Sugar Awareness Week
It’s Sugar Awareness Week!
Sugar Awareness Week is a week to raise awareness of the health impacts of consuming excess sugar. The aim of the week is to get people talking about the importance of sugar reduction, and to encourage citizens, the food industry and the government to take action so we can all access and enjoy healthier food.
You can find out more about sugar awareness week by visiting Action on Sugar.
Many people find that Apple Cider Vinegar is great for curbing sugar cravings. ACV contains acetic acid known mainly for its antimicrobial properties. However, some research shows that it may also help regulate blood sugar and insulin levels, which can lead to a reduction in sugar cravings.
Alongside having your daily dose of ACV, I have a few other tips which may also help to reduce sugar cravings:
- Eat plenty of fibre: fibre helps to aid digestion and keep you satiated after eat meal. Reach for things like leafy greens, wholegrains, and veggies such as pumpkin and sweet potato.
- Practice mindfulness: sugar cravings are often connected with high stress. By practising mindful activities like going for a walk, reading a book or catching up with an old friend, it can help reduce stress levels and curb those cravings.
- Eat plenty of protein and healthy fats: by including meat and non-meat proteins in your diet, as well as healthy fats such as avocado and coconut oil, research has found that this can help to curb those sugar cravings.
- Keep to regular mealtimes: this will keep you feeling satiated throughout the day and less likely to reach for sugary snacks.
