Sugar & Weight loss! How to drop FAT.

November 3, 2017

How I feel about… 





What’s the one thing you can start doing NOW to start losing weight??


#1. Stop eating SUGAR

More specifically, processed Sugar. 



"The one culprit that often sabotages diet plans." 





Although you do not need to eliminate sugar completely to lose weight, it is necessary to cut down on its consumption.


Consider this:


A typical can of soda contains around 40-50 grams of sugar, and drinking two cans per day could increase your daily caloric intake by 300-400. What's worst about these calories is that they're basically empty. By this I mean that sugar has been shown to have very little effect on satiety, or how full you feel from the calories you eat. Taking in lots of extra calories but not getting full? You'd better believe that's a recipe for weight gain.



The simplest way to kickstart your journey to health, wellness, and weight-loss is to decrease your daily sugar intake. 

Research has associated high sugar intake with increased rates of obesity, heart disease, and cancer. Many fitness and research professionals suggest reducing or eliminating sugar intake to optimise health and body composition. (source)

We constantly crave sugar, making it difficult to enjoy eating a meal without it. 


Now, you don’t need a meal plan or a personal trainer to eliminate processed sugar from your diet. 

Here are 3 things you can start doing now to start eliminating SUGAR from your diet



#1. ‘Clean Up’ your diet one meal at a time. 

Make a conscious effort to reduce the amount of sugar per meal. Example, use half the amount of sugar or condensed milk in your coffee & tea. 

#2. Stop drinking Sodas and ease up on the Fruit Juices. 


#3. Start reading labels!

Or at least consider ingredients before you eat. You’ll be surprised at the amount of sugars in salad dressing & Yogurts! 

Try eating as close to nature as possible, skip on the cheese puffs, and aloo pies, go instead for nuts, green leafy veggies and fish/ meat.
