Easy sugar reducing tips!
- Educate Yourself
There is huge difference between added sugar and naturally occurring sugar. Naturally occurring sugar should not concern you. Educate yourself to understand the difference between two.
- Look for Aliases
Sugar is also mentioned as frustose, syrup and sucrose and probably any word ending in “ose”. If there are lot of sugar synonyms appearing in the label, do not make it a regular part of your diet.
- Rethink Your Drink
Soda is one of the biggest sources of sugar. It is found that 52 grams of sugar is derived from 12 ounce of Mountain Dew. Instead of sugar water try adding water with fresh fruits or go for unsweetened teas.
- Buy Unsweetened
Start making healthy picks, products with no added sugar will reduce your sugar intake to a great extent. Keep looking for unsweetened variety for your kitchen.
- Shop on a full stomach
