Reduce sugar intake to the extent possible


Sugary drinks like sodas, fruit juices, and sweetened teas are the primary source of added sugar in the American diet.

Unfortunately, findings from several studies point to sugar-sweetened beverages increases the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, even in people who are not carrying excess body fat.

Sugar-sweetened beverages are also uniquely harmful to children, as they can contribute not only to obesity in children but also to conditions that usually do not develop until adulthood, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease .

Not only Sugar drinks but some types of food also gives sugar to the body. Even rice gives sugar to the body. So it is better to reduce rice quantities and take green vegetables more in quantity.

Eating fruits directly with pulp is better than having canned juices mixed with sugar and other things. Eating baked foods made of maida is also very bad for health.
