Ask yourself when you’re about to sacrifice your sugar quota whether there are any sugar-free alternatives. Here’s 5 Ways to Treat Yourself Without Cheating Yourself to start you off.

Staying active will decrease your stress levels and also prevent you from binge eating. Binge eating is one of the many causes that prevents you from reaching that beach body goal. This is because of the high sugar consumption level which makes it difficult for your body to tone up. Exercising will also keep your mind off eating that piece of cake, and the 20 Things That Crosses Our Mind When We Think of Cake.

It is important that you stick to three main meals, each containing a high nutritional value. This could be done by including at least two fruits and three vegetables in your diet, as well as adding a serving of protein. By sticking to three main meals, it will decrease your likelihood of snacking throughout the day, which means that you won’t be eating unnecessary calories and food high in sugar. Foods such as a rainbow paddle pop stick contains up to 13.5grams, so consuming one will definitely throw all your efforts away.
