Bananas and grapes are delicious fruits but they contain high amounts of fiber and natural sugar (fructose). When we eat these fruits it can give us a sugar spike or commonly known as sugar rush.
You can still eat them but eat them sparingly and try other variants of fruit instead.
If you're opting to go on a low sugar diet, dried fruits may not be the best suitable choice for you.
Dried fruit is a great snack as long as you're aware of how much of it you are eating. It's packed with nutrients but the drying process removes the water and concentrates a lot of the sugar in a small bite.
If you love milk in your coffee or tea, the good news is milk isn't considered as added sugar because it has it's own natural sugar you may or may not know as lactose.
Milk isn't as overwhelming to the liver as added sugar would be. However, if you drink milk from soy or nuts, check the label because many of those products contain added sugar.
If you're planning to go on a no-sugar, no-grain diet plan here are some breakfast ideas for you:
Many brands of oats have added sugar in them so it's always best to check the label for zero grams of sugar.
Bread making has become a popular hobby nowadays and although it is time consuming, we feel rewarded once we get a taste.
Nevertheless, handmade bread contains much less sugar than processed ones. If you bake bread with molasses, you should keep in mind that molasses is added sugar. Try opting for a recipe with less added sugar, it's better for your body.
Drinking it in the morning is a poor choice because it will give you a morning sugar spike and will cause you to crash midday or in the early afternoon.
Although it is a natural food, the juicing process of it takes out much of the fiber and concentrates on the sugar content. Have it as a weekly treat instead and opt for iced water with orange wedges to keep the citrus in your daily routine.
In 2020, most large food makers are asked to list their "added sugar" on the nutrition facts label and they have been required to do so.
Smaller companies are not exempted from the requirement but are given until 2021 to comply. This rule will help consumers to figure out the natural sugars from the added sugar.
