A single teaspoon of sugar contains 16 calories, which doesn’t seem like much. However, it is astonishing how quickly they add up.
When trying to lose weight, every calorie counts. One of the biggest things we must get past is the idea that “sugar” is only that thing we put in our coffee. Sugar is everywhere.
Here are five facts about sugar that can help boost weight-loss efforts…
The link between Sugar and Weight Gain
When we take into consideration that almost all diets come down to “calories consumed vs calories burned” it is not difficult to see how sugar can cause weight gain. Since added sugars cause an increase in calories in your food, it is a massive contributor to your daily calorie intake.
As a basic rule of thumb, burning 3,500 calories lets you burn about 0.5kg. This means that if you cut out 10 teaspoons of sugar (16 calories) you will be cutting 160 calories per day, which adds up to 1,120 calories in a week. This can mean consistently dropping half a kilogram every 3 weeks, by only cutting out 10 teaspoons of sugar a day! And of course, if you cut out more sugar per day, you can lose weight a bit quicker.
Common Sources of Sugar
The first step in cutting out sugar from your diet is by cutting out or even just limiting the obvious sources of sugar. These include things like soft drinks, cookies, cake, ice cream, cake, and other desserts. As mentioned, you don’t have to completely remove these from your diet, but just reduce the number of times per week you eat them, and also eat a smaller portion than usual.
Sneaky Sources of Sugar
In most cases, these are foods that don’t taste sweet, so you wouldn’t really expect them to contain sugar. To avoid added sugar from such foods, start reading the labels of the products you buy. Be on the lookout for things like salad dressing, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and mayonnaise as these may often contain high amounts of sugar.
Read the “nutritional facts” part of the label to make sure that you are getting the one with the lowest sugar content.
