How to eliminate sugar cravings…
According to an Australian nutritionist, reigning in our sugar cravings isn’t about willpower alone. There are 8 steps they recommend we take to get off the sugar craving roller coaster. Taking magnesium before bed is one step. We should also avoid eating fruits in the afternoon instead be sure to have a 3pm snack that has protein and good fats.
8 ways to beat sugar cravings
Add fiber to your meals-This is what your body is really craving. Fiber used to be only available in nuts and fruit (the original sweet stuff)
Don't eat fruit in the afternoon-at breakfast is great.
Eat regular meals every day and two healthy snacks
Snacks should be protein and good fats-Yogurt and nuts with cinnamon or humus and veggies
Incorporate apple cider vinegar-it helps keep blood sugar levels even.
Add lemon juice to your meals-it helps keep blood sugar levels even.
Take magnesium before bedtime-Keeps the cravings in check while you sleep.
Practice stress management. Stress creates cravings for comfort that we misinterpret as the need for junk food.
