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.
