4 super easy way for you to eat less sugar

Americans eat lots of sugar collectively, they consume over 22 teaspoons of added sugar each day. That is about 6 teaspoons over has been recommended...until now. The World Health Organization has recently said that they ought to cut back our sugar consumption to 6 teaspoons a day, which translates to about five percent of our every day caloric intake, or about 100 calories total. Less than a can of  soda.

Even in case you don't have a sweet tooth, there's still lots of food items that harbor sugar and a quantity of them are things you would not guess, like ketchup tablespoon contains a teaspoon of sugar), jarred pasta sauce (ten grams of sugar per half-cup serving), and soy milk (6 grams of sugar per cup).

The reason for the decreased sugar allowance, according to WHO: "There is increasing concern that consumption of free sugars, in the type of sugar-sweetened drinks, may lead to both reduced intake of foods containing more nutritionally adequate calories and an increase in total caloric intake, leading to an unhealthy diet, weight gain, and increased risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs)."

But there's some sneaky ways to excise sugar from your every day eating schedule! Take a glance:
Swap sugar-sweets with fruit-sweets. In lieu of using jam or jelly which has lots of added sugar on your toast, use sliced strawberries or other fresh fruit. If you are having a dish of frozen yogurt or ice cream, top it with berries, bananas, or nuts in lieu of hot fudge.

Buy plain foods and sweeten them by yourself. Even simple things like flavored yogurt can contain lots of added sugar a typical container of strawberry yogurt has 26 grams of the sweet stuff. In lieu, buy plain versions of foods and add sweetener (or fruit) yourself.

Forgo sweet cocktails. average mojito usually clocks in at about 215 calories, with 23 grams of sugar plus, super-sweet drinks like it can lead to hypoglycemia and dizziness. In lieu of opting for drinks made with simple syrups and added sugars, use fresh-squeezed juices.

Limit sugar-laden treats to a few times a week. Getting rid of tasty treats altogether is not realistic and, in case you put a food on the "no" list, you are more likely to overeat when they are in front of you. Keep in mind that it is OK to have that ice cream, cupcake, or cookie. & in case you have designated times in mind for doing so, it is a lot simpler ( kind of fun) to look forward to them.
