Solenn Heussaff is already used to not having too much sugar in her diet, but every once in a while, she does treat herself to a piece of cake.

Cooking at home has always been Solenn's way to maintain a healthy lifestyle, so when it comes to making home-cooked meals, she suggests sugar as the number one thing to avoid.

"Sugar is the biggest thing, so no drinks with too much sugar.
