Try it for at least 2 weeks. IF you can go 2 weeks without added sugar/salt/unhealthy fats, your tongue and brain will lose the taste for them. You’ll have more energy, brain power, and look & feel better in every way. Refer to Dr. Mark Hyman’s book, “The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet” for detailed steps and processes to break the addiction.
Here are some suggestions that have worked for me. (You’ll also find them in Dr. Hyman’s book):
Drink more water, green tea
Avoid sugar-packed high-calorie liquids like juice, soda, alcohol etc. Opt for water instead. Enjoy several cups of green tea which is packed with antioxidants and suppresses appetite. I drink unsweetened green tea everyday.
The best way to start your day off is to have a healthy protein-fueled breakfast. It’ll boost your metabolism, give you an energy boost, and keep you from making bad food choices the rest of the day. I have oatmeal every morning.
Get adequate sleep
More sleep=better food choices + increased activity. You should be getting a minimum of 7 hours of sleep/night.
Consume healthy fats like olive oil
I add a teaspoon of olive oil to my cooked veggies. It adds taste, promotes heart health, and reduces risk of diabetes. It’s an integral part of the Mediterranean diet.
Eat before getting hungry so not as susceptible to “binge” eating
Eat more earlier in the day. You’ll feel satisfied and eat less at night. Don’t rely on willpower. I never go hungry. I eat food that satisfies.
Try to implement these tips for 2 weeks and update us on the results 🙂
