It’s time to 'Kick the Sugar' in this 7-day Detox
Did you develop a bit of a sweet tooth over the holidays? or maybe you’ve always longed for dessert while eating your main meal? either way, Viridian’s 7-day Sugar Detox Kit is here to support you in kicking your sugar cravings.
Is sugar so bad?
With 1 can of coke containing 9 cubes of sugar, more than the entire recommended daily allowance for an adult, and with free sugars ‘hiding out’ in expected and unexpected places, it’s easy to see why UK adults and children are consuming ‘way’ above the RDA.
Having a diet with high levels of sugar can contribute to weight gain which can lead to health problems such as heart disease, some cancers, and type 2 diabetes. Sugar is also one of the main causes of tooth decay.
What are free sugars?
Free sugars are sugars that are added to food or drinks as well as sugars found naturally in honey, syrups, and unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies and purées. ‘These shouldn't make up more than 5% of the energy (calories) you get from food and drink each day.’ NHS website
Free sugars can be found in so many food products including sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, some fizzy drinks, fruit juices as well as sugars found in natural foods such as fruit and vegetables, it’s easy to see how the sugar stacks up each day.
UK Sugar Recommended daily allowance (RDA)
The UK Government recommends that Adults should have no more than 30g of free sugars a day (7 sugar cubes per day) Children 7-10 (6 sugar cubes per day) and 4-6 (5 sugar cubes per day)
