Sweet lover? Adding extra sugar to a daily diet is unnecessary and definitely not healthy!
This week our challenge is to get rid of ADDED SUGARS!
ere’s a HUGE difference between the natural sugars found in foods, and the added sugars put in drinks and foods.
The scary thing is, these days sugar can be sneaky with at least 60 different names, making them difficult to spot when scanning labels.
In fact, here’s a great list with about 56 of them www.healthline.com/nutrition/56-different-names-for-sugar
It’s recommended that adults limit daily-added sugar intake to around 25 grams, or 6 teaspoons a day.
Up for a challenge this week? If so, try avoiding ANY added sugars (this includes food AND drinks)
Fruit? It’s absolutely fine … it brings in a wide-variety of vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients along with fiber.
But coffee or tea with sugar? SORRY!!!
Absolutely, positively MUST add a little sweetness, try these intead of sugar:
Raw Honey (go easy on this because the calories add up fast)
Be sure this week to check all nutrition labels …. even on items that don’t seem like they would have sugar (like bread, crackers and other processed foods) because sugar is added to pretty much everything.
Experience how much better the brain and body feels after only one week without added sugar.
Up for the challenge?!
