How to Cut Half Your Sugar Intake

How to Cut Half Your Sugar Intake

Sugar is a sneaky enemy. As the seasons change it can be easy to let sugar creep back into our diet with seasonal snacks. But the risks far outweigh the benefits. If you are overindulging obesity, diabetes, and other diseases can become risk factors for you. Plus no one likes to have a sugar crash! Making these surprising changes can help you cut your sugar intake by half!

1)  Cut Out Health Bars

Breakfast bars are a quick way to have breakfast on the go, but unfortunately, hide extra sugars. This can lead to a sugar crash mid-morning and overindulge at lunch. Instead of grabbing a breakfast bar, go for a handful of nuts and a few raisins or pieces of dried fruit. The fruit and raisins contain sugar, but of the naturally occurring variety.

2) Watch the Sauce

I don’t know about you, but when I have a sauce that seems heavy on veggies, like pasta sauce, I usually don’t think of sugar. But store-bought pasta sauces are known to contain a ton of added sugars. Make sure that you are reading the labels as you shop and look for the cans that have less sugar. Even better? Make your own at home.

3) Swap Sugar For Seasonings

If you like to have oatmeal in the morning, try switching out the sugar for cinnamon! It adds a spicy kick and tricks your taste buds into thinking that the oats are sweeter than they really are. This works with almost any breakfast food.

4) Keep a Food Diary

With our busy lives, it is hard to even remember what we ate throughout the day! Take a small food diary with you and write down everything you eat for a week. This will show you where your temptations are and at what time of day. From there you can make an educated plan of attack to keep sugar out of your daily routines.

5) Say No to Fruit Juice

You may think that you are still being healthy by choosing fruit juice but the sad truth is fruit juice often packs a punch of sugar, especially if you are getting it from concentrate. An easy fix is to swap out the sugary juice for sparkling water with fresh fruit cut into it. You still get a hint of the fruitiness without all the added sugar.

Cutting out sugar from your diet may seem impossible to do alone. Luckily, that’s where Emulin+ comes in! Check out all the benefits Emulin+ can have for you and your health!
