The sugar detox Daily Mail Saturday 18 Jan 2014

The new advice on how to reduce sugar in your diet, lower your weight and improve health.

The sugar detox – in the Saturday edition of the Daily Mail the 18 January 2014, by Dr Brooke Alpert:

The theory is that sugar is much more harmful than we think, perhaps there is too much sugar in our diets. It is in fruit, many drinks and added to the foods we eat. Each day as we eat the amount of sugar adds up and it is the overall total that is the problem.

The new series in the Daily Mail all week summarises the book by Dr Alpert and outlines the dangers of too much sugar and the action we can take. It is in fact a detox – as we crave sugary foods and need to re educate our bodies to do without or do with a lot less.

There are recipes to help you detox, with a wonderful detox rice pudding.

There is a book available called The Sugar Detox: Lose Weight, Feel Great and Look Years Younger by Dr Brooke Alpert and Patricia Farris.

Starchy foods also present a problem, so a full inventory or check or what we buy and eat is necessary.

Combined with a 5:2 diet, we could be onto the secret of much better health and a longer life.
