While few things make dieters more morose than going off sugar, nothing makes you lose weight faster than extracting your sweet tooth..and believe it or not, sugar is, surprisingly , one of the easier things to give up. Going low-carb,for example, has a shelf life because your body cannot survive without carbohydrates for too long -they are a vital source of energy. Going without fat is similarly unsustainable. But sugar? Your body simply doesnt need it, which makes going off it a more achievable proposition, especially in the long run.
And yet, it is easier said than done. Sugar is everywhere. Not only is it found in more obvious food items, like cupcakes, muffins,gulab jamuns,and the like,its also in foods people dont think much about as far as sugar goes- like premixed tea and coffee, in bread,or even in savoury biscuits,processed and packaged foods. So how can you get them out of your body without losing your mind? You can start by understanding how your bodyu works? Your body runs on sugar but not the sugar you love eating.everything you eat, be it a slice of pizza or a roti or rich cake – is broken down into glucose or blood sugar. For complete control over sugary cravings , your blood sugar levels need to be stable. But sugary foods destabilise your sugar levels,which gives you a boost of energy. Thats followed by an immediate phase of low energy , caused by your sugar levels coming down crashing. Your body at this moment craves sugar to make you feel better-and thus begins the vicious cycle.
