Too much sugar in your body can really wreak havoc on how you look and feel. The sweet stuff is fine in small amounts when you save it for your cheat day. However, cutting back overall is important for saving your skin and helping whittle your waistline. Easier said than done, right? Here's a guide, courtesy of Eat Well, Live Well, that will help you cut the bad stuff and focus on the good, one week at a time.

Week one: Eat a minimum of two different fruits or vegetables (preferably organic) with every breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal.

Week two: Beverages will be limited to coffee, tea, water, and milk (only naturally sweetened with a little honey or 100% pure maple syrup)

Week three: All meat consumed this week will be locally raised and will be limited to 3-4 times per week

Week four: No fast food or any foods that have been deep-fried in oil.

Week five: Try a minimum of two new whole foods that you’ve never had before.

Week six: Do not eat any food products that are labeled as “low-fat,” “lite,” “light,” “reduced fat,” or “nonfat.”

Week seven: All grains consumed must be 100% whole-grain.

Week eight: Listen to your internal cues and stop eating when you feel full.

Week nine: No refined or artificial sweeteners.

Week ten: No refined or hydrogenated oil

Week eleven: Eat at least 1 locally grown or raised food at each meal.

Week twelve: Avoid all added sweeteners.

Week thirteen: Avoid any and all packaged food products that contain more than five ingredients no matter what they are.

It will be great if you can mention food varieties that can eaten ...

Hey, can you please explain why should the products with labels like 'low fat or lite' be avoided? I thought they were healthier.
