Tips to reduce your sugar consumption

Sugar added to foods makes them taste sweeter, but a healthy diet can sour from too much usage of it.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests few tips on how you can limit added sugar:
  • Cut back on candy, baked goodies, desserts and other sweet treats.
  • Hold on to fresh and healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains and lean forms of protein.
  • Drink water instead of sweetened drinks.
  • Avoid foods that are processed.
  • Go for lower-sugar recipes when baking.
