31 Ways to Eat and Slim #16

16) Surrender sweets.

Basically this tip is to be mindful of added sugar. Self says that on average women down about 18 teaspoons (1/3 of a cup!!) of added sugar a day (that's even with avoiding soda and the white packets!!). To limit your added sugar quota, scan labels on instant oatmeal, cereal, canned fruit and sauces for corn syrup, molasses, honey or anything that ends in ose (such as dextrose or maltose) - they are all aliases for sugar!

My skinny - Okay well Paul is very mindful of added sugar because he's pretty much diabetic (long story). So anyways we buy almost everything "Sugar-Free" which only means No Sugar Added. You would be surprised on how much stuff adds sugar. I mean even applesauce! Also be careful of the Sugar - Free it can sometimes contain aspartame. However, a lot of products now boast that they have Splenda...which taste better as well. If you are cutting out eating actual sweets like candy, cakes, etc. don't blow it by eating a "good for you cereal" with tons of added sugar. Take a look at the labels...you will be shocked.
