Ten Top Tips For Cutting Sugar From Your Diet

With The NHS debating whether to impose a tax, or even ban, sugary snacks sold in hospitals, this may provide the perfect incentive to cut the sugar from your diet as one of your New Year’s Resolutions.

Some of the ways too much sugar can impact your body include liver damage, weight gain, obesity, elevated blood sugar, high blood pressure, heart or kidney disease, tooth decay and diabetes, among many others.

Nutritional expert and founder of Nosh Detox, the UK’s first ever home detoxification and weight loss delivery service, Geeta Sidhu-Robb, shared her expertise on how to actively cut sugar out of the diet this New Year with a handy list of ‘top 10 tips’.

·         Move to denser sugars which are mixed with fibre so that they take longer to break down in your body – that way you won’t crash and burn with a sugar rush.

·         Eat food in its most natural state – there is less likelihood that it has been processed with added sugars.

·         Opt for cold-press or fresh juices as opposed to pasteurized – the heat used to eliminate harmful bacteria in the pasteurization process also removes many good bacterias.

·         Eat more often – when you are satiated you don’t crave sugar, and it becomes harder to eat.

·         Try a juice fast with blended juices – you cannot do a juice fast and crave anything sweet straight after, cravings will be significantly curbed.

·         Try to incorporate good protein and good fats into every meal – it keeps you full for longer and leaves you feeling satisfied. It also controls your blood glucose levels.

·         Take a good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, including omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D3. Nutrient deficiencies make cravings worse and the fewer nutrient deficiencies, the fewer cravings. Certain nutrients also seem to improve blood sugar control including chromium, vitamin B3 and magnesium.

·         Sleep and rest more – when we are tired we turn to sweets instinctively to give us fake energy.

·         Exercise regularly – this will help to curb your cravings.

·         Stay away from artificial sweeteners – they do little to alter your desire for sweets and they can be just as bad for you as sugar.
