10 Easiest Ways To Cut Sugar


Most of us could do with cutting down on the amount of added sugar we eat.

On average, people are gorging on more than triple the recommended daily amount of sugar – which is set at 30g or seven teaspoons.

Some of the ways in which sugar can severely impact your health include liver damage, weight gain, elevated blood sugar, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

But if you could curb your sweet tooth you could significantly boost your health. In fact one study found that it could take as little as nine days to see improvements after going sugar-free.

Here are 10 ways to slash sugar from your diet from the experts at Nosh Detox:

1. Move to denser sugars which are mixed with fibre so that they take longer to break down in your body – that way you won’t crash and burn with a sugar rush

2. Eat food in its most natural state – there is less likelihood that it has been processed with added sugars

3. Opt for cold-press or fresh juices as opposed to pasteurised – the heat used to eliminate harmful bacteria in the pasteurisation process also removes good bacteria

4. Eat more often – when you are satiated you don’t crave sugar and it becomes harder to eat

5. Try a juice fast with blended juices – you cannot do a juice fast and crave anything sweet straight after, cravings will be significantly curbed

6. Try to incorporate good protein and good fats into every meal – it keeps you full for longer and leaves you feeling satisfied. It also controls your blood glucose levels

7. Take a good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, including omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D3 Nutrient deficiencies make cravings worse and the fewer nutrient deficiencies, the fewer cravings. Certain nutrients also seem to improve blood sugar control including chromium, vitamin B3 and magnesium

8. Sleep and rest more – when we are tired we turn to sweets instinctively to give us fake energy

9. Exercise regularly – this will help to curb your cravings

10. Stay away from artificial sweeteners – they do little to alter your desire for sweets and they can be just as bad for you as sugar
