How to reduce your sugar intake?

1.Make the right changes.
When cutting back on heart-risky foods, such unhealthy fats, it’s important to replace them with healthy alternatives. Replacing animal fats with vegetable fats—such as ditching butter for olive oil—can make a positive difference to your health. But switching animal fats for refined carbohydrates, e.g bacon with a donut—won’t do anything to lower your risk for cardiovascular disease.
2 Slowly reduce the sugar in your diet a little at a time to give your taste buds time to adjust and wean yourself off the craving for sweetness.
3.Check labels and choose low-sugar products. Remember low-fat doesn’t mean low-sugar.
4.Avoid processed or packaged foods like canned soups, frozen dinners, or low-fat meals that often contain hidden sugar. Prepare more meals at home and using fresh ingredients.
5.Be careful when eating out. Most gravy, dressings and sauces are packed with salt and sugar, so ask for them to be served on the side.
6.Cut down on sweet snacks such as chocolate, and cakes. Instead, eat naturally sweet food such as fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth.
7.Avoid sugary drinks.
Even drinking diet sodas containing artificial sweeteners can make it harder to kick your craving for sugary foods. Try drinking sparkling water with a splash of fruit juice instead.
