So you’ve decided to make the switch to a sugar free diet? Or you’re just thinking about cutting out a few items? Whichever it is – congratulations! You’ve made the important first step. Making the transition to a no sugar diet can be challenging, but planning ahead will definitely help you through any hurdles.

The important thing to realise is that your body wants a sugar free diet. When we have cravings, we have the urge to binge on sugar-loaded foods because all of us are naturally addicted to sugar, despite how bad it is for us. Weaning ourselves off it and onto a no sugar diet can be a challenging process, more so for others.

Maintaining a sugar free diet has numerous benefits that extend far beyond than the overarching theme that it’s healthy. Consuming large amounts of sugar can lead to complications of diabetes, so it’s important that a sugar free diet is combined with a diabetic diet for a healthier and complication-free lifestyle.

To make the transition to a sugar free diet as easy as possible, we encourage you to use our helpful hints, recipes, advice and articles to help you plan and live a sugar free diet life.
