How to Reduce Your Family's Sugar Intake: 5 Steps to a Healthier Diet!

Health problems such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes are on the rise, even among kids. A possible culprit is our increased intake of sugar, leading to chronic inflammation and people being overweight. Here are some ways I've reduced sugar intake for my family: 

  • Avoid sugared drinks; plain water is best! 
  • Reduce consumption of processed foods. (Learn more about processed foods from Dr. Josephine Dlugopolski-Gach.)
  • Look at the ingredient lists before buying, and identify sugar (mostly ending with "-ose"). 
  • Substitute fruits for cakes and other desserts that are artificially sweetened. 
  • Limiting sugar (for women) to no more than 6 teaspoons or 24 grams per day. 

Sugar is addictive, so start today to reduce your intake!
