How to reduce sugar intake and reduce sweet cravings)

How to reduce sugar intake

Read labels.   Many products contain “hidden”sugar

•  Sugars can be identified as: sugar, white sugar, brown sugar, cane sugar, confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, crystallized fructose, dextrin, honey, invert sugar, maple syrup, raw sugar, beet sugar, cane sugar, corn sweeteners, evaporated cane juice, glucose-fructose, granulated fructose, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), fructose, malt, molasses, and turbinado sugar

•  Avoid products having sugar as any of the first 3 ingredients

In coffee / hot chocolate, substitute sugar with cinnamon or a cinnamon stick, or vanilla essence or bean

In baking recipes

•  Reducing sugar by one-third won't usually make much difference to taste

•  Substitute 1/3 sugar with unsweetened apple sauce

•  Use vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves toadd sweetness to a recipe

Use fruit purees instead of syrup

Minimize / Eliminate sweetened soda, tea and other soft drinks.    instead prefer water with a splash of lemon or lime juice

Buy plain, unsweetened yogurt and add your own sweeteners.   E.g. banana or other fruit, vanilla, cinnamon, a little honey

Avoid processed fruit juice of all types.    if you make your own, limit yourself to 4oz/day

Don't overdo the high-sugar content fruits:
