Eat Less Sugar and Increase Your Energy Using These 3 Tips

Eat Less Sugar and Increase Your Energy Using These 3 Tips

Sugar is a simple carb that can be detrimental to both your physical and mental health (think increased belly fat, hormonal imbalances, bad skin, fatigue, diabetes). Sugar may give you that quick energy hit you need, however it leaves you crashing shortly after. Increase your energy and improve your health using these 5 tips to eliminate added sugar from your diet.


Skip the holiday lattes and put down the sugar-sweetened beverages. Keep your morning coffee to an Americano or cappuccino, and skip the added sugar altogether. If your local coffee shop uses house-made nut mylk then go for that instead. House-made mylks contain less sugar and are often healthier than their boxed counterparts. If you want to try something totally sugar-free, go for a green or black tea. 


The average cereal contains 24g of sugar per bowl (that’s almost your entire daily intake!). Yoghurts are also often flavoured with sugar and many commercial juices have sugar added to them too. Make sure you’re reading the labels of the food items you buy from the supermarket. Choose plain oatmeal instead of cereal, and add a little raw organic honey or fresh fruit for extra sweetness. Choose a vegetable-based organic cold-pressed juice instead of those from the store. Don’t forget about condiments either. Sauces and salad dressings are one of the sneakiest places sugar can be hiding. If you’re feeling uneasy about the amount of sugar you find in something, find a recipe and make your own!


Cinnamon has been found in many studies to reduce fasting blood sugar levels and is also high in antioxidants. While sugar decreases your immunity, cinnamon mixed with a little raw honey and taken together can help to improve your immunity over a period of time. Add cinnamon to your coffee, hot chocolate, smoothie, oatmeal and in baked goods or bliss balls to add sweetness without the sugar.
