When you cut back on sugar, you’ll quickly start to feel more energized and focused, so it’s worth the effort. Get through the initial days with this guide.
DON’T go cold turkey. When you cut out all sugar at once, it can backfire and can make you end up binge eating.
DO eat natural forms of sugar each day. Aim for one or two cups of fruit (berries, apples, oranges, or grapefruit).
DON’T skip sleep. When you don’t get at least seven hours of shut-eye this could affect your sugar cravings according to several studies.
DO stay hydrated. Most of the time, when you’re craving for some sweets, you might actually be just thirsty not hungry.
DO double up on veggie intake. Vegetables are high in fiber which helps fill you up and stabilizes your blood sugar. Maintain that satisfied feeling by eating protein (like chicken, fish, or Greek yogurt) at every meal.
