How to Detox From Sugar & Caffeine

Save

Caffeine and sugar are two items your body becomes addicted to, and eliminating these from your diet can lead to nasty withdrawal symptoms. In order to properly cleanse your body of caffeine and sugar, you must adhere to a strict regimen to avoid adverse effects. The following guide provides a step-by-step routine for ridding your body of these addictions.

Things You'll Need

  • Tea
  • Vitamin C

Start on a Saturday or Sunday. Weaning yourself off sugar and caffeine can lead to fatigue or irritability, so start on a day when you have fewer responsibilities.

Slowly phase out the sugar and caffeine. Take the first three days to incrementally reduce your consumption of each. On the fourth day, avoid them completely.

Consume decaffeinated green tea and protein-rich foods for breakfast to start off your day. Eggs, nuts or a protein shake should make up your breakfast for at least the next four days.

Consume 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily.

Drink eight glasses of water a day.

Eat six wholesome meals a day, every three hours. This includes a portion of lean protein (eggs, chicken, fish), healthy fats (avocado, nuts, extra virgin olive oil) and good carbohydrates (whole grains, sweet potatoes).

Exercise regularly to avoid fatigue.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ginger or peppermint tea can help alleviate an upset stomach as a result of detox. Eliminating caffeine from your diet may make you feel tired more often; take this into consideration and plan your night accordingly to get more sleep.
  • Drastic changes in diet can lead to headaches, irritability, vomiting and fatigue. Consult your doctor before partaking in this detox.
