That way, you will not be overwhelmed by the changes you’re making. If you have a diet that is very high in sugar, the best way to change it is to do it slowly – “slowly but surely”. To make it easy, consider incorporating one change into your lifestyle every one or two weeks.

          ♡ Watch What You Drink
Beverages and seemingly-healthy juices are loaded with sugar. To stop yourself from added sugar in your diet, take some time off from sugar-filled sodas, juices, and pre-packaged coffee and tea with added sugar content. Take note that alcohol also contains sugar, so you have to slow down on the booze as well. If you like fruits, why not eat it rather than drinking it in form of juices. The nutrients and fiber in raw fruits will definitely help you in your lifestyle change.

         ♡ Read What You Eat

Check out the calorie content of the food and how big the servings are per package. This things will tell you how much sugar you’re about to take when you eat it. It’s best if you can purchase something that’s low-fat since it only offers low amount of calories – this kind f food is also considered as diet foods.

         ♡ What Out from Hidden Sugars
Judging the food from its label won’t help you enough in avoiding sugar. It’s because some labels try to hide some facts in form of other words that you may not know. Here are some of the words that you may not know but it’s also used to describe sugar.
     1. Fructose
     2. Lactose
     3. Galacctose
     4. Glucose
     5. Maltose
     6. Or any word that ends with ‘ose’.

         ♡ Choose Complex Carbohydrates
Sugar is also a carbohydrate and these carbohydrates are simply long chains of sugar molecules. However, hot all carbohydrates are the same. Some of these have short chains of sugar that can be torn down by the body easily. Complex carbohydrates are usually found in legumes, beans, and whole grains. It’s far better to eat compared to white rice, sugary processed cereals, bread, and pasta if you want a sugar-free lifestyle.

         ♡ Artificial Sweeteners
If you love baking and pastry products, eating less sugar can be very difficult. Fortunately, there’s a wide range of artificial sweeteners available in the market for people who want to lessen their sugar intake while enjoying those tasty treats. Artificial sweeteners such as Splenda can be used in baking with excellent results.

With these things, having a sugar-free lifestyle isn’t that hard to achieve. You just have to take it slowly as you watch yourself create a whole new healthy lifestyle. Well, taking some sugar won’t hurt sometimes, so you don’t have to treat yourself badly by avoiding sweet treats in the holidays.
