It’s great to take control over your eating and eliminating as much of the added sugars that are contained in our everyday foods. Sugars tend to make us eat more and almost crave more of those types of foods.
You can see in the video below, which is by a registered dietitian, some suggestions for healthy ways to lower the amount of simple sugars you have in your diet.
I thought the video provided excellent suggestions on how to read labels to achieve a low sugar diet. It also talks about ways to eliminate refined sugars by reducing the amount of pre-packaged foods that you eat such as sugary cookies and snacks.
Learning about a low sugar diet is important as you try to reduce your intake of carbohydrate on a diabetic diet.
