Need to cut some sugar from your diet right now? Try some or all of these easy ways to eat less sugar today!
Sugary is tasty to eat and probably a part of many of your favorite foods. However, unless eaten in moderation, it’s not so good for your overall health. As covered by LiveScience, sugar can make you gain weight and it increases your risk of diabetes and other conditions. It may even be taking the place of more healthy foods in your diet, so it’s high time that sugar take a backseat in your daily eating habits.
While cutting out some sugar may seem hard at first, there are some easy ways to eat less sugar you can start doing today!
Before you toss out most of your kitchen, take the time to learn more about sugar recommendations and the differences between natural and added sugars. Foods like fruits and vegetables have natural sugars that won’t add to your diabetes risk or weight gain like a candy bar would because the liver processes the two differently.
One of the easy ways to eat less sugar is by knowing the names for added sugars you may see on food labels. These include dried cane syrup, molasses and sucrose. Avoid products that have several sugar forms listed on the label.
