This Guy Gave Up Sugar and Alcohol For A Month

Sacha Harland was already a fit and healthy person before he proceeded to undergo this challenge of drinking no alcohol and eating nothing with added sugar.

However, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Every food that surrounds us contains added sugar. Vegetables, fruit, high fibre bread and unsaturated fat is what makes up Sacha’s diet. He is cranky and hungry until day 25, when he doesn’t crave sweet stuff in the morning.

In this 30-day trial, Sacha lost 8 pounds, his blood pressure dropped from 135 to 125, his cholesterol decreased by 8% and his blood sugar levels were a much lower number.

Here, moderation is not key. Cutting them out is optimal.
