How to Beat Your Sugar Addiction

Cake, chocolate and fizzy drinks… there is no shortage of sugary treats to tempt you when hunger strikes! And if you have a sweet tooth, they are your go-to foods.

But how can you beat that sugar addiction when temptation is everywhere?

Learning about the foods you eat and how they affect your body should be step 1 to recover from sugar addiction. It’s wise to figure out how to make sense of the labels, look for the part stating “Carbohydrates (of which sugars)”. Alcohol, for example, is an often overlooked source of sugar – yet it makes up on average 11% of our daily sugar intake. When you are having some drinks with friends, try switching every other drink for water. Plus try using low-sugar mixers in your vodka or gin, such as soda water.
 
Even if you manage to steer clear of the obvious villains, your diet may still be in the danger zone. Fruit juice and breakfast cereal have hidden sources of sugar. Going over the recommended daily sugar limit, means you are still at risk of tooth decay and weight gain. This can lead you to other, more serious, illnesses. If you want to take control of what you eat, you need to apply some serious sugar-busting techniques.
 
Beating your sugar addiction isn’t about resistance, as it is often futile to solely rely on willpower. It’s about changing your habits for long-term change. The infographic below by Budget Direct Life Insurance is packed with simple ideas to try.
 
Bring your daily sugar intake down! You will be amazed by how much better you feel — and how quickly.
