Why does everything contain Sugar?
« on: December 24, 2011, 12:58:51 AM »
I lost quite a few pounds following a diet that reccomended that you only injest 15 grams of sugar a day with 1 cheat day where you can go nuts
The problem is everything contains sugar, or worse yet chemical sweeteners which have their own issues. Two slices of even multi grain bread could use up a third of your daily intake of sugar, a cup if milk can do the same

Has anyone else tried this diet and have tips to help along?

For my tips I make my own iced tea with stevia for a sweetener, or use one of those teas with dried fruit to reduce the need of sweetness

Vannilla is a awesome sweetener with no calorie attachment just a little replaces the need for sugar

I'm thinking of using nori for making sandwiches, it's good for sushi and packs a nutrient punch that flatbread lacks

Don't eat bread, cereals, or pastas, and you're good

fruits, vege, meat, fish, birds, eggs, nuts, and that's about it works pretty well.
