3 Tips On Cutting Down Sugar

We all know too much sugar can be bad for your health. This article presents three different ways to help you reduce sugar intake to stay healthy.

 

  1. Avoid high-sugar sweets. Don’t tempt yourself by having sugary foods in your pantry or fridge like cookies, candies, or ice cream. First recommendation is to not make it an option. If you do happen to have a sweet tooth, substitute high sugar sweets to healthier options that are homemade, or use sugar alternatives like Stevia or Monk Fruit. 
  2. Eat Consistent Meals. Eat nutritious meals three times per day, so you won’t give into cravings. Eating three consistent healthy meals allows your body to predict how much insulin to release and at what time. It will help stabilize your blood sugar and cortisol levels. 
  3. Eat protein and fibers. You can help stabilize your blood sugar by eating more protein and fibers. Good snack options are an apple with nut butter, a hard boiled egg and pistachios, or hummus and vegetables.
