 Do you know how much SUGAR

is in your food?



We're all about a balanced, healthy lifestyle - and we certainly don't do 'diets'. 
But we do like to provide you with nutritional support, that is achievable, maintainable and works for you. 
When we speak to our members, questions around sugar and sugar consumption are extremely common. 
Should it be cut out? Should it be this high? Everything has sugar in, how do we monitor it?
They are all completely valid questions. 
The first place we like to start with on our nutrition programmes, is simply monitoring what we may eat in a week. You can track this many ways, through a notepad, apps like MyFitnessPal or you can make an excel sheet on your computer or tablet. 
This way, you'll know how much sugar you may be having at the moment, and then introduce ways of reducing it if needed.

As you'll see, sometimes the products we deem as 'healthier choices', are actually packed full of sugar! 

So keeping track will be the first and most vital step.


According to research the goal for sugar content per day is: 


Men: 37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons

Women: 25 grams or 6 teaspoons


Keeping your sugar levels balanced throughout the day, by sticking to a goal can bring many benefits:

- Higher energy levels 

- Better sleep 

- Improved brain function 

- A steady activity level throughout the day
