Is Sugar the Culprit?

If you’re struggling to lose weight is sugar the culprit? People I speak with are unaware of the effects of increased sugar on their waist and how much they consume unintentionally. Before we cover a few suggestions here is some background information that will help…
  • Sugar is high in energy and unless expended sits undesirably on your body.
  • The sugar in fruit and fruit juice has the same impact as the sugar in soft drink; the advantage of fruit is the nutrients they contain.
  • Packaged and processed foods often contain excessive sugar and no or low fat foods replace fat with sugar for taste (and other nutritionally poor ingredients).
For many people consuming sugar leads to cravings, excessive consumption and poor health. In moderation sugar is OK. What to do?
  • Remove soft drinks from your diet and dilute 100% fruit juice by 50 – 75%; after initial adjustment you will enjoy it.
  • Reduce fruit to two pieces per day.
  • Decrease alcohol, desserts and take aways and prepare your own meals as often as you can.
  • When cravings strike, sit with them for a couple of minutes and they will dissipate. Abstaining often will reduce cravings and produce fabulous results.
Do your body a favour and decrease sugar in all areas of your diet and your eyes, skin, teeth and brain will thank you. For more information on how KONA can improve the health, wellbeing and productivity of your employees and team call Tim on 1300 611 288 or email
