After The Detox – Sugar Cravings

Sugar cravings can happen after your detox!

In anticipation of leading Core Values Detox Plus, I did the detox myself for 10 days in September and blogged about it along the way. But here’s what could happen afterwards.

On the day after my detox experience, I attended a networking event. Typical to so many networking events, it took place during lunch time. At a place that had too much MSG in their food so I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat. Which is never a good situation for me because that low blood sugar feeling that happens when I skip a meal can also cause a migraine.

Sooo, I made myself a smoothie that I drank on the way to the event. Thinking that would tide me over. It didn’t. As soon as the event ended I was craving sugar. Fast. And I caved and stopped at a local coffee place and got a sweet, frozen coffee drink. I knew I shouldn’t do it, but I was a bit desperate and in a hurry. I then also ate a snack that also wasn’t one of the best choices.

Now this is where it gets weird: The next morning, when I woke up, I felt a bit sick, almost as though I had a hangover. Weird, right? But that just shows us what refined sugar and processed foods are actually doing. Not a good thing.

And it’s also a reminder to me to plan better for those lunchtime events when I can’t eat what’s being served.

Thank you so much for reading my post. Please leave a question or comment before you leave.

  1. This is so true. Means I can hardly eat out anymore. Instead, I travel with nuts and juice in my purse. Feels kind of weird, but much less difficult than the results of eating bad food. Keep up the great work!
