Hello, I’m Rick Taylar, and this is Weight Loss Mindset!

Now is the time to curb your over-consumption of sugar.

Don’t leave it too late. Start weaning yourself off it today.

There’s no nutritional value in eating lots of sugar. But, there is sickness and death.

It’s time you started healing yourself and dropping excess weight. Start with sugar.

Sugar has been making people fatter and sicker for decades now. We know it creates type 2 Diabetes, a disease responsible for creating many other destructive conditions.

You don’t need it. That’s a fact. But, you’re addicted to it, another fact.

Here are five quick, simple tips to help you deal with your sugar habit.

1 - Forget Going Cold Turkey. Go slow

Slowly lessening the amount of sugar you eat will ensure you don’t suffer the side effects of changing things too drastically.

2 - Change one habit at a time and stick with it.

Here’s an example. Let’s say you’re hooked on sweetened coffee. You could reduce the amount of sugar each week by adding one teaspoon less sugar to your coffee. Or if that’s too sudden, try reducing half a teaspoon each week.

3 - Try to eat more protein

Eating more protein in your meals helps you feel fuller for longer. Protein also helps you better absorb any starches and carbohydrates you eat with your meal.

4 - Eat more fresh, whole fruit

Sugar in the form of fruits, grains, and veggies has been a natural part of our food supply since the beginning of time.

5 - Understand what you’re eating before you eat it

Food manufacturers are masters of deception. Because of the bad reputation that food groups like sugar and fat have. They’ve gotten creative at hiding the sugar in their products. They hide it by sneakily changing the name to things like fructose or cane juice.

Try to consider the timing of when you eat sugar

If you can’t stop eating sugar, you can try to eat it at better times. Sugar is best eaten directly before or after long workouts. If you’re a marathon runner or participate in all-day sporting events, eating sugar-filled snacks inside your active periods will ensure that your body will burn all the calories you’re giving it.

Okay, so now you have some ways to help you kick your sugar habit. Small manageable changes and knowing what to eat and when will make all the difference when it comes to detoxing from sugar.

Try writing your experiences in a journal. You can write about what worked for you and what didn’t. Were there any successful strategies that you used when you kicked your sugar habit?

Writing in this way will strengthen your resolve and help you to finally stop eating excess sugar so you can lose weight and stay healthy.
