How To Cut Down on Sugar feat Heavenly Blush

Over the past 20 years, obesity has increased remarkably in Indonesia across all population groups, including rural and low income strata. The problem is particularly severe among women. Panel regressions confirm that changing food consumption patterns, coupled with decreasing physical activity, directly contribute to this trend. The 2007 RISKESDAS Riset Kesehatan Dasar (Indonesian basic health Survey) showed that 70 percent of children aged 10-14 were not getting enough exercise. Other studies show that Indonesian children spend more than 26 hours a week watching television, playing game and internet. According to Riskesdas  only 1.4 percent of people aged 16-18 years were obese, but for people over eighteen it suddenly reached 21.7 percent. 

In Indonesia every convenient store and supermarket selling REALLY SWEET BAVERAGES in a bottles, cans and boxes you named it. It creating weight problems, too much sugar causes energy spikes and has been linked to diabetes, depression. so here are some of my major tips how to cut down on sugar :

1. Slowly reduce the sugar in your diet a little at a time to give your taste buds time to adjust and wean yourself off the craving
2. Don’t replace saturated fat with sugar. Many of us make the mistake of replacing healthy sources of saturated fat, such as whole milk dairy, with refined carbs or sugary foods, thinking we’re making a healthier choice. Low-fat doesn’t necessarily mean healthy, especially when the fat has been replaced by added sugar to make up for loss of taste. 
3. Avoid processed or packaged foods like canned soups, frozen dinners, or low-fat meals that often contain hidden sugar that quickly surpasses the recommended limit. 
4. Be careful when eating out.  Most gravy, dressings and sauces are also packed with salt and sugar, so ask for it to be served on the side and when i am eating out in restaurant i mostly order tea without any sugar, fruit juice with less sugar, or mineral water. i do like italian and japanese restaurant bot equaly but when i have to choose i always pick sushi restaurant obviously because it's healthier.
5. When you do grocery shopping always check labels and choose low-sugar products. How to easily pick healthier snack than any sweet snack is SIMPLE. DON'T BUY IT, SO YOU DON'T HAVE IT IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR, and also don't delivery it i am just pretending they are not exist. 
6. Avoid sugary drinks and any snacks in a mall such as bubble drink, crapes, ice creams. NO, don't. when i arrive in a mall i usually get my meal first so after that when i am full i dont buy anymore unhealthy snacks
7. Body Awareness love the body you're in, be aware what's happening with your body. My tummy doesnt always flat but as soon as i look my self in the mirror and i dont like the way it change, I DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT i eat healthier, i browse on youtube"10 minutes workout for flat abs", "Yoga for flat abs" anything that works. if 10 minutes workout is still too long for you, search for 5 minutes workout and when you are already used to it you will improve to 10 minutes, 15 minutes and so on but YOU GOTTA START SOMEWHERE for your own self.
8. The Last One Eat healthier snacks on midnight when i usually watch TV series, i cut down on sweet snacks accompany such as candy, chocolate, and cakes. Instead, my midnight snack are fruit, veggies salad, yogurt, crispy seaweed, etc. for yogurt i've tried so many brands but in Indonesia there are 2 biggest brands that i want to talk about which is Heavenly Blush and Cimory.

This is an honest review i personally like how Heavenly Blush taste not to sour like Cimory #AsamnyaPas , but Cimory actually has bigger bottle. Cimory contain 250 ml while Heavenly Blush 200 ml. But when i compare these two brands nutritions Heavenly Blush totally win 6 point VS 2 point. this link is where i get the standart for healthy yogurt. Another plus point from me is Heavenly Blush packaging is more practical than Cimory. It come with straw so it wont ruin my lipstick, and the box is also easier to open than Cimory bottle seal.

Heavenly Blush has blackcurrant flavor while Cimory has  blueberry. Heavenly Blush taste supremely rich, mild and creamy yet low fat. it just the right amount of sour if i compare it with really sour Cimory.

Peach and lychee are both my favorite fruit if Cimory want to change their recipe to be less sour maybe i would like this one. overall i rate Heavenly Blush 4.5/5 stars while i give Cimory 3/5 stars. now it's time to continue my photoshoot, i'll see you again on next post, bye!
