Sugar is Bad, Stevia is Good
Multiple studies have shown the there are many reasons you should avoid added sugars. Sugar has been shown to provide fuel for cancer cells, promotes weight gain, impairs the function of white blood cells, and induces oxidative stress. Below, we have listed a few things you can do right now to make sure that these sugar side effects don’t affect you.
- Ditch the Processed Food: The first thing you can do to eliminate a large amount of excess sugar in your diet is to limit the amount of processed food that you consume or completely cut processed food from your diet. Almost every single food item you consume that comes from a box, can, or bag has added sugars and, in some cases, there can be multiple types of processed sugars in a single package. Of all the tips that we list in this blog series, cutting back on processed foods is the most effective way to reduce the amount of added sugars in your diet.
- Avoid Flavored Yogurts: Even though yogurt is often touted as a health food, far too often these “healthy” yogurts contain a ton of added sugars, sometimes as much as a candy bar. If you can’t go without your yogurt, we suggest that you only buy plain yogurt and add ingredients such as fresh fruit, granola, honey, or liquid stevia to sweeten and flavor the yogurt. Not only will the yogurt be much more healthy for you, you’ll be able to control and tweak the flavor to your taste.
