It’s a good idea to eliminate added sugars from your diet completely but if you’re like me, that’s an option you might not even want to consider. But every now and then, a sugar detox is a good idea. Yesterday, the folks on NBC’s Today Show started a 10 day sugar detox and I’ve decided to join them.
I’ve done a more restrictive sugar detox before (click here for more details on that plan) but the NBC version is simple – no added sugar. So natural sugars in fruits are okay. But honey is not. Artificial sweeteners are not.
I could totally do it. Yesterday was day one. I was so good… Well, mostly good. I turned down an offer for an icy on the street (refreshing, especially when it’s as hot out as it was yesterday but actually it wasn’t so hard to say no to), I skipped the red velvet flavored milkshake my student wanted to buy me before a tutoring session (that offer was harder to decline) and guzzled down bottles of iced water instead.

Day Two is another opportunity to do it even better.
Have you done a sugar detox? What was your experience like?
