Pesky SUGAR it’s EVERYWHERE!!!
How Do I Stop Eating Sugar
Just start one day at a time.
And we know how difficult it can be to avoid sugar.
It’s flippin’ everywhere, on everything, hidden in places we don’t think, it has us surrounded……..
Sugar is addictive, it’s fattening,
it’s ageing, it’s slowing you down,
it’s messing with your hormones,
It’s giving you energy crashes.
Unless you want to be a hermit,
socialising & heading out
for food can be a some what tricky….
But not impossible…….
When YOU get the real facts
it makes things a bit easier.
Here’s another one of my famous
“Top Tip Lists” top keep you on track today.
1: Don’t add it to foods.
This is the easiest and most basic way to immediately
reduce the amount of sugar you’re eating.
Biggest targets: coffee and tea.
2: Don’t be fooled by “healthy sugar” disguises.
Brown sugar, raw sugar,
agave nectar, stevia & sweeteners….
it’s all pretty much the same thing as far as
your body is concerned.
3: Reduce or eliminate processed carbohydrates.
Most processed carbs — cereals, bread, biscuits,
pastas & snacks, gare loaded with flour & other ingredients that
convert to sugar in the body almost as
fast as pure glucose.
That sugar gets stored as triglycerides – or fat.
5: Watch out for “fat-free” “low-fat” snacks.
One of the biggest myths is that if a food
is fat-free/low-fat it doesn’t make you fat.
Fat-free doesn’t mean calorie-free,
& all fat-free snacks are loaded with sugar.
Keeping you locked into sugar addiction.
6: Become a food detective.
To reduce sugar,
you have to know where it is.
Start reading labels or better still cook
7: Beware of artificial sweeteners.
They can increase cravings
for sugar & also deplete the body’s stores
of chromium, a
nutrient crucial for blood-sugar metabolism.
8: Do the math.
Look at the label where it says “total sugars” & divide
the number of grams by four.
That’s the number of teaspoons of sugar you are
This exercise alone should scare you to death.
9: Limit fruit.
Fruit has sugar, but it also has fibre & good nutrients.
Just don’t overdo it.
Go for veggies as much as possible and eat local organic
that is in season and hasn’t been sprayed with pesticides.
For fat-loss purposes have a break from fruit for a few
weeks and load up on veggies and see your middle shrink.
10: Eliminate fruit juice.
It’s a pure sugar hit.
Hope that helps you get into the sugar free groove
Because once that sugar fog lifts
You will be unstoppable!!!
