Sugar is one of the hardest things for anyone to give up! And it is also something most of us get addicted to very easily. If you’ve been having trouble letting go of sugar, we have some tips to get you started!

1. Clear Your Pantry Or Fridge Of Sugary Foods

First step in kicking a sugar habit is to get rid of all that sugar sitting around your home! Yes, we’re talking about the ice-cream in the freezer, those sugary cold drinks stalked up in your fridge, that chocolate spread and all those biscuit and cookie jars! Out of sight is out of mind!

2. Cut Out Refined Sugar

Apart from hiding all that dessert out of your reach, you need to get rid of those spoonfuls of sugar you add to your tea or coffee everyday! Instead, try organic honey, eucalyptus honey or demerara sugar for a change - healthier options which taste just as good, if not better!

3. Stock Up On The Kinds Of Sugar You CAN Eat!

You can always substitute processed sugar for the natural kind. Fruits are your best bet here. They contain fructose which is a natural form of sugar and they’re healthier and easier for your body to break down.

4. Eat At Regular Intervals

Waiting for longer than your body can handle between meals or reaching a point of starvation before eating will lead to stronger sugar cravings! Instead of binging on sweets, keep a small healthy snack with you in your bag and try eating at regular intervals to avoid a sugar craving!

5. Walk It Out!

Feel like eating that piece of cake you know is lying somewhere in the house? Take a little walk around your house or colony park or wherever you like! The exercise will take your mind off that sugar craving.

6. Go Cold Turkey

Now that your body is used to a reduced amount of sugar, try giving it up altogether for a week. While it is easy for some people to eat sugar in moderation without having to give it up completely, it is quite a difficult task for most people! If you can’t stop at one spoon, then we suggest you go off it completely for the first week. By the end of the week, you will be surprised at how your body stops craving sweets as much as it used to earlier.
