WHY? All brands of bread (including the ones that claim to be whole wheat) are packed with carbs and refined sugar
HOW: If you usually have a sandwich, put the filling over kale and spinach instead
WHY? Fruit isn’t bad for you, but it does contain lots of sugar
HOW? Swap bananas, apples, pears and grapes for sliced cucumber, celery or raw peppers.
WHY? Certain vegetables have as much sugar as fruit
HOW? Sawp peas, corn, carrots and sweet potatoes with less starchy vegetables.
WHY? Some condiments are all sugar and carbs, so cut out the ketchup and barbecue sauce
HOW? Add flavour to your food with mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper or spices instead
WHY? Most alcohol is packed with sugar and carbs
HOW? Drink clear alcohol, like vodka, and mix it with tonic water instead of fizzy drinks
WHY? Desserts and sugar snacks have no redeeming features, being made entirely from sugar
HOW? Have a hot cup of tea or iced green tea with almond milk to stop cravings
Ask for your meal exactly how you want it at a restaurant
Say no to things your friends are eating
Indulge every now and then – and then get right back to it!
