5 Ways To Cut Down On Sugar

 
Eating too much sugar is really irresponsible and one of the worst things you could do to your body. Here are some of the reasons why,  just (Click Here)

Whilst sugar is naturally found in foods such as Fruits & Vegetables, this does not have the same effect on your blood stream and  is considered very healthy.. providing you’re not  getting a load of fruit and blending it into a smoothie or juice to drink, despite popular belief (Click Here)

The danger comes from added sugar in processed foods. For example the average American consumes 15 to 17 teaspoons which is 68 grams of added sugar per day.

This far exceeds the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake)  which says  2 ¼  tablespoons which is  9 grams for men and  1 ½ tablespoons which is 6 grams for women.

Now It’s time to share with you  the 5 simplest ways to  stop eating so much sugar!

Sugary Drinks & Side Snacks- Did you know these two side by side have contributed to 44% of added sugar in America’s daily consumption? When you are no longer a part of this statistic you will feel so much healthier and would’ve lost so much weight, and this is only the first one!  (Click Here)   

These so-called “Healthy drinks” such as Smoothies, Fruit juices & Sports drinks are really just packed with a load of added sugar.

For example a fruit juice drink such as Apple has more than 49 grams which is 12 teaspoons of sugar, and about 12 to 15 Apples in it.. would any of you reading this eat that in one sitting ? so why would you drink that ?

Instead replace your fizzy drink intake with Water or Milk (if you’re not intolerant of the latter)  (Click Here) 

Regular side snacks such as Cookies and Candy contain lots of sugar, so of course people looking to eat better look for “Healthy” snack alternatives.

What you must know though, is that snacks such as Protein bars, Granola bars etc contain as much or sometimes even more sugar than many notorious chocolate bars (Click Here)

For example Granola bars contain as much as 32 grams of sugar which is  8 teaspoons. The food manufacturers will not tell you the truth if they can possibly help it, without being forced.. this is why we are becoming health smart on here.

 

Stop Eating Sugary Breakfast Foods- Breakfast cereals..oh man, the majority of your favourites are packed with too much sugar, and has been destroying your health for the longest time.

12 to 18 grams of sugar is found in the most popular unhealthy breakfast cereals, so even if you stop eating Granola bars for breakfast those have to go too. Instead read this (Click Here)

Instead we should switch to cereals that are lower in sugar if cereal is really what you want, the other option is to stick to eating real wholesome food (examples below)

Having options such as Weetabix, Porridge, Avocado and  Eggs will have your sugar intake reduced and fibre and protein intake up, which will keep you fuller for longer and stop you from purely binge eating.

 

Don’t Keep Sugar In The House- Out of sight out of mind right? This way you are less likely to consume it. As I know my  Di1’s very well I know that you struggle mostly with craving snacks and sugary sweet foods  in the evening to late nights. It’s not just isolated to you guys/girls  though, I’ve found that this is a worldwide problem for those that have sugary foods in their homes.. thus eliminating it completely by not having it to tempt you if you crave sugary snacks will be a healthy move for you to make ASAP.

More to the point if you have health goals you want to achieve this year   then you’re just wasting your time, as you’ve given yourself an escape route to go back to your old habits.. rather than going all in and achieving your goal to lose weight and become more healthy (Click Here)

 

Eat More Protein & Fat – Eating Protein and fat has also been shown to reduce your food cravings, this is not just for breakfast you can add this to lunch and dinner too.

When you compare this to the sugary foods that you eat, and then before long you want to eat even more food and on and on, this is the smart choice to move to Protein and Fat-rich foods such as Meat, Fish, Full fat dairy products, Nuts & Avocado.

 

Read The Labels- I cannot say this enough When you go shopping  and pick up items “READ THE LABEL” look at the example earlier about the Granola bars and how food manufacturers hide stuff from us.

Your best bet is to read the labels yourself as the food manufacturers cannot be trusted to inform you that they’ve raised the sugar content up to extreme highs. But how do I read the labels?  And what does this all mean? I can help with all that (Click Here)   

 

 

 

THAT’S IT!

 

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…
