Your pocket guide to sugar free eating
A no-sugar diet is not as simple as cutting out all cakes and sweets. You may think that you don’t eat a lot of sugar, but what most of us don’t realise is the huge amount of hidden sugar we are eating in processed foods.
Zero Sugar explains why processed sugar, especially fructose, is so addictive and so bad for us, and explains how to recognise and avoid hidden sugar in foods.
While dietary recommendations for consumption of added sugar are a maximum of 6 teaspoons a day for women and 9 teaspoons a day for men, the average person actually consumes approximately 40 teaspoons per day!
The good news is that going ‘zero sugar’ does not mean going hungry. By switching from foods high in sugar to a diet based on nutritious whole foods and healthy fats, you will actually feel fuller for longer and food cravings will disappear.
Break your addiction to sugar with the help of Zero Sugar, the pocket guide you can take with you when shopping and eating out.
