Here are a few of the ways I was able to reduce sugar in my children's diets:
- We got them used to drinking water only, in every meal. Juices and sodas became treats reserved for the occasional celebration or birthday party.
- We got them used to loving bacon and perceive it as a treat.
- Our hot dog nights don’t have buns – just sausages (I began that because they were tossing the buns!). I offer them my homemade keto catchup, which is sugar-free.
I'm happy to share that I kept the weight off for over a year (discounting a normal the 5lbs fluctuation). But I stuck with Keto and low carb eating. To this day, people ask me when I'm going to eat bread again. I do Keto one day at a time.
It wasn’t easy to be set in the Keto lifestyle. Although I saw the benefits right away (weight loss, increased energy and clarity of mind), I got some push back, mainly from one of people I love the most: my husband.
