Sugar is one of the most used ingredients in our daily routine. It is part of the coffee and donuts we take every morning, cakes, teas, some flours, and other processed food items. Sugar is part of the carbs needed in every diet; however, you must limit yourself and consume just what is needed and avoid the excess.
Can sugar be substituted?
Yes, you can substitute sugar by itself and even certain foods containing this ingredient. You can also try using sweetener products like honey, stevia, cane sugar, maple syrup, etc.
Sugar face is a term used to refer to your face when you have dark circles and puffiness, redness, pimples, lines, and wrinkles, and is lacking shine. It is easily recognizable by a professional. This combination is a clear sign that you are abusing sugar on your diet, specifically processed sugar.
How can I remove sugar from my diet?
It is not an easy process, and you have to do it gradually. Start by slowly reducing the amount of sugar that you use on your coffee and other drinks; at one point, you won’t feel you need to add any sweetener anymore.
