2. Always Read Labels

It’s important to always read the labels of food products before buying and eating them. Very often, products that claim to be low fat or diet alternatives are still packed full of added sugars.

Words like malt syrup, invert sugar, agave nectar and corn syrup are all things to look out for and avoid. Familiarise yourself with all the sneaky names for sugar – there are dozens of them. There is always a handy stat that shows you how much of the total sugar content comes from added sugar sources so look for that on food labels.
