In fact, the average person consumes around 22 teaspoons of sugar on a daily basis, which is more than four times what the FDA recommends. If you think you may be secretly (or not so secretly) addicted to sugar, this plan from expert David Zinczenko is for you. This 14-day plan will take you through a full dietary reset to detox and balance your body. You'll be surprised how much your mood, cravings, and health improve in just two weeks.

Healthy Snacks Are a Must
If you like to snack, the best time of day to do so is in the afternoon before dinner. Early morning snacking and late night refrigerator trips can pack on the pounds. Instead, mindfully choosing a healthy, low-sugar snack in the middle of the afternoon is ideal. David Zinczenko suggests popcorn as the best snack because it's low in calories and also super versatile--sprinkle with olive oil and salt for a savory snack or cinnamon for a sweet treat.
