Non-Concentrated Sweets Diet – Facts You Should Know

non-concentrated sweets dietAs the name implies, the non-concentrated sweets diet is one that eliminates concentrated sweets from your diet. This includes foods that have certain ingredients including corn syrup, fructose, maltose, dextrose, sorbitol, sugar, brown sugar, honey, or molasses. The non-concentrated sweets diet is one that some people consider highly restrictive and will take some getting used to. However, it may very well save your life or, at the very least, prevent irrevocable damage to your kidneys and other major organs.


Dietary Restrictions on Non-Concentrated Sweets Diet

The restrictions are quite simple on the non-concentrated sweets diet. This makes it easier on the dieter to remember any food restrictions. You can’t have anything with sugar in it. No sugar-sweetened drinks, snacks, fruits, fruit juices, jams, syrups, pastries, pieces, candies, cakes, or cookie are allowed on this diet.

Important Dietary Details About Eliminating Sugar from Your Diet

While the restrictions of the non-concentrated sweets diet are simple in philosophy, many people rebel at the idea of even these simple to understand restrictions. Rather than focusing your energy on the foods you can no longer eat on this diet, it’s best to explore the many options for foods that you can enjoy on this diet. For every one food item taken off the menu with the non-concentrated sweets diet, there is at least one sugar-free replacement available –if not more.

It’s important to note that because something is labeled as low sugar, or even sugar free, doesn’t mean that there are no carbs in the food. In other words, even foods that are allowed because they are sugar free may be able to raise your blood glucose levels. You must still practice some degree of moderation with certain foods on the non-concentrated sugar diet.

Other Information Regarding the Non-Concentrated Sweets Diet

In addition to eliminating all foods containing sugar and sugary derivatives you should also reduce other ingredients that may have a negative impact on your glucose, blood pressure, and overall good health. In other words, you should skip fried foods, eliminate fat from milk (use one percent fat milk at most), choose lean meats and avoid foods that are high in fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
The goal of any diet, not specifically the non-concentrated sweets diet is to create healthy, balanced eating habits that become second nature rather than seeming like sacrifices. Additionally, on this diet, you should never go more than five hours between a meal and you should eat at least four meals each day.

Benefits of a Non-Concentrated Sweets Diet

Perhaps the biggest benefit of this particular diet is that it doesn’t expressly forbid carbohydrates such as bread, dinner rolls, cereal, pasta, and potatoes like so many other diets do. You can even have foods that are restricted on many other diets such as pancakes, French toast, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, and more as long as they are made without sugar. As a result, you don’t feel as deprived as you would on other diets.

Before you chalk this diet up as far too restrictive, consider the benefits, the privileges, and the results you can expect in your blood glucose levels by eliminating the biggest offenders and keeping a close eye on suspect foods.
