How to be free from sugar, sugar highs, and more

What is sugar? 

It’s sugar that’s in your food, drink, and even on your skin. 

If you’re wondering what to eat when you’re feeling hungover, you’re not alone. 

There’s no denying that sugar is a part of your everyday diet, and if you’re a sugar junkie you’re not surprised. 

What you need to know about the topic: You’re likely not aware that you have the ability to detox from sugar and all the chemicals in it. 

The same can be said for other addictive chemicals like caffeine, nicotine, and opiates. 

Most of us, including myself, don’t feel well when we drink large amounts of soda or a cup of coffee. 

It can be frustrating to find yourself in a situation where you feel so sugar y. 

While it can be a frustrating time, it’s also a great time to get rid of all the junk in your life. 

Your body has to clean up all of the excess sugar and other chemicals in your body. 

These chemicals can lead to a host of diseases and can even lead to insulin resistance, Type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. 

So what are some tips for avoiding all of this sugar?

Here are some things you can do to make sure you don’t have a sugar spike in your day.1.

Eat less sugarThe first thing to do is get rid of all the sugar in your diet. 

You don’t need to limit yourself to only consuming 3-4 tablespoons of sugar per day. 

Instead, consume about 1-2 teaspoons of sugar in each serving of your favorite foods. 

This can be something as simple as adding in a small serving of fruits and veggies to your diet to boost your intake of nutrients like fiber and protein. 

I prefer adding in these little bites of fruit and veggies in my daily diet, but there are other ways you can make sure your diet isn’t too full of sugar. 

Try incorporating them in a protein shake, yogurt, or a low-calorie breakfast.

Reduce your intake of processed sugarsIt’s no secret that refined sugars and artificial sweeteners have become the new gold standard in our lifestyle and are increasingly being added to our food. 

Research shows that those who are low-caloric are more likely to be overweight, and they have higher rates of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other chronic diseases. 

But when it comes to getting rid of the sugar and sugar-heavy foods in your diet, there’s one way to go about it.3.

Avoid artificial sweetener  Many foods contain added sugars, and that’s why they’re used in so many processed foods and drinks. 

One common sugar found in a lot of these products is sucrose. 

Sucrose is an artificial sweetening compound that is used in processed processes like sweetened yogurts and candies. 

That means that, when you eat them, they are actually added to your food.

If you’re eating a sugar-laden meal, sucrose can trigger your body to process sugar and produce insulin. 

 To prevent this from happening, eat more natural, nutrient-dense foods like fruits and vegetables, lean meats, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes.

Avoid all processed sugars In general, avoiding sugar in processed foods is the easiest way to avoid it.

In fact, if you do the math, it is almost entirely the same for any process. 

For example, a lunch of soda contains roughly 1 tablespoon of sugar, a fizzy drink contains roughly 3 tablespoons, and a sweetened cereal contains around 3 tablespoons. 

When you add these sugars into your food without the intention of adding them, you’re essentially creating more sugar in your body than you already have. 

5.

Eat fewer caloriesA calorie is a unit of energy that you can consume in a single unit of time. 

To consume more calories than you need, your body has two main strategies to combat excess sugar.

One is to increase the amount of fat it burns. 

A saturated fat is a fat that is higher in calories than monounsaturated fat, which is a type of fat that also contains a lot of calories. 

In order to keep your waistline small, fat eating has to be considered a healthy thing. 

Studies have shown that consuming high amounts of salt and fats like olive oil and citrus fruits can help your body burn more fat.
