Change what & when you eat

Sugar is one of the main culprits associated with weight gain. It is found in all sorts of unexpected foods from tomato sauce to fat-free yoghurt. Read labels! Choose options with less than 8g of sugar per serving.

People who eat large amounts of food that are high in refined sugars are more likely to suffer from diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure and our universal ingredient is the key to prevent this from happening.
