Eat whole unprocessed foods with nothing added, for instance whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, fresh fruits and vegetables as well as unprocessed meat, poultry and fish. Eliminate soft drinks, sugary fruit juices and baked foods with sugar additives Replace refined sugar with brown rice syrup Do not use sugar substitutes, especially aspartame, or aspartame sweetened foods. These break down into substances which degrade into toxins Let desserts be special, not an everyday affair. Serve dessert alone, away from protein and fat meals. Fruit desserts are the best Use unsweetened juice; make your own fresh squeezed juice rather than take processed and sweetened juices If you must use canned fruit, choose one without sugar additives or take fruits canned in their own juice Snack on whole foods like nuts and seeds, fruits, or veggies rather than candy or sweets Eliminate processed cereals entirely and make whole or cracked grain cereals, or granola using fruits as a sweetener. Eliminate refined sugar when taking cereals and fruits and beverages; use natural sweeteners if necessary. The best way to avoid sugar is not to have it in your house To help reduce cravings, supplement your diet with a good quality high potency multi-vitamin and mineral, 2 to3g of Vitamin C, an anti-oxidant formula and essential fatty acids like flax or fish oil.
