Reduce Sugar Intake

Weight loss is difficult problem for many people. One culprit that often sabotages diet plans is sugar. This sweet substance is high in calories and low in nutrition. Sugar is also craved by lots of folks, making it difficult to enjoy eating without it. Although you do not need to eliminate sugar completely to lose weight, it is necessary to cut down on its consumption. There are some strategies to make lowering your sugar consumption easier, thereby increasing your likelihood of dropping pounds.

Step 1

Read food labels for sugar content. A good guideline is that you do not want more than 10 g of sugar per 100 g of food. Sugar is also called sucrose, maltose and dextrose, among other names.

Step 2

Reduce your sugar consumption gradually. Reduce the amount of sugar in your recipes to half of what you usually use and cut down by a teaspoon or two of what you put in your coffee or tea. This will give your taste buds a chance to adjust without too much of a shock.

Step 3

Eliminate sugary soft drinks and fruit juices from your diet. These sugary beverages keep your sweet tooth alive, and it is possible to consume too much in a short amount of time. If you are a soft drink drinker, cutting out these beverages will make a big change in your sugar consumption.

Step 4

Eat a hot cereal for breakfast, such as oatmeal, instead of cold cereal, which is likely to be high in sugar. If you need a sweet start to your day, add a piece of fruit to your breakfast but avoid fruit juice, which is too concentrated in sugar.

Step 5

Take low-calorie snacks, such as whole-wheat crackers and string cheese or a banana, with you when you go to work or are on the go. This will help you resist the temptation to ingest a quick-packaged snack that is sure to have a high-sugar content.

Step 6

Reduce the amount of sugar you use in recipes. Many times, you can substitute apple sauce in place of sugar. Try some "sweet" spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg or apple pie spice, to add flavor to desserts.

Manna Blood Sugar Support is working for me. 2 Tablets with every meal is working. I have lost 6kg in weight. I have more control over my sugar cravings. I have cut down on my carbohydrates eating one slice of bread instead of 2 slices. I do cheat sometimes when I am in the Mall with all the food stalls and sweets in about every shop. Now what works for me and my husband is packing a small lunch box with low GI rolls and low fat cheese or light peanut butter. We try to keep clear of junk food, and taking my Blood Sugar Support Tablets regularly. I thank God for His grace and mercy and giving us wisdom to do the right thing .Be blessed, Rika 64years.

In December 2012 my doctor advised that I was at a prediabetes stage. My blood pressure and cholestrol were also high. I started following the Manna guides and eliminated all sugar, cakes, soft drinks, breads and pastas from my diet. I lost 15 kg in the 1st 4 months. More important is that my BP, cholestrol and insulin levels are all in control.My general health and feeling of wellbeing has improved drastically. Once I made up my mind it was and still is very easy to avoid sugars. I found the information on acid forming foods very useful and use that as my primary guide to select my meals and snacks. I never skip meals and will snack at least every 2 hours I also drink about 2 litres of fluids per day. No coffee, alcohol, soft drinks and no fruit juices. Just Water and Rooibos tea. I have reduced the portions of red meat, use Olive oil, minimised salt but still use normal butter. I keep Apples and nuts handy for snacking as I make sure I never get hungry. I also keep a supply of gum handy for the times I feel the need for something sweet.
