I just finished day 3 of Skinny Ms. detox yesterday — it was great! I had to add in a spoonful of peanut butter here and there but I can tell you it helped me mentally and physically. I feel great, I feel in control, and I do not have any urge to eat junk! And it really wasn’t that tough.

People with diabetes should avoid products listing more than 5 grams of sugar per serving, and some doctors recommend limiting fruit intake. You can limit your fructose intake by consuming fruits that are relatively lower in fructose (cantaloupe, grapefruit, strawberries, peaches, bananas) and avoiding added sugars such as those in sugar-sweetened beverages. Fructose is metabolized differently than other sugars and can significantly raise triglycerides.
