How to replace sugar, except for honey and fructose

Sugar is one of the main culprits in excess weight gain. It is this product that nutritionists advise to give up in the first place if you want to lose weight.

Living without sweets is a difficult task, and sometimes impossible. If you want to have a beautiful figure, sugar in the diet must be replaced by other foods that are also sweet in taste and have a low glycemic index.

  • Interesting: the glycemic index is an indicator that determines how much blood sugar rises after consuming a particular product.

The first thing that comes to mind is, of course, honey and fructose. Let's see what other foods can replace sugar and positively affect your figure.



This natural sweetener is derived from stevia leaves. Today you can find this product in any supermarket. It is usually sold in powder form. Although, some people prefer to add simply dry leaves of this plant, which also give sweetness.

When buying a stavia, be sure to pay attention to the fact that there are no additives in the composition of the powder. Often, manufacturers add synthetic sweeteners to reduce the cost of production, which, of course, deceives the consumer.

Price: from 80 hryvnia for dry leaves to 500 hryvnia for powder.
