In this video, we’re going to talk about what happens to your body if you stop eating sugar for 14 days. What you’re doing is converting from sugar burning to fat burning.

Changes in your face and midsection: Your face would become slimmer, and you would lose weight in your midsection because your liver is releasing fat.

Improvements in your eyes, brain, arteries, and kidneys: You'll experience a lot of benefits and potential improvements in these four areas of the body when you cut out sugar.

Decreased urination at night: You'll get up less at night to urinate because water follows sugar. Consuming sugar triggers urination, especially at night.

More energy: Your body is forced to run on fat fuel instead of sugar fuel. Your body has more calories from stored fat to use as fuel, giving you more energy.

Cravings between meals go away: Your cravings and appetite will go away between meals because even though you're not eating, your body is satisfied by your own fat.

Less stiffness, pain, and inflammation: These issues can start to improve when you stop consuming sugar, and you may notice less of a need for certain medications.

Weight loss: You're going to lose water weight as well as actual fat. Many different health benefits also come with losing weight.

Better skin: You may notice improvements in your skin because of a drop in inflammation.

Improves insulin resistance: Insulin resistance is at the heart of many health conditions. But, when you give up sugar, you can start to improve insulin resistance.
