Lose Weight – 5 Ways to Avoid Sugar
A single teaspoon of sugar contains 16 calories, which doesn’t seem like much. However, it is astonishing how quickly they add up.
When trying to lose weight, every calorie counts. One of the biggest things we must get past is the idea that “sugar” is only that thing we put in our coffee. Sugar is everywhere. And the craving for sugar is always lurking…
Here are 5 ways to avoid sugar and boost weight-loss efforts…
Understand the link between Sugar and Weight Gain
When we take into consideration that almost all diets come down to “calories consumed vs calories burned” it is not difficult to see how sugar can cause weight gain. Since added sugars cause an increase in calories in your food, it is a massive contributor to your daily calorie intake. Sugar also causes the pancreas to release more of the hormone called “insulin”, which helps the body process sugar to be used as energy. Unfortunately, whatever sugar is not used for energy immediately gets stored in the cells as FAT!
Get a grip on the Weight-Loss Formula
As a basic rule of thumb, burning 3,500 calories lets you burn about 0.5kg. This means that if you cut out 10 teaspoons of sugar (16 calories) you will be cutting 160 calories per day, which adds up to 1,120 calories in a week. This can mean consistently dropping half a kilogram every 3 weeks, by only cutting out 10 teaspoons of sugar a day! And of course, if you cut out more sugar per day, you can lose weight a bit quicker.
Know the Common Sources of Sugar
The first step in cutting out sugar from your diet is by cutting out or even just limiting the obvious sources of sugar. These include things like soft drinks, cookies, cake, ice cream, cake, and other desserts. As mentioned, you don’t have to completely remove these from your diet, but just reduce the number of times per week you eat them, and also eat a smaller portion than usual.
Beware of Sneaky Sources of Sugar
In most cases, these are foods that don’t taste sweet, so you wouldn’t really expect them to contain sugar. To avoid added sugar from such foods, start reading the labels of the products you buy. Be on the lookout for things like salad dressing, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and mayonnaise as these may often contain high amounts of sugar.
Read the “nutritional facts” part of the label to make sure that you are getting the one with the lowest sugar content.
Stop Sugar Cravings with Yoxa Glucose Support
Sugar cravings are caused by fluctuating blood sugar levels – which are ironically caused by eating too much sugar.
The fact of the matter is that it is difficult to avoid sugar in your day-to-day life. That is why you need all the help you can get.
The way Yoxa Glucose Support helps to tackle the root cause of sugar cravings is by stabilizing your blood sugar levels. The Yoxa Glucose Support slow-releases the sugar from the food you eat into your bloodstream. This means that all the sugar is not dumped into your system at once, but gradually released so that you have constant boosted energy levels over a longer period of time. This decreases the rise in sugar levels after a meal, and also means that the sugar does not come crashing down a little while later – which means less sugar cravings.
