Excess Sugar is Not Your Friend
While natural sugars are essential to a healthy, balanced diet, excess sugars have quite the opposite effect. Consuming large amounts of refined sugar has been linked to a plethora of health issues and can have negative impacts that stick around for a lot longer than they should. To help reduce the amount of sugar that our readers consume, below we have listed a few simple steps you can take right now to eliminate as much excess sugar from your diet as possible.
- Ditch the Soda: Most people are already aware of the fact that soda contains an insane amount of sugar, however, most people don’t realize just how much sugar they are consuming every time they guzzle down a soft drink. The average soda contains 39 grams of added sugar per 12 fluid ounces. While this may not seem like a ton of sugar at first, consider the fact that very few people drink only 12 ounces of soda at a time and, on average, people consume more than one soda per day if they are regular soda drinkers. Multiple sodas a day result in hundreds of grams of sugar being dumped into your body that it doesn’t need. These sugars then stick around, forming fat deposits, negatively affecting insulin, and generally making a nuisance of themselves. By cutting soda out of your diet this spring, you will greatly reduce the amount of sugar that you consume. While it may seem like giving up soda is not possible, trust us. After a week or so of not consuming soda, you will be amazed at how little your body actually craves it.
- Limit Adding Sugar: Another great step you can take in reducing the amount of excess sugar that you consume in a day is to limit the amount of sugar that you add to things on a daily basis. While many people consider themselves health-conscious, they will not hesitate to dump a heaping spoonful of sugar in their morning coffee. While sugar does make coffee more enjoyable, there are better options than adding refined sugar. Stevia extracts, like those supplied by SoPure Stevia, are able to sweeten coffee as well as sugar without the negative impacts. This one small change in your morning routine can result in a major reduction in the amount of sugar that you consume in a day without requiring a major shift in your established routines.
