Limit The Sugar You Put in Your Coffee

Coffee has become a huge staple in many people’s diets today. With the ubiquitous sight of coffee shops like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts popping up on every corner in every neighborhood, coffee drinking has become more than just getting a cup in the morning, it has become a way of life.

Some people drink three cups or more coffee per day and adding sugar to your espresso or any other coffee creation can really start to add up.

In addition, adding creamer which also has sugar, can really start to the spike the sweetener’s your using on a consistent basis.

How do you overcome this?

You can start by limiting the amount of sugar you put in your coffee. Instead of adding 3 sugars, minimize the amount to 2 or 1 sugar per cup and eventually eliminate sugar entirely opting for just creamer only.

By minimizing your sweetener overtime, you can kick the habit gradually and before you know it, you’ll be drinking coffee without adding sugar at all.

If you’re really bold, you can stop adding sugar cold turkey and accomplish the goal in no time, however, many people find that by gradually decreasing the amount of sugar used, you accomplish your goal and stay committed to the process.

Why?

Because you’ve trained your body and taste buds slowly.

Eat More Fruits

Truthfully, your body needs sugar. However, you don’t need artificial sweeteners. One of the ways you can keep some sweets in your life is by consuming it in the form of fruits.

By consuming fruits, you give yourself the necessary sugar your body needs without consuming the bad sugar like table sugar which causes many of the negative effects and diseases we are so accustomed to hearing about.

Detox From all Sugar Entirely

If your sugar addiction is really bad and compulsive in nature, you can eliminate sugar in all its forms entirely from your diet for a short period of time.

This is a drastic change which should only be done if your addiction has gotten the best of you in terms of causing obesity or any other life altering disease you might be dealing with.

So what does eliminating sugar entirely from your diet look like?

A complete purging. This means, eliminating not only table sugar, but also dairy, fruits and refined grains like white rice, white bread, pasta etc. Some experts believe that by doing this you shock your body and train your brain to accept your new lifestyle.

After 30 days you gradually add fruits and dairies back into your diet but stay away from table sugar. Health experts advise against not eating sugar at all however your body needs healthy forms of sugar that come from fruits and dairy products such as almond or coconut milk.

Eat More Protein

Eating more protein can also help kick the sugar habit. Foods such as lean chicken breast, lean beef, eggs, nuts and yogurt contain high levels of protein. These foods digest at a slower rate which results in feeling full sooner.

By eating more protein and limiting your carbs you also limit your sugar intake since carbs also turn into sugars and protein helps you to get full faster.

Sugar can also be hidden in foods like various sauces you eat in restaurants or in condiments such as barbecue sauce and ketchup.

So you should really think twice before adding sauces to your meats as well, as these can also spike the level of sugar you are consuming.

Sugar Addicts

As you can see, there are some simple ways you can get over sugar addiction. Many people are burden by doing too much, however you can start getting over sugar addiction with simple and easy ways we’ve recommended.

Remember, the most important thing is to start and if you make a mistake along the process stay focused and get back on track. Nothing succeeds like success.

  1. Howdy Chris. I just noticed that franchises like Starbucks are sugar seducer. Like the ads they’ve put outside the store I walk past by, those sweet looking frap.

    For the past few months, I’ve to admit, my eating lifestyle to me isn’t quite healthy. Yes, I eat broccoli but there are times I eat cupcakes and donuts everyday!

    I realised that should be stop. I am still trying to find the right balance but all is well planned now, so no worries for me.

  2. One of my goals is to limit my sugar in 2016 and I have been doing that succesfully so far.

    I;ve been cutting back slowly on the sugar in my coffee by adding a very small amount of salt. It removes the bitterness o the coffee. Have you ever heard about that?

    Also I’ve been drinking more and more tea (I don’t add sugar) in my tea.

    Can’t say I feel the effect too much but I’m happy with my progress.

  3. Thanks for these tips. I know exactly what you mean about the coffee. Its become a way of socialising – especially in my circle of friends – moms swopping stories about their children over a cuppa. I’ve just realised the weight has been packing on, so I’m trading a cappuccino now & then for a herbal tea (no milk, no sugar). Is Chai tea an option, or too much hidden sugar?

    I tried a 30 day fast once, or was it 10 days? Oops, its so long ago I can’t remember (1995)! I do remember that we had to re-introduce each of the food groups slowly, starting with veg & fruit, the easiest things to digest. Thanks for the reminder to eat more fruit. Will give it a go again & see whether my sweet tooth cravings subside.

  4. Good advice and I will try to implement some things. The video is very helpful. I am definitely going to try to get more Healthy fat, protein and fibre in my diet. And add in foods to help balance my blood sugar and keep me full longer to overcome sugar cravings. Thanks for the information.

  5. Oh my gosh Chris you really nailed it with this post. I cringed when I read the bit about the sugar in the coffee.
    I have been on a sugar detox recently and I am doing really well with it… except of course for the sugar in my coffee. That is the only thing I have not been able to kick yet.
    I have cut out Coca Cola though… which I consider quite an achievement. I will try your suggestion of cutting down slowly on the sugar.

    1. Yeah sweet coffee tends to be the downfall of a lot of people Lynne – it’s just one of those things you’ve got to overcome I’m afraid. I was lucky in that I never used a sweetener etc in my coffee (rubbing it in now LOL!)

  6. I like the idea of weaning yourself off of sugar because it’s easier to have smaller amounts of something you love than to take it out completely. However, if you’re trying to quit cold turkey why would you also need to eliminate dairy, fruits, and pastas from your diet? It seems that this would make it much harder to quit and make it harder to get a well balanced diet.

    1. I’m afraid that’s part of the process involved Jessica – we had a guest expert write this article for us and she has rules…that MUST be obeyed!!!! 🙂

      No seriously, she knows what she’s talking about!

  7. Your post was a big reminder of how sugar can be a killer.
    As one gets older you realize that health comes first and without one can do nothing. Since joining the gym I have been using less sugar and substituting it with more natural sweeteners, like fresh fruit, raisins dates etc.
    I have become very health conscious and have also cut down on the amount of food I am eating.I see this Venus Factor Weight Loss System is for Women. Have the manufacturer produced a weight loss system for men as well

    1. Hi Richard,

      Not as far as I know so far – the Venus Factor is indeed aimed at women but there are sections that men can use as well. It’s hard to separate the two at times but there are things that work much better with women than men!

      If you check out our Product Reviews tab at the top of the site you will find a great selection of weight loss and health guides aimed at both men and women – maybe a better shot for you?
