Here’s What Happens When You Stop Eating Sugar

You’ll start sleeping better

Sugar cravings can hit at the worst times, including right before bed. But if you give in, the resulting sugar rush is likely to keep you from drifting off. Even eating dessert after dinner can impact your slumber. In fact, the more sugar you consume during the day, the more often you are likely to wake up during the night.

Most adults need a solid eight hours of sleep to function properly, and with extended periods of wakefulness, you will feel sluggish and tired the next day – leading to more sugar cravings. You’ll notice pretty quickly after cutting out sugar that you sleep more peacefully and enjoy a stable mood throughout the days.
