Curbing your sugar cravings may be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be a self-depriving experience. The following are simple tips that will help you control your cravings once and for all:
Fat and protein help slow the digestion of carbs in addition to sending our brain a hormonal message telling you to stop eating. Healthy fats like coconut oil, avocado, olives, nuts and seeds ward off cravings and keep you full. Quality protein like meat, fish and eggs support the production of brain chemicals, keeping cravings at bay.
support your gut, which is where your brain chemicals are made. The gut-brain connection is proven and essential for eliminating sugar cravings, so this step CANNOT be overlooked. When you fail to address these biochemical factors, you’re setting yourself up for cravings. Generally, for those who are sugar sensitive, we recommend two to three capsules of a high quality probiotic
Fats help you feel full, reducing the likelihood you will reach for the sweets. Not all fats, however, are created equal. A good fat source that I recommend is coconut oil, as it’s a medium chain triglyceride that the body uses right away for energy, rather than storing it as fat. A simple tablespoon or two of coconut oil will leave you feeling full and energized. If the thought of it on its own doesn’t make you salivate, Try this Chocolate Energy Nut Bombs
This mineral is used to help the body balance blood sugar. Studies have shown that many patients found it also helped lower sugar cravings. The effective dosage range is 600-1,000 mcg a day, in divided doses, with meals. Chromium is generally well tolerated, but please use caution if you have a history of hypoglycemia or take insulin. Chromium may lower blood sugar, so diabetics who require insulin should monitor their blood sugar closely. ORDER HERE
Eliminate artificial sweeteners.
Although artificial sweeteners are calorie-free, a Yale study has shown that certain sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose can actually increase your sugar cravings. Consuming these zero calorie sweeteners reduces the brain’s dopamine levels, leaving the body feeling an intense craving for sugar, which will increase brain dopamine. Avoid this vicious cycle altogether and stay away from artificial sweeteners.
