So, we are all aware of the fact that sugar is bad. Yet, some of us eat it from time to time. And some of us eat it every single day. It’s always coming back like a yo-yo, corrupting our minds. I don’t like sweet things very much, and that’s my happiness. But sometimes, when oreos are in our treats drawer I can’t help it. Especially in the morning (even though it’s the worst time to consume sugar).
What can happen if you eat so much sugar?
WEIGHT GAIN. Of course, sugar is bad for your diet and you know that very well.
LOW ENERGY. Because it gives you energy quick, and then low it down again (as quickly as possible) leaving you to crave for more.
HEALTH ISSUES. Such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease…
Food high in sugar: sweets, soda, ketchup, tomato/soy/barbecue sauce, coffees that you buy, alcohol, soup powder, cereal bars, dried fruit…
Tips on how to control it:
Go to bed earlier. People consume more food if they stay up late at night (because of boredom, or they are hungry again).
Wake up earlier. If you can manage to wake up even one hour earlier than usual, you can prepare yourself a healthy breakfast and exercise. This will help your energy to stay on high level, and you won’t crave so much sugar during the day.
Exercise. If you exercise, you feel more optimistic about healthy lifestyle.
Plan your meals. You won’t be confused and hungry if you plan and prepare on time!
Snacks. We love chia pudding, which is one of the best snacks ever! So delicious, and it gives you so much energy. The recipe is pretty easy: you mix together one small cup of any kind of milk, one tsp chia seeds, honey, cinnamon, cacao… Actually, whatever you like! Then you shake it, store it in the fridge and snack on it tomorrow!
Drink more water. Fluids make you feel full for some time.
Don’t skip meals. Because in between, you’ll crave for sugar.
