As an almost but not quite degree qualified nutritionist, I know that eliminating sugar from your diet makes for a healthier & happier you.

Reasons to give it up are plenty, but here are a few:

😊 Increases your energy & focus – goodbye 3pm slumps – whoo hoo!

😊 In a better moods, more frequently – a good thing for everyone!

😊 Better health & vitality in general – winning!

😊 Big improvements in gut & immune health – love it!

😊 Hormones don’t spike – they’re just better balanced which makes a better you!

😊 Reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes & cancer – another win!

😊 Steady weight loss – a happy coincidence for most people!

😊 Your skin looks better – everyone loves that!

OK, curbing cravings can be hard, but here are some tips:

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Remove any temptation from the pantry – fill it with the good stuff.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Add cinnamon – it balances the sugar levels & reduces the cravings

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Add in heaps of natural flavours – try fresh herbs or use spices, a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Add protein at every meal – try beans, Greek yoghurt, eggs, fish, poultry or meat.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Add good fats at every meal – think avocado, nuts, seeds & or my fav extra virgin olive oil.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Avoid processed foods, stick with whole foods.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Have plenty of water – dehydration can be confused with cravings.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ If boredom or stress eating strikes strikes – refocus & de stress by going for a walk, have a bath, do some gardening, whatever just get up & do something you love.

Often sugar is hidden where we least expect it (along with salt) but choosing to eat whole foods, cuts down those risks.  It is hard, but so beneficial to your health & wellbeing.

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
