With all the information available about cutting out sugar, it seems like a fairly straightforward thing to do. Things that sound simple, however, are not always easy. The question is not if you’ll reduce sugar, but how.
The following tips offer a range of strategies, so pick and choose the ones that will work best for you.
It may take some time to wean yourself off sugar: some people go cold turkey and put up with bland food for a week while their taste buds adapt. This is the best approach, but be prepared for some withdrawal symptoms such as cravings, headaches, brain fog, or mood swings. These usually pass within a couple of days, so prepare the family ahead of time and they can help you get through it. Drinking plenty of water, and ensuring you get enough salt can prevent these symptoms.
Others take a slower approach and do it gradually.
