What happens if you stop eating sugar? Find out

This is a personal experience shared by Jessica.

When I quit sugar  I had severe cravings for a few days (the sugar dragon, I call it) and intermittent cravings for a couple weeks. However, about 2 weeks in I detected a marked improvement in my mood stability. I was not only happier, but I could weather disappointments and irritations with more calm, instead of lashes of anger.

I also experienced increased concentration. This was especially notable because I am have ADD, so I am acutely aware of when I can focus. My “distractability” became much lower.

Finally, I no longer had difficulty with “crashing” in the middle of the day. Since I was a teenager I have struggled with falling asleep after lunch. I tried everything, sleep studies, extending my sleep at night, etc. It is not a good thing when you are falling asleep at your desk at work, believe me. Only after I cut out sugar did I notice a substantial change.

I vowed to keep sugar out of my life for good. That didn’t last long. As soon as I ate one piece of chocolate, my resolution was out the door. Even one bite of refined sugar is enough to wake the sugar dragon again, and it will clamor to be fed. I have done it before, so I know I can do it again. But even knowing how good the benefits are, I struggle every day to limit my sugar.
