If you have recognised that you are eating too much, here are my top 3 tips to cutting those levels down.
1. Dates: Keep a jar of medjool dates handy. They are deliciously sweet, natural, and packed full of fibre. I call them ‘natures caramel’
2. Make it a goal to ‘cut it in half’: I find the cold turkey approach of ‘quitting sugar’ much less effective than gradually weaning your taste buds off sugar. Instead, if you have 1 teaspoon of sugar in your tea of coffee, aim to only have 1/2 teaspoon. Do this for 1 week then reduce by half again.
3. Don’t flatter yourself: I often hear at about 3pm people say “I need some sugar, I’ve got no energy”. Stop. You don’t NEED sugar, you are tired and you WANT sugar. There is a big difference and telling ourselves that we NEED it doesn’t do our subconscious mind any favours.
