You like too much sugar right? Don’t worry a lot people do but they hide it or probably find tips to help them cut it down. Hiding it is bad but cutting it down will help you do your health more good. Sugar is sweet but life is sweeter so follow the tips below to cut your intake down.
These tips can help you cut down:
Instead of sugary fizzy drinks and juice drinks, go for water or unsweetened fruit juice (remember to dilute these for children to further reduce the sugar).
If you like fizzy drinks, try diluting fruit juice with sparkling water.
Swap cakes or biscuits for a currant bun, scone or some malt loaf with low-fat spread.
If you take sugar in hot drinks or add sugar to your breakfast cereal, gradually reduce the amount until you can cut it out altogether.
Rather than spreading jam, syrup, treacle or honey on your toast, try a low-fat spread, sliced banana or low-fat cream cheese instead.
Check the labels to help you pick the foods with less added sugar, or go for the low-sugar version.
Try halving the sugar you use in your recipes – it works for most things except jam, meringues and ice cream.
Choose tins of fruit in juice rather than syrup.
Choose wholegrain breakfast cereals, but not those coated with sugar or honey.
