I really need to cut down on how much sugar I eat/ drink. Any tips? What's the best way to cut it out of tea/coffee? I only have 1, would it just be best to drink less cups or try to stop adding it? I need more self control but determined to lose my mum tum
A teaspoon of sugar only has 15 calories. If you need to lose a mum utm it's more than sugar in tea and coffee that needs worrying about. No snacking, portion control and if you must have a dessert then a small portion of fruit or yogurt.
I read somewhere that it takes 20 tastes to get used to something so I just went cold turkey on the taking sugar in tea and coffee. It was vile for a while but I very quickly got used to it. I also cut out refined sugar which reduced my sweet tooth and sugar cravings massively. It was all part of a plan to lose lots of weight, which worked.
15 calories on it's own isn't a lot but they are empty calories (so what is the point in having them) and it depends on how many cups of tea or coffee you have a day.
