Easy Tricks To Cut Added Sugar Out Of Your Diet

Here are some amazing tricks to cut down on sugar from http://www.emergencyemail.org

Every day, many people make the choice to become healthier and one of the best ways to do that is to cut added sugar out of your diet. A lot of people cut out things like soda, cookies, and sweets and think they’re good to go, but the scary truth is that there are added sugars hiding in lots of foods that you’d never suspect, even foods that don’t have a sweet taste. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to cut the added sugar out of your diet once and for all.

Read Labels

This may be the best advice I can give you. Almost every type of processed food you can buy in a supermarket contains added sugar. What makes things worse is that some products may have multiple different kinds of sugar. Staying away from processed foods entirely is your best option, but if that’s not possible, be sure to read every label so you know what you’re putting into your body.

Drink Water

You’re far more likely to snack on foods with added sugar when your body thinks you’re hungry. Unfortunately, when you’re thirsty, your brain still sends hunger signals, which can lead to mindless snacking. Drink water all throughout the day and not only will the hunger fade, but you’ll be able to tell when you’re actually hungry and won’t get added sugars from convenience snacks.

Get More Sleep

Think about how you feel when you’re tired. You likely look for a quick way to give yourself energy. One of the easiest ways to do that is to consume sugary foods. You can avoid these feelings of tiredness by getting more sleep.

If you have trouble getting enough sleep at night, try setting a schedule and stick to it. Set a time that you have to be in bed and then turn off all electronics, including the television, tablets, and cell phones. By getting enough sleep, you won’t be as reliant on sugary substances to get you through the day.

Replace Sugary Snacks With Whole Foods

The best way to avoid snacks with added sugar is to avoid buying them in the first place. Instead, replace them with foods that are naturally sweet. There’s a reason that fruit is known as nature’s candy. It’s because it tastes sweet like candy, but is much better for you to eat.

Eating fruits like bananas, apples, and strawberries give you many vitamins and minerals, but it’s also the best way to satisfy the sweet tooth that just won’t leave you alone.

Stop Eating Ketchup

The amount of added sugar that is put into ketchup is mind-blowing, yet it is the number one condiment used in America today. Instead of dipping your fries in ketchup, try using salsa instead. Salsa gives you the tangy taste you’re looking for without all the sugar you don’t need.

From obesity to health issues, there’s an endless number of reasons you should stop eating added sugar. Hopefully, some of these tips will help you break free from the grips of sugar and lead you into a healthier lifestyle.


Good low calorie snack tip

Looking for a smooth, creamy, crunchy, filling snack? Look no further than your frig for a Greek nonfat yogurt filled with fruit in the bottom, 120 calories. Now reach for a box of reduced fat buttery round crackers, Five crackers only 70 calories Then use the crackers to dip into the yogurt. Don’t forget to stir the yogurt so you can have fruit in every dip. 190 calories, now that’s a not guilty snack.








At home low-calorie snacks that are filling

Your time at home can be very rewarding or it can mean up to a few numbers up on your scale. Watching your weight while around the house can be very strategic, so often we will go for whatever we can get our hands on very quick. Watching the calories in what we eat should be with purpose. The purpose of staying healthy by keeping our weight down, and the only way this can be done is by watching what we eat.

Only when we have fear of gaining weight, the confidence of doing something about it comes. But it’s really about the fight we began when we start to take control of our health. Taking control of our health is done one step at a time.

This how I started: By eating smaller portions of not so healthy snack foods with a big portion of food that is healthy.

Here is something you may want to try:  take 2 red delicious apples 70 calories = 140 calories, peel them or if you prefer the skins, put them in a blender, then get about 4 large marshmallows- the white soft candy, 100 calories, cut them up,  put in the blender, then blend.

Put it in your favorite bowl, then drink water, it helps to fill you up and here you have a nutritious snack that is filling. You could just eat the one apple and marshmallows bite by bite, but the secret is eating enough to fill you up, so you will need two apples. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
