#3 – Avoid Sugar
Sugar is the enemy, leading to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. This is serious stuff. But what about losing fat? By limiting your sugar intake, you significantly lessen your risk of developing insulin resistance, a condition where excess insulin is released into the bloodstream but is ineffective at shifting sugar into the cells. Unfortunately, this hormone also tells fat cells to collect fat from the bloodstream and hold onto it, contributing to obesity. If you’re going to eat sugar, get it from fruit – far more nutritious than its processed enemies – as it contains vitamins, minerals, fibre and water.
