Kristen Bell, whose voice we know as Anna in the hit Disney film Frozen, has quit sugar.
The Hollywood actress and mother-of-two has gone so far as to label the stuff “toxic”.
Kristen, 36, says that she and her husband, actor and comedian Dax Shepard, undertook a 30-day sugar fast before she fell pregnant as a challenge to see if they could do it. And they could!
“[At] the end of 30 days, we ate a bunch of brownies and cookies and nonsense. And within five minutes we looked at each other and went, ‘Oh, my God. I’m going to barf. This is toxic’. It simply felt like our bodies didn’t want it,” she told US Weekly in the past.
The folks at [iquitsugar.com|I Quit Sugar] are asked daily if it’s safe to quit sugar when pregnant and their answer is a resounding “YES!”.
The IQS philosophy is all about cutting out processed junk and simply eating real foods, so it’s very safe to undertake. But, as always, we think it’s a great idea to work alongside a health professional throughout your pregnancy.
