  • During - symptoms your body may experience during the elimination. The severity of your withdrawal symptoms will largely depend on the amount of sugar you typically include in your diet. For those who don’t have a lot of added sugars, we may not experience major symptoms. While those who eat a lot of candy and sweets may feel more severe effects. Think of your symptoms as your body’s way of detoxing chemicals from your body. Once your symptoms pass you will start to feel better and in most cases will start to feel great, with a big increase in energy. Your body needs time, but you can get there. Symptoms include some of the following and will vary in length, but typically fade after a few days. The ability to eat fruits with natural sugars may help mediate some of these.
  1. Headaches
