How to Kick the Sugar Habit

Even small changes can help to reduce your sugar consumption while gradually training your taste buds to enjoy and even prefer less sweet foods.

Read Food Labels

Sugar has many different disguises, for example, dextrose, lactose, sucrose, brown rice syrup and molasses are all different forms of sugar. Often sugar is added to reduced-fat foods to make it tastier.

Eat More Protein

Eating more protein can help curb sugar cravings, and high-protein foods are digested more slowly and don’t cause blood-sugar spikes. Balance out your plate with plenty of fibre-rich green vegetables, which will also keep you feeling full for longer.

Drink Less Coffee

This helps to prevent caffeine highs and is useful if you prefer to take your coffee with sugar.

Take More Exercise

Exercising helps to balance your blood sugar levels while boosting energy and reducing stress. It also increases endorphin levels, improving your mood. As you start to feel healthier, you will most likely find you prefer healthier, less sugary foods.
