Health Tip: Cut Down on Sugar
Watch how much you eat and drink

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Too much sugar in your diet can lead to a host of health problems, from rotting your teeth to bulging your waistline.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how to cut down on sugar:

  • Avoid baked goodies, candy and other sweets.
  • Stick to heart-healthy meals and snacks, focusing on whole grains, lean proteins, fruits and vegetables.
  • Drink water instead of sugary beverages.
  • Avoid processed foods, which tend to be high in sugar, salt and fat.
  • Look for recipes that use less sugar, or use unsweetened applesauce or sugar substitutes.
