Even when consuming too much sugar, the body uses only what it needs to boost the energy, while the rest is stored as fat. Here’s how to calm your sweet cravings, lose weight and improve your health in 3 days.
Artificial sugar is different from natural sugar. When it reaches the intestine, the body raises the level of blood sugar and processes the artificial sugar as intestinal bacteria. Sugar stored by the body turns to fat and becomes visible, especially at the waist, hips and thighs.

Anti-sugar detox drinks
Instead of consuming sugary drinks, opt for these detox drinks and hot drinks to boost metabolism and cleanse the body:
Choose one of these foods, then cut into pieces: grapefruit, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, and add fresh rosemary or mint. Then, mix it in a glass pitcher filled with water. Refrigerate, and then sip through the day. These fruits are rich in antioxidants which help cleanse the blood of accumulated toxins from sugar. In addition, they contain a natural sugar very beneficial to the body.
Drink green teas or unsweetened tea 3 times a day. Green tea is a very effective detoxifier because of its antioxidant content. In addition, its diuretic action removes grease and prevents water retention.
As for the coffee, you should not consume more than a cup of black coffee without sugar per day. It promotes stress and can speed up the heart rate.
It is advisable to drink these beverages all day long. This diet is very effective in calming sugar cravings. However, to notice results, it is important to pay attention to your diet and opt for fresh and organic vegetables and fruits, not to forget to engage in regular physical activity.
