    I have recently (3 days ago) stopped eating sugar to see if I generally feel more upbeat and energetic.

    When I say stopped eating sugar - I mean no chocolate, fizzy drinks or any other blatant sugary snacks.

    I do still eat bread and other day-to-day foods that will still contain sugar - just nothing over the top stupid.

    How long do you think it takes to feel/look better?

    Good for you! This makes me happy to hear this! Everyone's body is different. That being said you may notice a difference in the the way you feel/ look within a couple days, maybe a week. You should notice a difference in your mood, energy levels, skin health, weight, etc. Keep me updated! Sugar is the devil - Jackie Warner icon_biggrin.gif

    Good for you.

    To answer your question, you'll probably start to feel better pretty quickly.

    As for how you look, that will be more long term, slower paced results, but don't let that be your main motivation.

    And allow yourself a treat from time to time!!!

    Our body needs a little sugar. Don't go sugar free.

    This
    Sugar is one of the basic sources of calories...sugar exist naturally in fruits and vegetables which you may already know, avoiding them completely would spell disaster.

    For the past 5 years, I've never drank any fizzy drinks, not even a pint, since the time I quit, I feel a lot healthier now, I don't even eat chocolates and other sugary snacks except on rare occasions which I eat only corn flakes and biscuits.

    "How long do you think it takes to feel/look better?"
    I don't remember exactly but personally I think it took at least a month for me to notice changes.

    for those who are skeptical, trust me, you'll feel a lot healthier if you quit them.
    The more we avoid processed foods the more our health gets better.
