In the video “THIS Is Why You Should STOP Eating Sugar” by Dr. Berg, he discusses the numerous benefits of giving up sugar for just two weeks. Dr. Berg explains that by eliminating sugar, individuals can expect to see a reduction in facial puffiness, puffy eyelids, and belly fat. Additionally, cravings for carbs will decrease, leading to weight loss, improved mood, and enhanced attention and focus. Giving up sugar can also lead to decreased fluid retention, improved kidney and eye health, reduction in pain and inflammation, and improved sleep. In addition, Dr. Berg warns viewers of the dangers of consuming refined starches, which can have a worse effect on blood sugar levels than actual sugar. While these refined starches may not be classified as sugars, they can still have a detrimental impact on the body. Dr. Berg’s video highlights the many reasons to eliminate sugar from the diet and the positive impact it can have on overall health and well-being.

In this video, we’re going to take a look at some of the amazing health benefits you’ll experience if you eliminate sugar from your diet for two weeks.
The following side effects can occur in as little as two weeks without sugar:
•Slimmer face (less round/puffy)
•Less puffy eyelids
•Reduced belly fat
•No more carb cravings
•Decreased hunger/more satisfaction after meals
•Improved attention and focus (mental clarity)
•No more fluid retention
•Decreased pain and inflammation
•Decreased bloating and abdominal pain
•Improved sleep quality
•More relaxation/decreased adrenal stress
When avoiding sugar, you also need to avoid refined starches, which can be even worse than sugar! Refined starches go through a refining process known as hydrolysis, which breaks the starches down. This process causes a more significant effect on your blood sugar than sugar itself.
For example, maltodextrin has a glycemic index between 110 and 136, while sugar and glucose have a glycemic index of 65 and 100, respectively.
Maltodextrin is found in countless food products, including certain health food products. If maltodextrin is added to a food product at less than .5 grams per serving size, manufacturers can claim that the product does not contain carbohydrates.
If the manufacturer uses a hydrolyzation process, they can also claim that the product contains zero grams of sugar! This means that many people are unknowingly consuming hidden sugars.
While dietary sugar consumption is going down, the percentage of ultra-processed food consumption is on the rise.
The good news is that there are healthy alternatives that are tasty too! Just be sure to look closely at the labels on the products you buy to avoid consuming excess sugar.

So what would actually happen to your body if you actually gave up sugar for two short weeks and I know a lot of people would tell you that the trend for eating sugar is a lot less than it was before and so how can that account for
All of our health problems well you’re about to find out let’s first dive into the benefits of what would happen after just two weeks of not eating sugar the first thing you would notice is your face would be less round okay less puffy I used to have kind of a puffy roundish
Face now it’s not a full-blown moon face but it was definitely rounder and it wasn’t as thin as it is now so the shape of your face will change because you’re going to have less fat in your face number two you’re going to notice less puffy eyelids you can always identify
How much sugar someone’s consuming by looking at how puffy their eyelids are in fact I had puffy eyelids for many years I didn’t know what it was but after I get rid of the sugar that puffiness went away number three your midsection your your belly fat will
Reduce too much sugar converts to excess liver fat which then spills over into your gut the fat around the organs giving you belly fat so belly fat is a really good indication that you’re eating too many carbs number four your cravings for carbs will go down to zero
You just will not want carbs anymore but even a little bit of sugar here and there will keep that craving persisting to the point where it’s going to be really hard to give it up this next one number five your hunger is going to go way down you’re not going to be hungry
All the time you’re going to feel satisfied which is going to be huge if you want to stick to any type of plan it’s torturous to Crave things and be hungry all the time when you’re trying to lose weight so sugar increases insulin and Insulin makes you hungry the
Next one is your mood is going to greatly improve if you were depressed before if you had anxiety before you’re probably going to be a lot calmer you’re going to feel more up I remember getting a success story from this gentleman who was very very depressed to the point of
Suicide in fact he wanted to kill himself so he locked himself in his room and he stopped eating uh everything so he was doing a fast and of course when you’re fasting you’re not eating any sugar and your body is in the ketosis and so by the third day he felt
Wonderful his depression went away and so intermitted fasting or fasting and lowering your carbs uh create a similar effect number seven your attention will be much much better I remember when I was on a high carb diet Bo did I have brain fog I had no idea that it was
Coming from all the sugar I didn’t make the connection until one day I decided to give up the sugar and it was like someone took this brain fog helmet off my head and I finally actually can think number eight your fluid retention will
Go away I used to have it I can press my finger into my ankles and it would leave a dent that’s pitting edema I had that I had no idea that was all the sugar that I was consuming sugar retains fluid and this relates to the next Point as well
Your eyes are going to improve your kidneys will improve your arteries will improve and your nerves will get better because those are the four tissues that higher amounts of sugar will affect and when it comes down to the eye you can gain more fluid into the eye increasing
