Top 5 tips to help you KICK SUGAR!

Ohh sugar! How can something so good be potentially so bad for you!? Personally I love to indulge in a bit of fast food, sugary drinks and foods for my weekend cheat meals! But the issue for many is that it’s too easy to let these food creep into our daily life. SO we thought we would put together 5 AWESOME ways to help you kick your sugar cravings!

 

1. FRUIT WATER

Instead of just picking up a can of Fanta try adding some chopped fresh fruit to your water. All you need is the fruits of your choice and a glass or shaker.

2. PLAN YOUR CHEAT MEALS 

Plan in when you are going to have your cheat food, this can be a cheat meal or day depending on your goal. Put some time aside to enjoy some of these high sugar foods but in moderation. Knowing you are allowed to have them for example on a weekend will help you stay motivated during the week.

3. LOW CALORIE SWEETENERS, SAUCES AND CORDIALS

The market is full of low calorie, low sugar alternatives….. You just have to look for them! Some of my favorites are the Robinson's no added sugar cordial range, low calorie sweeteners such as Splenda and low calorie/zero calorie sauces such as Walden Farms products.

4. USE SPICES

Cutting sugary foods out of your diet during the week can leave your diet looking a little bland and your taste buds under stimulated. Our top tip would be to spice up your meals by adding in some spices to jazz things up. Our top 5 would be Ginger, Paprika, Cinnamon, Chilli and Cumin.

5. INCLUDE PROTEINS & FATS

Healthy sources of protein and fats help control blood sugar levels, keeping you on a level playing field all day long. They also provide a feeling of satiety, knocking any feelings on hunger on the head.
