Coach K – Sugar detox plan

A good friend of mine, Kehinde Pitan is an amazing fitness coach that has walked alongside people to achieve their fitness goals. I am taking part in her 25 day sugar detox challenge and she has kindly allowed me to share details. so here goes.

25 Day Sugar Detox

7th-31st Jan.

Removing sugar from your diet is the fastest way to lose fat and increase your energy. When your blood sugar is out of balance it causes depression, causes you to store sugar as fat instead of using it for energy, causing you to have highs and lows in your energy, and leading to diabetes.
Raised blood insulin levels causes weight gain. Insulin promotes the storage of fat; so, when you eat foods high in sugar, you increase fat storage. Resulting in rapid weight gain.

Instructions for 25 day sugar Detox

Remove all sugar and simple carbohydrates from diet for 25 days in a row.

Notes from Coach K

At first, your cravings for sugar may be more pronounced. After you get over this, you will stop craving sugar all together. It usually takes about 2 -4 days or cravings to stop, so you will need a lot of will power to get through the initial few days. But, the longer you stay off sugar the easier it gets.
