Cutting out sugar when you are used to it regularly can be a huge challenge. Sugar is certainly addictive. So learning to replace that sugar with nutrient dense foods is key to success. When you get a will roused nutrient rich diet, you do not crave sweets nearly as often. So, to help you with the change, I found some tips.
Seven Simple Steps for Successful Low Glycemic Eating
1. Eat plenty of fiber-rich vegetables like dark leafy greens, spaghetti squash
2.Beware of over doing fruit (apples, pears, peaches, and berries have a lower GI than tropical fruits, like papaya and mangoes).
3. Eat every couple of hours to keep blood sugar stable.
4. Eat protein with every meal and snack
5. Drink lots of water (sometimes we think we are hungry when actually we are thirsty)
6. Always have a delicious salad made up and ready to eat.
7. Snack on vegetables like jicama, bell peppers, spaghetti squash and edamame.
