  1. This is a great post. I’m constantly talking about the importance of limiting sugar and processed food.

  2. Jill says:

    SO MANY people I know struggle with over consuming sugar! I cannot wait to pass this on to them! So many amazing tips here.

  3. Chef Dennis says:

    It is funny how the more sugar we use, the more sugar we need. I do try to keep my intake at a minimum.

  4. I used to be scared of things with sugar as a number of my family members are diabetic, always checking the back of packets and it’s just something I’m used to doing now. I literally cringe when I see my friends inhaling things that contain so much processed sugar. But even as much as I’ve got to admit that as a student my food choices are limited and sometimes the foods you quoted as having sugar are a staple part of my diet.

    1. Most health professionals would prefer we have no sugar in our diet. But that is not always realistic for many of us. The best you can do is drink plenty of water, stay active and include healthy fruits and vegetables into your diet as much as possible.

  5. Thanks for giving me ideas as to how to reduce my sugar intake. I do not want to be a diabetic. My last blood test showed that I had a sugar spike- my first.

    1. Yes, it is important to watch much sugar we consume. Sugar can cause some serious health problems.

    I have been trying the last week to cut out as much sugar as possible. I’ve been getting headaches and I know it’s from the lack of sugar throughout the day, but I am persevering right now.

    1. Yes, headaches are one of the signs of sugar withdrawal. Eventually, they will stop and you will know you are getting closer to your goal.

    I actually need this article right now. It’s hard for me not to have desserts. The tips you have here are very practical and doable, I just have to start applying them.

    1. Thank you, Kristina. I am glad it could help in some way.

  8. I cut sugar a lot during a 21 day carb cycle and it made a huge difference. Easier said than done sometimes but solid post!

    1. Agreed. It is something I work on every day.

    Nice Post! Log of people
    Should read this post!

  10. I must confess that I have a large sweet tooth. I work to keep it in moderation and try not to add sugar to my cooking, unless I’m baking goodies. It’s amazing how much sugar is in processed foods – unbelievable! In our house, we try to eat as little processed food as we can to help with both sugar and sodium intake.

    1. Yes, giving up sugar can be a struggle. Try swapping your sugary snack with fruit whenever you can.

  11. There are always so many things to think about when it comes to sugar. From processed foods that you have to figure out where the sugar is because they hide it in strange sounding names ending in ose, to fruits or veggies that contain too many natural sugars inside of them and would prevent a full detox.

    1. This is true. Many people do not want to give up sugar completely. So making healthier choices whenever you can be beneficial.

  12. Sugar can really get the best of you and it’s also quite addicting. It’s good to do a detox or at least consume more food with natural sugars like fruits. I think these are great tips!

    1. You are so right. Making healthier choices whenever you can.

  13. Ysh Dee says:

    I am a certified sweet tooth and I find it really difficult to say no to sweet and sugary food. I make sure to drink water a lot, I believe it’s a great help!

    1. I admit it. I have a huge sweet tooth but I make efforts every day to keep it under control.

  14. Great Post! Another good tip would be swapping the simple empty carbs found in sugar for more nutritious filling wholegrains. You’ll feel energised, full and your body will thank you later! Although, cutting our sugar altogether isn’t always the best option either. Sugar alone although not the most nutritious food, won’t make you fat. Instead it is all the food which is connected to having a high sugar content such as doughnuts, pancakes, chocolate, sweets because not only do these contain sugar they also contain other nasty ingredients and unhealthy saturated fats. So as you have said, opting for other wholesome food options is a much healthier option.

    1. Definitely a great tip. Thanks, Danielle.

    Excess of anything is bad. I usually have a very little intake of sugar because I don’t have a sweet tooth and that leaves me a little lethargic. I have to remind myself to have a little bit of sugar once in a while. But it’s great to stick to natural foods and avoid processed foods at all cost 🙂

    I watched a great documentary on Netflix that talked about sugar consumption in the US. It was very revealing as well. We could all do with a lot less sugar.

    1. Yes, we all need to be careful not to over indulge.
