If you are Experiencing Sugar Cravings, Try these 5 Tips to Fight them off.
Tip #1: Incorporate Protein/Fat into each meal. This helps control blood sugar levels. Make sure they are healthy sources of each.
Don’t skimp on the fat!
Tip #2: Take L-Glutamine. Take 1000-2000 mg every couple of hours as necessary. It often relieves sugar cravings as the brain uses it for fuel.
Tip #3: Take a “breathing break.” Find a quiet spot, get comfortable and sit for a few minutes and focus on your breath. After a few minutes of this, the craving will pass. This is also a great way to reduce stress!
Tip #4: Distract Yourself. Go for a walk, preferably in nature, read a book, or take a detox bath. Engage in an activity that brings you pleasure. Cravings usually last for 10-20 minutes max. If you can distract yourself with something else, it often passes. The more you do this, the easier it gets and the cravings get easier to deal with.
Tip #5: Drink Lots of Water. Sometimes drinking water, seltzer water, or herbal tea can help with the sugar cravings. Sometimes what we think is a food craving is really thirst.
