I always tell my clients that one of the simplest changes to make in a nutrition plan to increase your potential to lose body fat is to decrease the amount of sugar you have in your daily intake. Some of the ways to do this are:
– stay away from low fat options at the grocery store such as low fat peanut butter, low fat salad dressing etc. Threse low fat options increase the amount of sugar and/or carbohydrates (which break down into sugar) to make them taste better or give the same consistency.
– cut down on the servings of fruit and honey to 1 a day. They may be a healthy alternatives to a spoonful of sugar but it still is sugar. (example one banana has a total of 27 grams of carbohydrates 14 of which is sugar)
– add stevia to your coffee or tea and cut out soda.
-Look for the “hidden” sugars in food. These include: corn syrup, brown sugar, corn sweetener, fruit juice concentrates, high-fructose corn syrup, fructose, sucrose, dextrose, glucose,lactose,maltose and anything with a variations these.
