I have previously written “A Good Breakfast is a Key to Your Weight Loss Success”, 12 Tips to Help You Drink More Water”, "7 Tips to Stop Eating Before You Feel "Stuffed" ", ’”0 Tips for Reducing Fat in Your Diet” and that the “Power of One” was a must have diet book . Here is another diet strategy from “Lose Weight with THE POWER OF ONE.” The book says that you should…” Reduce the Amount of Sugar in Your Daily Life As Low As Possible”.

While reducing the amount of sugar in your daily life to be more successful in your diet and to lead a healthier life might seem like a “no brainer”, it is still worth doing. The various forms of excess sugar along with excess fat are stored by your body. Eating too much sugar or fats can lead to a whole host health related maladies. Many people have developed diabetes as a result of too much sugar in their diet. Because sugar can be digested and put to use in your blood stream quicker than fat, some effects on your body can be more immediate.

Here are some tips for reducing the amount of sugar in your daily life…

· Skip that sweet snack.

· Drink water or a diet drink instead of that sugar sweetened cola or soft drink.

· Try your coffee or tea without sugar to see if you really need the sweet taste or if this has just become a habit that you don’t even think about any longer.

· Read you recipes, you might be able to greatly reduce the amount of sugar without really effecting the taste.

· Substitute low calorie sweeteners in recipes, coffee, tea, and etc.

· Substitute a healthy snack for that sweet snack. Note, while eating fruit is healthier than a snack full of sugar, fruit contains fructose, which is turned into sugar by your body. As a diabetic, you can eat a certain amount of fruit in a day, so this might be a strategy for you.

· If you’re really craving that sweet dessert that you saw on display at the restaurant, try reducing that portion. Maybe you could as for half a piece or split it with some of the other guests in your party.

With some thought and effort, you can see that you can really reduce the amount of sugar in your daily life. These seven tips can be very effective.
