A Sugar Weight Loss Plan That’s Easy To Follow!

As you’ve heard and read hundreds of times, the way to lose weight is through eliminating sugar from your diet.

No matter how true that may be or how often you’ve heard it, that doesn’t make it easy to stay on a sugar weight loss plan.

So let’s look at where all this sugar is coming from – knowingly and unknowingly that’s keeping the average overweight American addicted.

You’re very much aware when you eat a piece of cake, candy or ice cream but did you know that unknowingly, you’re adding sugar every day through:

  • Fruit drinks and any drink labeled an ‘ade’ – not 100% fruit juice
  • Soda, energy drinks and sports drinks
  • Low-fat foods
  • Most all processed and packaged foods
  • Most every cereal on the market
  • Yogurt

Here’s a statistic that will shock most everyone:

The average American today alone will consume 22 teaspoons of sugar or 355 extra calories from sugar.

In 2009, the American Heart Association published a “Scientific Statement” about the dangers of dietary sugar intake and cardiovascular health.

The AHA, for the first time, issued daily sugar intake guidelines:

Women should consume no more than 6 teaspoons (about 100 calories or 25 grams) of added sugar daily and most men no more than 9 teaspoons (about 150 calories or 37.5 grams).

And how much is the average American consuming daily? 22 teaspoons.

Here’s where it gets tricky.  Those “unknown’ areas where sugar hides such as cereals, soft drinks, yogurts, manufactured and processed foods (even granola) are complicated further by corn sweetener, corn syrups, dextrose, high fructose, honey, molasses, sucrose maltose, and syrups!

If a sugar weight loss plan is your goal, then the AHA recommendations above are too generous to help you achieve that goal.

As the AHA’s study indicated, there’s a link between high sugar intake and insulin resistance, high blood pressure, triglycerides, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

The AHA’s final conclusion – “There is sufficient evidence to link excessive sugar intake to the pandemic of obesity and cardiovascular disease.”

So how do you curb your addiction to something sweet, forego sugar cravings that have become stronger than your will to resist?  How do you help avoid the diseases associated with sugar?