Your risk for glucoma when you have high amounts of sugar in your blood because think about this if you have this concentrated sugar in your blood well it pushes off into other fluids like in your eye as well as in your lens of the eye which can lead to cataracts number
Nine your pain and your inflammation will go down considerably boy it’s not until you reduce your sugars that you’ll realize how much of that was contributing to either arthritis or inflammation or pain in your body until you eventually give it up and you’re going to be amazed how much less
Inflammation you have in your body number 10 you’re bloating your abdominal pain will go down but I had years of bloating and gallbladder problems and abdominal pain from eating so much sugar number 11 your sleep will be much better I remember one time uh when I had really
Bad sleeping problems when I was consuming a lot of carbs what did I do to solve it ate more carbs in fact I would consume I’m not kidding a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream before bed just to have like a just sugar coma so I
Can literally go to sleep little did I know that made things worse I started having uh restless leg syndrome wake up in the middle of the night I’d have to go run to get this energy out because I had all this energy that was lactic acid
Coming from the buildup of all the sugar that was not being burned properly in my mitochondria the energy factories of my cell number 12 you’re going to feel really calm your adrenal stress that you might have will be much better and if you have kids you’re going to notice
That their demeanor is going to be better they’re going to be able to sit for longer periods of time I mean think about how many kids are are just wired on sugar they’re so restless and one of the reasons is because all this sugar depletes you of B1 which will give you
The symptom of nervous tension if you want to see a really dramatic effect if someone has nervous tension or just built up of stress just give them some B1 and watch within 3 minutes they’re just going to feel nice and calm number 13 you’re going to notice your skin is
Going to be much much better not just improving acne but also drying High skin excessive oily skin the overall color and tone of your skin is going to be much healthier so those are some of the benefits but check this out I don’t know if you’ve ever heard this before there
Is something in the majority of the population’s diet that is creating a sugar likee effect it’s something that’s not sugar but it acts like sugar but it not just acts like sugar it acts worse than sugar and we’re talking about refined starches in certain food products if you
Want to call it that they’re basically classified under ultr processed foods AKA junk Foods let’s take a look at used to be my favorite right so if we look at the ingredients this has dried potatoes vegetable oil okay could be cotton seed corn or soy or
Sunflow and then it has corn flour okay corn starch rice flour maltodextrin so all of those are refined starches so in other words maltodextrin modified corn starch modified food starch dextrin basically are not sugars but they have a huge effect on your blood sugars multidex has an effect on the glycemic index between
110 and 136 I mean glucose is 100 table sugar is 65 so you can see it’s like way worse than sugar but it’s not really a sugar if we take a look at the total carbohydrates it’s 16 16 gram the total sugars zero zero sugars so you might be
Saying wow that’s great it’s no sugar is just carbohydrate but this is going to turn into sugar so fast and raise your blood sugars so this 16 grams really is four tpoon of sugar and that uh is just 1 F of this okay so it’s like a it’s
Probably a stack of those chips about this big right here has four teaspoons of sugar you can imagine if you consume the whole thing which I used to do without any hesitation that you’re dumping a lot of sugar into your body but it’s not listed as sugar so when I
Talk about getting rid of these sugars for two weeks I’m talking about also the starches but I want to show you one last thing okay it’s with this s right here used to be one of my favorites right Fruity Pebble okay and I want to show you how much
Sugar that’s in here first starting with the actual sugar itself okay the sugar that’s labeled there one cup of Fruity Pebbles okay that’s about 4.5 but if we add the starches that turn in the sugar because they’re really sugars in reality because they create a much more damaging
Effect we have to add four more teaspoons okay actually five more teaspoons so that gives us a total of nine teaspoon per cup all right so you can see that this is a this is a lot of sugar for one cup right who consumed just one cup an
Average child or adult is going to consume probably four cups per breakfast right so now we’re talking about 36 teaspoons so let’s go ahead and add that okay I’m not even at 36 I think you get the point that’s a lot of sugar for your breakfast I found this one right here
It’s called the granola Bakery keto granola Cinnamon peacon Now check out the ingredients of this peans almonds dried coconut sunflower seeds pumpkin seeds chory root fiber arrol coconut cream coconut oil cinnamon monk fruit juice concentrate that’s not a lot of Sugar by the way vanilla extract in sea
Salt this is like one gram of sugar now it does have 8 gram of carbs but it has has 5 G of fiber so if you deduct that that is a 3 G Net carb with one gr of sugar and this is not alter processed food so it’s not going to turn into
Sugar really fast we’re talking like one gram of sugar if we compare that to this one right here one serving size 150 calories roughly this is like 36 G of stuff that turns into the sugar this is one gram so let’s see 36 to one let’s
See which one I’m going to pick here now if you’d like to find out exactly what diet you should do to make this easy I put a link down below so you can download the plan get started and start experiencing the massive benefits of avoiding sugar
