What are the consequences of completely abstaining from eating sugar?

Dr. Yelena Tikhomirova, a Russian nutritionist, announced that those wishing to lose excess weight should completely abandon the consumption of sugar.


In an interview with the newspaper "Izvestia", the specialist confirmed that "the sudden and complete abandonment of sugar will not lead to any negative consequences for health, compared to the complete abandonment of alcohol and drugs."


She said: "If a person who wants to lose weight completely and suddenly gives up sweets, nothing bad will happen to him at all. Because giving up sugar is not as bad as completely giving up alcohol or drugs. Because when a person gives up psychotropic substances that cause addictive It suffers from a crisis of abstinence from these substances. But if a person suddenly stops eating sweets, they will not suffer from this crisis and there will be no serious health consequences.”


She pointed out that "if a person wants to lose weight, it is not necessary to completely abandon sweets. Currently, "alternative sweets" are sold in stores, made of isomaltooligosaccharide, a carbohydrate that is not absorbed by the digestive system, containing sugar substitutes.
