We all feel that we are not having enough sugar, barring the last week of the year, because heck, we were celebrating. But ask yourself in all genuinity, is that actually true? There is added sugar in your everyday packaged and processed foods, which goes uncounted. Moreover, cutting down on it does not require you to deprive yourself or go to extreme diets.
However, what you eat and drink in the form of processed foods and packaged foods has sugar that is highly processed and is devoid of dietary fiber. There is good evidence that this fructose actually leads to addiction, which is harmful in the long run.
Coming to sugar, you may argue that even fruits have fructose (which is a form of sugar), but your body can process fructose that is consumed as part of a whole fruit. This is because along with natural sugar, your body is also getting fiber, which slows down the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream.
Also, this by no standards mean you are eliminating sugar from your body, instead you are now getting it from healthy sources. If you can stick to this plan, cravings will fade sooner than you will ever know… And whenever you decide to add back some amount of sugar, do it mindfully so it does not sabotage your weight loss goals.
