Breaking Sugar Addiction:
There are negative long-term health consequences of high sugar intake (metabolic disorder, GI-dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory conditions, etc.)
It is extremely difficult to lose fat while having a diet that is high in sugar intake (low in nutritional value)
To become a sugar savvy shopper, keep a watchful eye! We suggest consuming less than 6 grams of sugar per serving, which can be tricky!
Keep a watchful eye even with "healthy" foods such as: Odwalla juice, Subway chicken teriyaki, Clif bar (all very high in sugar).
Sugar is one of the first items that you look for on a food label; however, sugar has 50 different word variations on packages!
Aim for less than 6 grams of sugar per serving in all packaged food items. Healthier options to the foods listed above (different juice-- or the real thing, different Subway sandwich and different protein bar).
Another option is Sweet Leaf stevia and which is a more natural form of alternative sugar. Clients are getting the best results because we always recommend a low sugar diet with our meal plans. It is necessary to break the sugar addiction to maintain fat loss-- in the long run!
