Cut the Junk Part 2

Hello again, hopefully you’ve decreased the amount of sugar that you’ve been drinking. Did you know sugar is the culprit behind many diseases. Check out this article. While in the beginning it might be hard to do, because you’re so used to having so much sugar, it eventually gets easier and you may be more aware of how certain foods make you feel. Did you ever notice that American sweets or food in general is so much sweeter that their European counterparts?

This time you have two jobs:

1. Read labels, become aware of the type of fuel you’re fueling your body with. Stay clear of cereals with high sugar contents. Many cereals have 13g of sugar way too much! Yep even those granolas, not so healthy. Aim for 5g and above of fiber in your bread. Did you taste Ezekiel bread yet? It doesn’t taste the same as regular bread, it’s denser, and has a nutty flavor and keeps you full for longer. If you’re not ready for that yet, find a whole wheat bread with more than 5g fiber.

2. Write down whatever you eat in a food journal. There are many sites that can help you with this. My Fitness Pal, Calorie Counter, Spark People etc. You might try a few before you settle on which one you like best, the good thing is they’re all free to  use.
