The sugar addiction detox, also known as, the sugar detox diet is all the rave these days.
Because for the first time in history, surprisingly Americans are consuming excessively high amounts of sugar at an alarming rate.
I've read reports that Americans consumes one hundred and fifty-six (156) pounds of sugar each year per capital.
To give you a visual picture, imagine yourself eating thirty-one (31), five (5) pound bags of sugar this year--a very scary thought.
Admittedly most of this sugar you don't see directly, but it does sneak into your diet from the foods you eat and drink.
Many of the food you eat and drink, that you think are harmless such as peanut butter, barbecue sauces, meal replacement bars, and canned fruits are loaded with sugar.
Below I have categorized a list of other harmful foods that are fully loaded with sugar.
How often do you eat sugary products?
You might be a "sugar addict" if you are obsessed with and crave sugar throughout the day. Here is a sign which may indicate you are ready to detox from sugar.
You constantly think about sugar while you try to get through the day. You need a sugar fix every few hours else your energy level plummets to a point you can no longer function.
Frequent mood swings which are corrected only after eating sugar and sweets is just another indicator you need to enroll in a sugar addiction detox program.
