7. Have patience
When you’ve been reaching for the sweet snacks for a while, your body and your mind become addicted. And like any addiction, it takes time for you to adjust to having less of it.
So, the most challenging thing you have to do when it comes to reducing your sugar intake, is have patience. Allow your body, and your mind, time to adjust to these new eating habits. And, eventually, choosing a bag of cashew nuts over a cupcake will become second nature.
We aren’t suggesting you rule all sugar-based food out completely, we are all human after all. And a slice of cake can make for quite a nice treat now and again. So as the saying goes “everything in moderation”. If you stick to that, the sweet treats will become even more enjoyable when you do have them.
Do share with us any methods you’ve found effective for lessening the amount of sugar in your diet.
