How to Eliminate Sugar Cravings

Can sugar cravings really be eliminated?

Sounds too good to be true, huh…

Yes! Sugar craving can definitely be eliminated.

Here are some tips to get you started to eliminating your sugar cravings.

Eat more vegetables and whole grains!  I know, I know, I sound like a broken record…you’ve heard it all before…eat more healthy foods.  It’s not your fault you are not doing it because nutrition information is soooo confusing.

Sugar can do a lot of bad things to your body….including feeding into the growth of cancer cellyikes!!  When you eat more vegetables and whole grains, your body will not want sugar – it will crave more vegetables and whole grains….really!

Some suggestions below on what to do at each meal so that your cravings for sugar will disappear on their own.  Eat as much of the “good for you foods” first – fill your belly up with bulky veggies, whole grains (brown rice, beans, quinoa, etc.), and a SMALL portion of animal protein, if desired.  Then, if you still really want a cookie (or some other sugary item), you will eat 1 instead of 5.  Over time, you will not want any cookies and the sweetest thing you will crave is fruit….I promise.

Breakfast

  • 5 minute Old Fashioned Oatmeal, sweetened with minimal amount of maple syrup/honey, add raisins/craisins and nuts.
  • Kale Green Smoothies (recipe available in the Free Report you received 3 weeks ago).  If you need the free report again, please go to the home page of my website and enter your name and e-mail address.

Snack:

  • Healthy trail mix (nuts/raisins) – watch the portion size – measure out into snack size baggies.  Keep them everywhere – in office, car, briefcase, lunchbox, etc.  Emergency healthy food on the go.

Lunch:

  • Big salad or big plate of veggies, 1/2 avocado, beans (chickpeas, red beans, black beans, etc.) with small portion of animal protein.
  • Stay away form eating sandwiches with processed luncheon meats (full of chemicals) – it will feel o.k. going down but later on you won’t feel that great you ate it.  If you really want turkey or chicken, go for the real turkey or chicken – not the deli meat.
  • Fruit for dessert.
  • (If you want to sneak in a couple of potato chips…go ahead…just have 3-4 chips, not the whole bag.)

Dinner:

  • Always have a big plate of veggies as your “main entree” and a “side dish” portion of animal protein.
  • Fruit again for dessert.

Here’s an example of a dinner with foods that will eliminate sugar cravings:

tomato-avocado-chix salad

  • red, yellow, green tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 chicken breast
  • 1 fig
  • items from the antipasto bar at Whole Foods – feta cheese, olives, marinated mushrooms & onions

Notice that the plate is full of veggies, with a sprinkling of the “fattier” items from the antipasto bar (including cheese).  No need to deny yourself of anything as long as the majority of the plate has “good for you” foods.

Eating healthy foods first means that you will not want as much of the “bad” foods.  If you keep eating this way, I guarantee that you will lose your cravings for sugar.
