Tired Parent: Could Sugar causing you to look even more over tired?
Sugar is often hidden in foods you think are healthy
Regardless of how healthy you think your diet may be, if your skin is not as fresh and bright as it used to be, start paying attention to the processed foods in your diet to see what effect they might be having. Most nutritionists will tell you that sugar is one of the negative foods in your diet. It’s an ingredient that is very difficult to avoid if you’re not paying attention. Foods such as pasta sauce, yoghurt, spreads, crackers and chewing gum are laden with sugar to enhance taste.
Do you have a sweet tooth?
The go-to food for many people when you’re feeling tired, emotional or overwhelmed is chocolates and sweets. You don’t have to give them up completely, however, you will find the moment you reduce your sugar intake, your cravings for sugar will reduce also. If you have a sweet tooth, there are loads of sugar free treats you can introduce into your lifestyle so you don’t feel you are missing out.
