Health tip: How not to have too much sugar in your body and have good BMI

1) Remember the healthy plate by NHB

2) Eat less carb

We should eat less processed carbs like white rice, noodles and anything that is made from flour.

Do not eat the whole big bowl of rice. Eat the smaller bowl instead. Your stomach will then have space for some sweet desserts.

Do not eat the whole bowl of mee. Use the smaller bowl instead.

3) Eat more good fats. The good fats will replace the bad fats and get burnt faster.

4) Eat more food with protein. It will replace carbs in your body to be used as energy, as well as repair your damaged cells.

To save time, one can eat more food that has both good fats and full of protein. Example: Nuts (peanuts, almonds, walnuts, etc), beans (soy), seeds (sunflower, chia seeds, etc), fish (salmon, cod, etc), dairy (egg, cheese, etc).

5) With less carbs in your body, you do not have to bother about counting calories. Morever, the insulin will not cause blood sugar spikes anymore.

6) Use natural sweeteners instead of processed sugar

Use natural sweeteners like raw honey (better than clear ones as it is processed less and hence has more nutrients), stevia leaves, maple syrup or sugar, coconut sugar, molasses (sugarcane).
