Start eliminating sugar for a healthier life. The modern western diet typically consists mostly of sugar, highly processed grains, and lots of food additives that are anything but food.
Added sugars hide in 74 % of processed foods, but to make it more difficult for consumers, they are listed under more than 60 different names: corn sugar, barley malt, dextrose, fructose, glucose, high-fructose glucose syrup, honey, maple syrup, agave syrup, rice syrup, invert sugar, isoglucose, levulose, maltose, molasses, sucrose, just to mention a few.
Eliminating sugar from your diet is not that easy thing.
You may know you should but you just want it! Breaking sugar addiction with this simple and highly effective, real-foods based program!
Most of us have a sweet tooth! A large amount (27 %) of the added sugar in our daily diet comes from table sugar, jams, chocolate and other sweets. Pastries, muffins and biscuits are laden with sugars, not to mention the additional fat. Did you know that a standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a piece of chocolate.
Another quarter, 25%, of the added sugar in our diet comes from soft drinks, fruit juice or other non-alcoholic drinks. Did you know that even 100% pure unsweetened fruit juice is high in sugars? That´s because of the natural glucose and fruit sugar (fructose) they contain.
Watch out for the sugar content in lower fat dairy products, because for the taste fat is replaced by sugar. Sugars are also found in surprisingly large amounts in many ready meals and savory foods, such as stir-in sauces, ketchup, salad cream and marinades.
If you want to become healthy, a low sugar diet plan is one of the most effective ways to get there. Both the WHO (World Health Organization) and The American Heart Association recommend limiting our daily added sugar intake to 6 teaspoons (25 grams) for women and 9 (38 grams) for men. The average American, however, consumes around 80 gram of added sugar a day!
Sugar drives inflammation and from skin to joints, the heart, and even the genitals, sugar affects virtually every aspect of our health. No doubt, this over-consumption of sugar is fueling the obesity and chronic disease epidemics, including type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
