How do you recommend using the Better Nutrition No Added Sugar Menu?

Invite your client to follow the Better Nutrition No Added Sugar Menu written as-is, or suggest that they use it as a guide. Allow them to see how to enjoy their favorites without the added sugar and to share their experiences and progress with you. After a few days, they’ll likely be surprised by how sweet some of their former favorites now taste!

What if my clients experience sweet cravings? 

Depending on your client’s health goals, he/she may be able to include some added sugar. The World Health Organization recommends healthy adults limit their added sugar to 6 teaspoons daily, where one teaspoon is about 4 grams of sugar, and 16 calories. Use the Better Nutrition Added Sugar Evaluation to see what amount is better for your client, right now, based on health goals. That said, if it is necessary that your client does not consume any added sugar, he/she can enjoy the sweet offerings in the Better Nutrition No Sugar Added Menu like baked fruit and starchy vegetables, as well as foods made with flavorful spices.

What about supplements?

You can recommend better supplements for your client to prevent nutrition gaps and replenish nutrient stores. But if the supplements contain added sugar, you need to account for that, since it is likely that your client consumes the supplement daily.
