Here’s What Happened When a Guy Quit Sugar for a Month
Sacha Harland decided to take on a challenge! He decided to give up sugar, alcohol, artificial additives and unhealthy food for one month. He wanted to see how would this dietary alteration affect his mental and physical conditions.
He captured his physical and mental journey in the six-minute clip above. Check out his incredible journey through the following video:
After watching this video there are many health issues we can still debate about. Is coffee bad for you? Does the cabbage soup diet work?
However there is one thing we can all usually agree on – sugar is bad for you (if you have too much of it). Isn’t it really interesting that Sacha starts to struggle really early on into the challenge and soon learns that his taste buds have been trained to crave salt and sugar-laden items.
We also see them highlight hidden sugars. Sugar consumption is both in plain sight and hidden, ingested from the most unlikely places. Sugar in tomato ketchup and microwave dinners, soups and crackers and just about every other processed food out there. Who are the biggest culprits? Soft drinks lead the list at 33% of our sugar consumption (drink water instead of coke and you’ve already made a huge dent). Sweets 16%. Baked goods like biscuits and cakes, 13%. Fruit drinks 10%. Sweetened yogurt and milk almost 9%.
If you are considering making a change in 2017, you don’t have to completely detox like Scott but reducing processed food and reading labels can make a huge difference.
