Overcoming Your Sugar Addiction

sugar-addictionNow that you better understand food cravings and how they can be harmful, let’s get into a more detailed and nefarious topic: Sugar. It’s found in a vast amount of foods and drinks; from easily recognizable items such as candy bars and soft drinks to seemingly healthy foods like power bars and granola. Eliminating it from your diet will take a bit of detective work and diligence.

Overcoming your sugar cravings:

  • Eat a little bit of a sugary food, such as a fun-size candy bar. Enjoying a small amount of what you love help s you from feeling denied.
  • Try combining the food your craving with a healthy one. Dip a banana in melted chocolate for example. Alternatively, mix almonds with bits of a chocolate bar.
  • Cut out all simple sugar cold turkey. It may take 48 to 72 hours before the cravings start to diminish, but over time, your craving for the taste of sugar will become satisfied with alternatives.
  • Chew gum to avoid giving into a sugar craving.
  • Eat more fruit and nuts. Fruit is naturally sweet and you get the healthy fiber and nutrients from them.
  • Go for a walk. When sugar cravings hit get up and do something to change the scenery to take your mind off the craving.\
  • Be sure you are eating regularly. Often a sugar craving comes on when our blood sugar becomes unstable. Waiting longer than 5 hours between meals sets you up for sugar cravings. Try to eat a protein, fiber-rich meal every three to five hours.
