Veggies that are good; pumpkin, carrots, potatoes, beans
Hope this helps and keep up the good work.😊
No, you shouldn’t omit fruit from your diet , they contain natural fructose , high in fibers and vitamins. Eat 2-3 portions of fruit daily, minimize your intake from high calorie fruit, but if you stick to portion size the is no harm ☺️
More fiber, protein, unsaturated fats, slow carbs, vitamins and minerals.
Less saturated fats, fast carbs, ADDED sugar (this is the one that is bad for you, not fruit sugar) and salt.
I’m sorry if that sounded complicated to you, but it’s really super useful just learning this few basic facts! I recommend screenshotting if you’d like ❤️
Even though it may not seem like it now, in the long run it’s MUCH easier to learn the things I listed above. And you want healthy eating to last your whole life, right? 😁 All food have nutrition labels so you know which for example nuts are the best for you based on the basic facts you know. In that way you’ll not get frustrated by fake facts and unhealthy blow-up diets that want you to cut out the things that are good for you (like fruit)! 😱
This got long hahah but I love helping people with this ❤️ Remember to treat yourself with delicious added sugar a couple days in the week! Good luck, and great job getting started! 🍌
But if you still want to cut sugary fruits, eliminate first the ones with a lot of water and stay with bananas apples and others alike.
Lemons (and limes) High in vitamin C, lemons and their lime green counterparts are fairly sour fruits. …
The thing is if you avoid sugar in other products you can eat any fruit and it's pleasing and tasty, also not so stressfull as with avoiding all sorts of food.
Just don’t forget to add some sort of nuts or wholemeal crackers to boost your energy and not to feel hungry again soon
The above fruits contain between 1 and 13 grams of sugar, serving size makes a difference
Going back to fruits and vegetables is in itself healthier than processed food…so I think that you should just enjoy you choice.
This way I make sure I don't get in empty calories with gives me nothing more than the sugar they carry.
My best friend is a green apple.
As the old saying goes :"an apple a day keeps the doctor away "
Being married to a physician, it kind of makes it hilarious for me but you will hardly see me around without these grand smith greenies in my hand.
I hope I have been of any advice to you dear fellow.
My Step 2 would be to purge your pantry. Most of the sugary stuff we eat goes in dry storage: cereal, pastries, cookies & snacks, etc. There’s certain stuff we know we shouldn’t eat, but we get tempted anyway and it unravels us. The best way to avoid that is to get the temptation out of your face!(Side note: bread products are really high in sugar too – just in the form of carbs! It’s your choice if you want to count carbs as sugar. Just be warned, that will make this thing MUCH harder! If you do want to try it, just subtract the amount of fiber in a product from the amount of carbs. Whatever is left of the carbs when you take away the fiber is basically sugar! Foods with high sugary-carbs are the ones you will want to avoid.)
My step three would be, yep, stick to fruits. Veggies are great too! It’s true a lot of fruits are pretty high in natural sugars, but in my opinion that’s still way better than the added & processed sugars we eat all the time! I think it’s worth it, because it will help curb any cravings that might pop up. Things like raspberries, blueberries, and bananas are surprisingly satisfying when you’re craving a little something sweet.
