Reducing sugar intake is one of the first steps you could make towards a healthier diet, but it’s easier said than done. If you don’t want to completely change the way you eat or obsessively check the labels of everything you buy, making these three small changes will help you eat less sugar.

Cut Down on Soda

If soda happens to be a part of your daily diet, it’s time to ditch it altogether. If cutting it out completely seems like too much, gradually reduce your soda intake and consider replacing it with drinks that contain a lower sugar intake.

Empty Shelves

It’s pretty difficult to stop eating candy when your kitchen shelves are always stocked with them. You won’t be as tempted to eat chocolate, ice cream, and other sweet treats when you don’t have them at home because you’re probably doing it out of habit or boredom, not because you’re actually hungry.

Fruits, Fruits, Fruits

If you can’t live without sweets, you should use fruits to replace other unhealthy sugary treats. Fresh fruits are your best possible option because dried or canned ones can be packed with sugar if you don’t choose them carefully.
