Do you know what a life hack is? A life hack is simple change that you can do to make your life easier. But have you heard of a sugar life hack? This post is going to tell you how 5 simple sugar life hacks that will help you change your life for the better!
1. Go Natural
Going natural is a awesome way to lower your sugar intake for everyday meals. Usually non-natural foods have more sugar that natural foods. And if it is the other way around, then you still have to remember that the sugar in a natural food has natural sugar.
2. Know Your Portions
Knowing your portion size is something that everyone should know. A lot of times companies would tell you how much sugar in one serving of a certain food. But what people often forget is how many servings you eat. For example, one gummy bear has 1.3 grams of sugar. But you need to remember, your probably not going to eat only one gummy bear. You are probably going to eat at least 10 – 15 gummy bears. That’s 10-20 grams of sugar right there.
3. Compare Foods
Comparing foods is often a very helpful thing to do. I know this because I researched applesauce for a post. Than I found out that one brand of applesauce had more sugar than another. This shows that comparing foods is often a lifesaver when it comes eating less sugar.
4. Lower It Gradually
Lowering your sugar gradually is the way to go! If you gradually lower sugar than it more likely to be able to eat less sugar without craving it too much. For example if you usually have dessert two times a day after lunch and dinner, try only having one serving of dessert. Most people try to stop eating sugar at all. But that’s not the right way to go. So remember lower it gradually!
5. Clean Out Your Pantry
Do you have tempting foods in your pantry? If you do than you probably have had the temptation to eat some really sugary foods. For example, if you ate a small pack of Oreo’s you would be eating 13g of sugar. That’s more than HALF of how much sugar you should eat in one day. Cleaning your pantry out and disposing of all of sugary foods in your pantry would help you stop the craving of sugar.
I hope you all ENJOY!
