And we know how difficult it can be to avoid
Its flippin everywhere, on everything, it has us
Unless you want to be a hermit,socialising
& heading out
for food can be a some what tricky….
But not impossible…….
Here’s another one of my famous
“Top Tip Lists” top
keep you on track over the wekeend.
YOu can see I LOVE writing lists 🙂
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, turbinado sugar, raw sugar,
agave nectar, stevia & sweetmers….
it’s all pretty much the same thing as far as
your body is concerned.
3: Make a real effort to reduce or eliminate
Most processed carbs — breads, biscuits, pastas &snacks,
are loaded with flour & other ingredients that
convert to sugar in the body almost as
fast as pure glucose.
That sugar gets stored as triglycerides,
which is a way of saying fat.
5: Watch out for “fat-free” snacks.
One of the biggest myths is that if a food
is fat-free it doesn’t make you fat.
Fat-free doesn’t mean calorie-free,
and most 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 first.
Start reading labels.
7: Beware of artificial sweeteners.
Unfortunately, they can increase cravings
They can also deplete the body’s stores
of chromium, a nutrient crucial for blood-sugar metabolism.
8: Do the maths.
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 fiber & good nutrients.
Just don’t overdo it. Go for veggies as much as possible.
For fat-loss purposes, keep it to 1 or 2 small servings a day
& try to make most of them low-glycemic (grapefruit, apples, berries).
10: Eliminate fruit juice.
It’s a pure sugar hit with none of the fiber and
less of the nutrients that are found in the fruit.
Hope that helps you get into the sugar free groove
Because once that sugar fog lifts
You will be unstoppable!!!
