You need to reduce how much sugar you are consuming, plus put healthier items in its place, if you want the best results.
How You Can Reduce Sugar and Boost NutritionCutting down on how much sugar you consume is great for you. However, you also need to replace what you are eating with healthier options. Many people reduce their sugar by adding in alternative sweeteners.
This may lower the calories, but doesn't do much to boost your nutrition. Try adding in fruits first, so you still get the rush of the sweet flavors. Then, branch out to vegetables once your palate is used to fruits as your main source of sweet foods. You will be more apt to be able to taste the sweetness of the vegetables at that point.
If you are cutting out sugar, make sure you are planning your replacement options out ahead of time. Have healthy snacks on hand, like fresh produce, nuts, and dairy (such as cheeses and yogurts that you like), so you will be less likely to pick up something sugary or junk food.
For reduced sugar intake to really make an impact, it needs to come with nutritious changes in your diet.
