Sugar is delicious, tempting, and even comforting. But it’s also deadly for your health, and your mind. Not only does it cause the obvious problems like tooth decay, but sugar is also linked to impaired brain function, depression and anxiety, heart disease and gain weight. And If you’re craving sugar, here are 12 ways to stop those cravings.
1.Eat a nutritious breakfast. Always start your day with fruit 4 pieces or more. Fruit is nutritious and will satisfy your nutritional needs. Getting a good breakfast in will help prevent and curb sugar cravings later in the day.
2.Have a piece of fruit. If you give in to your cravings, have a piece of fruit, it should satisfy a sweet craving and is much healthier.
3.Don’t skip meals When you miss regular meals; you create a starving situation in your body and you will eat anything to bring your blood sugar level back to normal and you know what that means.
4.Grab some gum. If you want to avoid giving in to a sugar craving completely, try chewing a stick of gum, Research has shown that chewing gum can reduce food cravings.
5.Get up and go. When a sugar craving hits, walk away. Take a walk around the block or do something to change the scenery, to take your mind off the food you’re craving.
6.Talk to a friend. Call/go meet someone who understands what you’re going through. Explain that you’re going through a craving and ask for a few words of encouragement.
7.Water with Lemon This is a great substitute for a candy craving. Not only is lemon great for your skin and immune system, but the acidity can help ease your sugar cravings.
8.Tea – Tea is a great substitute for sugary drinks. Hot or iced, tea can fill your craving for something a bit sweet, while hydrating you with the antioxidants and nutrients you need.
9.Take a multivitamin. Sometimes cravings can simply mean you’re missing something in your diet. Taking a multivitamin everyday will ensure that you’re nutritionally covered!
10.Get in the habit of reading ingredient labels. Many foods that you wouldn’t expect to have sugar in them may actually contain a significant amount. Be sure to always check food labels for the presence of sugar under one of its many names.
11.Lower it gradually. Instead of cutting sugar out completely, lower your intakes slowly. If you usually eat sweets after lunch and dinner, start by taking it down to one meal a day.
12.Don’t starve yourself and try to prevent yourself from becoming too hungry between meals.
