We all know that too much sugar is bad for our bodies, but what we may not realize is how hard it is to escape the fine white food. It’s been reported that more than 60% of foods in United States supermarkets contain added sugars, a statistic that was surprising to so many people that it changed the way the FDA mandated food labels be created.

Side effects of consuming too much sugar range from weight gain to lethargy, increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and tooth decay. So, how do we detox from all this sweetener, and what happens to our bodies when we do?

A sugar detox can be intense since we’ve become so accustomed to high sugar intake, but it can have astounding and long-lasting effects once you’ve completed the detox process.

Long-term benefits of going on a sugar detox include increased levels of energy, less fat around your mid-section, and even better-looking skin. Keep reading below to find out how else a sugar detox can help your health.
