Foods To Avoid If You Want to Stop Eating Too Much Sugar

Sticking to a healthy meal plan and lifestyle is key if we want to control these sugar cravings. Recognize how much sugar you are actually eating. Read the food labels, look for hidden sugars and stick to more nutritious whole foods. Then detach yourself off of sugary foods by consuming less of the breads, crackers, chips, and even energy bars. Consuming less sweet and processed foods is the goal, but do not deprive yourself entirely.

Breakfast:

Focus on foods that are high in quality protein as well as healthy fats as these will keep you fuller longer, suppress cravings but give you energy. Some recommendations are:

  • Eating whole scrambled eggs cooked in coconut oil, which provide both that necessary healthy protein and fat.
  • A veggie-filled omelet with shredded cheese
  • A yogurt parfait, use plain unsweetened yogurt and a low-sugar and high protein granola. Then, sprinkle in some nuts, seeds, and berries.

Lunch: 

Keep up with the protein, fiber, and healthy fats combo. “The best way to detox from sugar is to make sure is to make sure that you are consuming protein and healthy fats. Protein will keep you feeling fuller longer and can also help reduce cravings while healthy fats like coconut oil and avocado will help stabilize your blood sugar and give you energy you need to power through your day. 

  • Prepare a colorful salad that’s topped with beans, quinoa, or lentils and drizzled with olive oil. It has the nutrients your body needs and will give you sustained energy all afternoon long.

Your lunch break is also a good time to check in with your hydration levels. Water is important to the body’s metabolic processes and also helps keep you feeling energized and alert. Plus, it might prevent you from breaking your sugar detox to scarf down a donut.

Dinner: 

It’s, again, all about a vegetable-based meal that includes protein and healthy fats. 

  • Include whole-grains such as brown rice and quinoa, but limit (don’t restrict) the bread intake and other refined starches.
  • Try a roasted vegetable medley with a serving of wild salmon, avocado, and brown rice. It’s still warm and filling on cold fall and winter days, but without the extra calories and unhealthy fat that comes with other winter-favorite meals, like cream-based soups and starchy pasta dishes. 

Start with a base of cruciferous vegetables like spinach and Brussels sprouts before adding carrots, sweet potato, broccoli, or radishes—all of which can be roasted in olive oil. Top off with a freshly prepared salmon filet and some avocado. 

Hidden Sugars to Avoid:

When it comes to snacks, whether you eat them before or after dinner, be sure to avoid hidden sugars. There are hidden sugars in many of our packaged convenience foods. And often many of these don’t necessarily taste particularly sweet. For example, take some wheat bread, for instance, they may contain barley malt and other ‘sugar’ such as honey to balance the flavor, but don’t consider this dessert.

Also, drinking too much alcohol. It’s less satisfying than food but still adds a lot of calories to our day with its hidden sugars.

Aside from packaged and processed foods and alcohol, also avoid eating too much fruit. It can have negative effects on the body and encourage more sugar cravings. There is a place for a little fruit in everyone’s diet and isn’t something that should be completely cut out, but too much fruit can be very detrimental to your body. It’s packed with sugar, especially in juice form, and is just setting your body up for an insulin crash.

Be mindful when you pick up a green juice and check to see how much sugar it contains in the bottle. 

If you are going to eat fruit, aim for lower sugar fruits like berries, which are also packed with other nutrients.

As for what you should eat for a snack, vegetables with hummus, a small handful of raw nuts or seeds, or something similarly free of added sugars and preservatives.
