How to Lower Sugar Consumption
I know firsthand how hard it is to let go of our sugar fixes that make us feel good. Sugars are in our comfort foods but being sick and obese is the total opposite of comfort. The best thing to realize is that an alkaline body (healthy) does not crave sugar.
I suggest you increase your raw vegetables and water with lemon intake to alkaline your body to aid in lowering your sugar intake while learning how to cook tastier and healthier meals.
However, when you eliminate sugar you eliminate body fat no matter what else you eat or drink. I just would love for you to stay healthy on your weight loss life style change. I recommend you learn about alkaline foods.
3 Tips to Lower Your Sugar Consumption and Lose Weight
- If sugar is added to foods, avoid them.
- Limit sugar consumption in the mornings. If your cereal can change your milk color, don't eat it. High fiber cereal such as raisin bran is good cereal with low sugar.
- Eliminate or lower the consumption of foods that turn into sugar such a pasta and rice.
I hope you can see how sugar is the culprit to obesity and much of our illnesses and body pain. We have become a healthier nation but are still an battle with obesity as a whole.
It is important to change our eating habits and spare our children the same fate; after all they eat the way we eat the same way we adopt our eating habits from our parents. Remember the best way to lose weight fast is to avoid eating sugar. Good luck and be healthy!
