It may seem like an almost impossible task — no added sugar, no agave or honey or artificial sweeteners for a month straight — but if this video shows us anything, it's that it can be done.

In the video above by Buzzfeed's Life/Changes channel, three brave sugar addicts (seriously, one has Starburst for breakfast) give up all kinds of sugar for a month. With different goals like weight loss, improving mental health and learning how to cook and eat like an adult, each participant was asked to keep a weekly update on how they felt.

As many of us are sugar addicts or sugar enthusiasts to say the least, we all know the over-consumption of sugar can lead to major health problems. And just like any addiction, sugar withdrawal is also common for people who decide to give it up, and this can cause headaches, shivers and fatigue, the Guardian notes.

Although the participants in the video weren't too happy the first week without the white stuff, it seems like a lot can change within two. Watch the video above to find out how long each participant lasted and how they felt.
