Is sugar bad for you? Yes! Let’s talk about why.

Sugar has been heavily studied, and it’s been concluded that a high amount of added sugar is significantly associated with 45 negative health effects.

Some of the potential side effects of sugar consumption include:
• Diabetes
• Asthma
• Depression
• Stroke
• Heart attack
• Gout
• Hypertension
• Dementia
• Cancer
• Early death

Even if you don’t have a weight problem, it’s crucial for your health to cut down your sugar intake. Forty percent of people with normal weight have metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome includes high blood glucose, fatty liver, and high cholesterol. Sugar is very toxic—fructose may be as toxic as alcohol.

When you eat sugar, you’re supporting the harmful sugar industry. On top of that, you’re destroying your body.

Switching to keto-friendly desserts and sugar-free chocolate is a great way to transition off of a high-sugar diet.

  • Lorene Holmes Rule says:

    Thank you, Dr Berg, you continue to encourage me in my quest to eliminate sugar from my diet.
    Thanks to you, I no longer have a fatty liver.

  • Manflynil says:

    Dr Berg, thank you for these caring and informative videos that you freely provide.

  • Karin Berryman says:

    This is yet another excellent video of yours Dr Berg! I quit sugar the day I started following you and started Keto IF! Not only did I lose weight, but my husband started Keto IF shortly after I did and knows how bad sugar really is and subsequently he very seldom has sugar now!! Also, sugar is so bad for teeth too! I call sugar white poison!!

  • e tric says:

    Our brain has a crazy reflex for sugar. Not easy to stop that reflex. Thank you Dr. Berg.

    • Peace Ninja says:

      Sugar straight up is a drug. There are withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit.

    • James says:

      Thankfully, my subconscious lets me not crave “sugar”.

    • KT says:

      ​@peaceninja4338 you’re right. there is an episode of 60 minutes where doctors compare sugar cravings to a cocaine addiction.

    • Mark White says:

      I quit sugar 2 years ago and experienced withdrawals. It took me 2 weeks to stop shaking. I had no idea what was going on because I didn’t know it was addictive. I was weak, shaking, nervous and confused. My wife brought me a Dr. Pepper (my old favorite) and I stopped shaking in less than a minuite. I then knew what was going on.

  • Mary Sh says:

    I also didn’t have any health issues, and my weight was normal, but after this healthy diet that you introduced here, helped me to understand the meaning of a healthy lifestyle and a healthy body. Thank you 😊

  • Helene Vion says:

    Thank you for your persistence against such a huge Goliath that the sugar industry is!

  • A T says:

    Former sugar addict here. Haven’t had sugar in 3 weeks. The withdrawals are real and had a mental fight to stay away from it. Candida in my gut also makes craving worse. Going to continue loving myself.

    • Gabriel Flame says:

      Hey I have Candida as well and I’m currently 3 days in to a two week sugar cleanse. Please give me any tips that you used to help you. I am seriously craving sugar. It’s strange. I quite smoking last year and this sugar addiction is far more severe and difficult to break. I’m really struggling
      :((( best of luck to you ❤

    • Matej 92 says:

      How are you dealing with candida ? Are you planning to just avoid sugar or you want to go through some type of detox -diet ?

    • Shadow Saint485 says:

      You can do it! Keep going once you’re free of it, you’ll feel so much better, and you won’t regret it. Pay close attention to all ingredient labels cause they put sugar in almost everything. It’s almost overwhelming trying to find something to eat without sugar added

    • EyeSea says:

      Turpen tine (I put the space to hopefully avoid the algorithm) therapy is great for candida.

  • Living on the Tyne - North East History says:

    I stopped eating sugar from an earlier video of yours and let me tell you from eating chocolate biscuits everyday to stopping I went through a period where I was almost angry that I didn’t have sweets but then I got over it and my cravings went. It was so hard. But I’m a very fussy eater so there’s not much that I like to eat.

  • Anmar M. says:

    I stopped processed Sugar since April of this year, Once i passed the first week without sugar things got easier. I still treat my self once a month, Here is the summary of the results:
    – Im calm almost all the time now,
    – Less stomach issues,
    – Less brain fogging
    – steady energy the whole day,
    – Deep sleep,
    – Easy to wakeup from sleep,
    – Lost around 7kgs (approx. 15 pound) without extra workout,
    – no more headaches,
    – Less Joins pain and stiffness ,
    – No more sudden increase speed in heartbeats (I dont know what its called),
    – and my eyesight better,
    – i used to test my glucose level in the morning it used to be between 105 – 118 , since i stopped processed sugar the highest i found my glucose level in morning was 98 usually around 85.

