5 Ways to Reduce your Sugar Intake and Shed Weight

1. Trade dessert for fresh fruits; go for freshly squeezed fruit juices in moderate quantities. You can split your dessert ration in two and reduce your calorie intake while enjoying a pleasant meal.

2. Choose healthy portions of watermelon, pineapples, citrus fruits like tangerines and oranges, green and red apples, sweet grapes, mangoes, berries, bananas, kiwis, passion fruits, and even coconuts instead of processed foods like pastries, ice-cream, sugar-laden yoghurts, and parfaits, calorie-dense chocolate and other attractive yet fattening forms of dessert.

3. Make your baked goods less fattening by adding less brown or white sugar, sweeten your dough with more healthy options like blended cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and banana extract, etc.  

4. Make your drinking water interesting. Jazz it up with a slice of lemon, cucumber, and even mint leaves. Do away with carbonated drinks known as soda drinks, cut down on alcoholic drinks, and choose to add fewer quantities of artificial sweeteners to your tea and coffee daily.

5. Water beats sugar-free drinks hands down. Choose water!!!
