5 Simple Steps to Quit Sugar

Sugar is a sneaky thing – it’s hiding everywhere and in many places you may not even realize! The thing is, when you think of sugar, I’m not only talking about table sugar. Sugar is found in many foods like yogurt, granola, protein drinks, energy bars, cereal, muffins, nut butters, coconut water, green juices, whole grain bread, Even 1 Tbsp. of your raw honey has 4 tsp. of added sugar…that’s okay but when we aren’t supposed to get more than 6 tsp. of sugar a day (women) and 9 tsp. per day (men) it all adds up quickly. Did you know the average breakfast of gluten-free cereal with fat free milk, yogurt and a banana adds up to a whopping 67 g. (22 tsp.) of sugar!?!?! I know you get it by now… While real-food sources of sugar can be incorporated in the right balance in a healthy diet, let’s chat about how we can quit sugar and rid ourselves from the foggy, fatigued and fat feeling it brings with it!
