Avoid sugar at all costs

Cheat days. We all have them. It’s a relief from a stringent eating plan, recovery from a late night out or just a craving satisfied. Veering off the path of healthy eating for a day or two isn’t the end of the world – in moderation. Make it a habit, and you could end up in a cycle of unhealthy food choices.

Avoid sugar at all costs. If your cheat day has sparked a craving, try drinking herbal tea sweetened with a sugar alternative like Canderel Crunch granules with Stevia or Sucralose. These smart sweeteners have no effect on blood sugar, zero kilojoules and are low in carbohydrates. They’re also beneficial for managing high blood pressure – perfect for worry-free sweetness and comfort the day after a binge. Snacking on sugary foods will only perpetuate cravings.