    This is my personal Experience, I still enjoy 3 meals a day, with one day a week fasting (Breakfast and dinner nothing but water and tea in between), and i enjoy eating fruits almost daily, I try to avoid processed food as much as possible.

    My next goal is to cut down on Cooking Vegetable oils.

    i feel much much better and several health issues gone.
    Thank you Dr. Eric for the great tips and advices.

  • L G says:

    Because of you Dr. Berg, I no longer consume regular suger. I switched over to stevia. I’m so much more healthier and I lost weight without exercising.Thank you.

  • Anonymous says:

    My mother’s quality of life was ruined by sugar. Obesity, severe depression, dental issues, diabetes II, dementia and early death. Being a first hand witness, I believe I can speak for her – It wasn’t worth it!!!

    • Jean paul Tongeren says:

      true story

    • Shadow Saint485 says:

      Yep, I’m currently going through that with both of my parents. It’s extremely difficult, and I don’t want to end up like that. It truly is heartbreaking to see what a terrible diet can do to one’s way of life.

    • Joe K says:

      Same story but I’ve turned my experience around. I took a vow to NEVER end up like my Mom. It helps on days when I get lazy as to get right back to working out like a mad man and eating clean.

    • Mark White says:

      Same for me however, 2 years ago I made a change and it’s been great since. I was so packed with visceral fat, on 7 medications and in poor health. No more medications for me now and 52 pounds lighter. This at 61 years old.

    • Jinn Doe says:

      @Mark White
      Good for you. 👏

  • Yankee 🌹 Rose says:

    Thank you for opening our eyes and helping to keep us healthy Dr.. Berg ❤ Blessings!

  • Kim berley says:

    I quit sugar on September 1st and transitioned onto a raw plant based lifestyle. Now, 30 days sugar-free and feeling great. But days 15 – 18, I felt like I was going through a drug withdrawal and it was horrible. I pressed in and with the power of prayer i got through that horrible part. I will never eat sugar again to avoid those withdrawal symptoms. SUGAR IS THE ACCEPTABLE LEGAL DRUG THAT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE IT IS KILLING YOU, WHILE IT IS. Desserts spelt backwards = stressed. Sugar is a toxic body stressor.

  • Victoria Kneece-Tillison says:

    I love Dr. Berg!!! He is a wealth of information that is so needed.

  • Mark Whatley says:

    Eliminating sugar from my diet was easier than I thought. And what a difference it made. I agree that sugar and alcohol are the two worst things you can put into your body.

  • Joseph Burns says:

    I’ll be 56 next month, and I would’ve never thought that I could give up sugar and carbs, but I did on your healthy keto plan 1-1/2 years ago. OMAD for about 4 months now, and I would’ve never thought I could do that. It’s pretty amazing what you can do if you discipline yourself enough to make certain changes in your life! Just remember, willpower and discipline are what it takes to achieve your goals in life!

    • David Jones says:

      Great work!!!

    • Seattle Six says:

      Same here… got tired of enriching the pharmaceutical industries on diabetes meds ($400/mth after insurance) and just getting progressively worse even after dietary ‘training’ from the medical community. All I know is the food pyramid is a horrible curse on everyone especially those who rely on institutional food like the military, nursing homes and hospitals

  • Anne and Her Country Garden says:

    Dear Dr. Berg, thanks for the vital info on sugar!! In 2019 when I was addicted to M&M’s, McDonald shakes, and other junk food, my sister, a nurse, stayed with me for a week so that I could completely detox from sugar and all junk food. I was sick for the first 3 days, but got better each day afterward. Still to this day, I never consume sugar, white flour, or any processed foods. I never have to count calories, I don’t gain weight, and never go hungry.


    Dr. Berg, I wanted to express my deep gratitude for your incredibly insightful video on quitting sugar. Your expertise and guidance are truly invaluable! Thank you for helping us make healthier choices.

  • gualeguay crecido says:
