MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Your body is never without sugar. Even on the days, you don't "eat" sugar, your body still produces sugar, only in a different complex form.

The best approach to quitting sugar is to eat it when you want it. The more you allow yourself to consume the foods that you feel are addictive, the more they tend to lose their excitement.

Those who advocate for "quitting sugar" make arbitrary rules by listing down which foods are okay to eat and the ones that they are going to avoid.
