Mounting evidence shows that
reducing or eliminating sugars in your diet
can benefit your health.

Let’s quit sugar today.

Curb Cravings

Cutting back on free sugars in one’s diet has been shown to alleviate or eliminate cravings throughout the day by helping to reduce insulin spikes. > Find out more

Decrease Inflammation

Decreasing free sugars in your diet can reduce puffiness and inflammation throughout the body. > Find out more

Sustain Energy

Though free sugars give us a short burst of energy, we often tend to rely on the next “hit” to keep our energy up. Instead, we advocate for healthy whole grains and nutritious foods that will give us longer lasting, sustained energy and satiety throughout the day. > Find out more

Lose Weight

Countless studies reveal that cutting back on free sugars and highly processed foods can quicken weight loss and keep fat at bay. > Find out more

Balance Hormones

The increase in consumption of free sugars in our diet has been shown to change our brain and body chemistry—including the production of serotonin, dopamine and opioids, compelling many of us to eat more.1, 2 By eating whole, nutritious foods, we can re-balance our hormones and ultimately reclaim our brain chemistry—the natural way. > Find out more

Prevent diseases

Increased sugar intake can lead to many preventable diseases, so why not prevent disease from the start by eating well—and freeing yourself from sugar! > Find out more

Improve Mood

The constant reliance of sugar and its corresponding withdrawal symptoms can make us moody, depressed and promote brain fog. By breaking away from our reliance or addiction to sugar, we can improve our mood. > Find out more

Improve Overall Health

Sugar has absolutely zero nutritional value, so as we move to eating more healthy, nutritious foods that our cells and our body wants, we’ll inevitably be improving our overall health. > Find out more

Why can reducing or eliminating
free sugars in your diet help you?


Free sugars, which are inclusive of refined and added sugars, are sugars that are “freed” when fiber is removed during processing, such as juicing, or simply because fiber was never present in the first place (e.g., honey). Fiber is important because it helps slow the absorption of sugar into our bodies.3

[These] free sugars were virtually absent in our diets for much of human history. Even though certain free sugars, like honey and maple syrup, were present in certain parts of the world, they were not as easily accessible and consumed as they are today. About three hundred years ago people in England on average consumed only 4 pounds of sugar per year.4 According to the USDA, Americans are now consuming around 131 pounds of sugar annually.5 This should come to no surprise that our bodies aren’t use to this overconsumption of an ingredient, which is now strongly considered by certain members of the science community as a chronic liver toxin6 and responsible for rewiring our brain chemistry, compelling us to want to eat more.7

Recent studies show that reducing or eliminating free sugars in one’s diet can positively affect one’s health. SUGARDETOXME will help you get on (and stay on track) and the rest is up to you!
