Did you know that reducing your sugar intake reduces the risk for numerous conditions and improves your overall health?
This includes:
– weight loss/prevent obesity.
– reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and fatty liver disease.
– improved energy levels.
– clearer skin.
– avoid mood swings.
– reduced inflammation.
– reduced risk of digestive issues.
– reduced risk of dental plaque & cavities.
… the list goes on.
Here are some simple tips to reduce your sugar intake:
1. Sugar sweetened drinks (e.g. specialty coffee, sodas, fruit juices, etc.) are the most significant sources of sugar in the diet. Replace them with unsweetened herbal tea, coffee without sugar, and water.
2. Avoid simple carbs (e.g. white flour, white pasta, white rice, etc.) because they cause a spike in your blood sugar levels.
3. Shop and plan your meals for the entire week on the weekend to avoid the unhealthful snacks when you are “hangry”.
4. Avoid artificial sweeteners. They may contain no calories, but they may exacerbate your sugar cravings.
5. Consume whole foods, since processed foods are more likely to contain added sugars.
6.Replace sugar with herbs & spices (e.g. cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, etc.).
Make it a great day!
