I hear endless complaints from people struggling to lose weight who insist they don’t have a sweet tooth and don’t eat sugar.
Eating sugar doesn’t necessarily mean ladling teaspoons of sugar into your tea or coffee. Sugar is hidden in SO many things.
Fat free Milk for example… approximately 12g of sugar
If you were to cut out one single thing from your diet, sugar should be it.
Of course it is almost impossible to cut it out totally if you expect to live a normal life, but don’t be so quick to say “I don’t eat sugar”. Most foods turn into a form of sugar once they hit your blood stream anyway, which your body does in fact need.
In summation, CHECK YOUR LABELS!!! If there is added sugar in whatever you are buying, ditch it! And pay attention to how much sugar there is under carbohydrates.
Sugar masquerades under a variety of guises; here are some words to watch out for on your labels:
Sucrose, Maltose, Dextrose, Fructose, Glucose, Galactose, Lactose, High fructose corn syrup, Glucose solids, Cane juice, Dehydrated cane juice, Cane juice solids, Cane juice crystals, Dextrin, Maltodextrin, Dextran, Barley malt, Beet sugar, Corn syrup, Corn syrup solids, Caramel, Buttered syrup, Carob syrup, Brown sugar, Date sugar, Malt syrup, Diatase, Diatastic malt, Fruit juice, Fruit juice concentrate, Dehydrated fruit juice, Fruit juice crystals, Golden syrup, Turbinado, Sorghum syrup, Refiner’s syrup, Ethyl maltol, Maple syrup, Yellow sugar.
Also, Agave IS sugar, don’t be fooled.
When manufacturers use the term “no added sugars” that usually means because there are enough existing sugars.
Think smart when you do your next grocery shop and don’t be put off by spending a few extra seconds on identifying the hidden sugars.
