  • We all know added sugar isn't healthy, but is avoiding it worth it?

  • We wanted to find out, so we asked three sugar addicts to change their diets for a month to see what happens when you give up sugar.

  • For breakfast I usually have like a Starburst.

  • I'm interested in this challenge because as I started working in office jobs I went from 125 to 165, so.

  • Should I not be drinking this thing?

  • I feel bad for everyone in my life because it does feel like my mood a lot of the time is directly tied to my diet.

  • I'll get stressed out.

  • I get headaches if I don't eat sugar.

  • I'm 27, I think it's time to start eating like an adult and not like a 16 year old.

  • It's just been an emotional roller coaster of a week.

  • I fucked up and ordered an old fashion.

  • What do I drink to get caffeine?

  • Soda.

  • You could drink coffee.

  • I don't want to drink black coffee.

  • Black coffee straight is shitty.

  • Super Bowl sucks 'cause I just got to sit there and eat like corn chips that tasted really crappy.

  • And then today, work was free cupcake day.

  • This sucks.

  • Went to Disneyland yesterday.

  • Everyone was eating tasty treats.

  • I couldn't have any of these tasty treats, so I had a pickle.

  • I feel like a weirdo 'cause I'm in the grocery store like looking at the back of everything to see what's in it.

  • And I never wanted to be that guy, and now I'm that guy.

  • Any positive changes?

  • I don't know, not really.

  • Ugh, I hope it's worth it.

  • So, last week was really bad, but this week I'm kind of used to it.

  • And actually slipped up, and grabbed a can of Coke and drank it.

  • Last night I drank soda to try to stay up late 'cause I was doing work.

  • And I feel like junk this morning.

  • I have thinned down a bit.

  • I've lost a few pounds.

  • I feel like I'm more positive.

  • I feel like my energy levels are more level.

  • And I don't have these lows.

  • This is actually not that bad.

  • I feel like, I don't know, I feel like I could do this.

  • I feel like I can actually stop eating so much sugar.

  • I lost five pounds.

  • That's crazy.

  • Five pounds of fat according to the body comp. test.

  • So yeah, I feel pretty good about the direct result.

  • I actually can confidently say, "I don't miss sugar that much."

  • Crazy, mind blowing, life changing?

  • Yes, all of the above.

  • Planning my meals, I'm using all fresh ingredients.

  • The cool thing about this diet is it's making me cook again, which I haven't done in an embarrassingly long time.

  • Kind of like looking at what you're putting in your body, looking at the back of the ingredients, or just being conscious of it was huge.

  • In the third week I was like wow, I'm like happy.

  • I'm really happy right now and I feel calm and not stressed out.,

  • I drink more water now.

  • I am glad I did it.

  • It's all for the better.

  • Yeah, I don't want that diabetes.

  • My dad's got it.

  • I don't wanna get that.

  • Ew.

  • At the beginning I was like I can't wait 'til the month is over so that I can go back and eat all the sugar that I'm missing.

  • And now I don't even think I'm gonna do that.

  • I think I'm gonna stick with it for a little bit longer.

  • Who am I?

  • Who am I?

  • Am I an adult now?

  • It's so good.

We all know added sugar isn't healthy, but is avoiding it worth it?
