out to the count of five. Five times. That’s it. Do this before every meal. Watch what happens!”
Quit gluten and dairy for 10 days.
If you don’t sleep enough, your body craves for refined sugar and carbs.
