Kick Sugar Cravings!

Addicted to the sweet stuff? Kick sugar cravings aside with our top 10 tips! 🍬

1. Practice healthy habits such as hot lemon water in the morning to cleanse the liver and remove waste from the intestines. 🍋

2. Don’t make up for over eating at night by not eating in the morning, it will only encourage a late afternoon sweets binge. Keep healthy snacks on you at all times. 🍓

3. Exercise! Our dopamine receptors love sugar, therefore working out encourages dopamine production in the body. This typically leads our body to crave healthier foods after a sweat sesh. 🏋🏼‍♀️

4. Getting enough sleep will keep the hunger hormone (ghrelin) at bay! Sleep in a dark, cool room to boost the sleep hormone, melatonin, for a more restful night. 💤

5. Avoid artificial sweeteners; they create a surge in insulin which leads to stronger sugar cravings. Opt for replacing artificial sweeteners with Stevia, cinnamon, or honey. 🍯

6. Turn to the dark side. Dark chocolate will curb sugar cravings and increase serotonin, as well as give the body a boost of antioxidants and caffeine. 🍫

7. Stick to whole, unprocessed foods and limit simple carbohydrates, which are sugar in disguise. 🍲

8. Try eating fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kefir. These foods contribute to good gut bacteria, reducing the chance your sugar cravings are from an imbalance of yeast in the body. 

9. Incorporate acidic foods such as tomato sauce, which reduce blood sugar spikes. 🍅

10. Feel satisfied after meals by combining protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates. This balanced combination helps release the PPY hormone, which signals that you are full and halts any cravings. 🥑
