If you overdid it with the sugar during the holidays, you’re not alone. It’s time to put down the cookies, the booze, and the bad decisions and focus on flattening that Santa Claus belly.

However, you can put an end to the symptoms of sugar addiction by altering your habits to make detoxing off the sweet stuff easier than you think.
