Health Tip

  • Although it sounds drastic, it is easier to go ‘cold turkey’ from the start, rather than reducing…you will only keep craving.
  • Avoid ALL added sugar. Eg to breakfast cereal, tea and coffee
  • Avoid ALL obvious sugar. Eg jam (even ‘natural’ jam), biscuits, cakes, chocolate
  • Eat protein with every meal to keep blood sugars steady, and reduce craving.
  • Avoid dried fruit and grapes. Other fruit OK….just stick to 2-3 pieces daily.
  • Tell friends, family and work colleagues that you are going ‘sugar free’ for some time so that you don’t feel guilty when you DON’T eat that birthday cake.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners. They only keep you in the loop of craving something sweet.
