5 tips to kick those sugar cravings to the curb

If you find yourself reaching for too many sugary treats during the day or after dinner I have some tips to share with you on how to kick these cravings to the curb.

I know I often talk about sugar (the refined white kind) but it really is one of the most addictive substances out there and it wrecks havoc on our body and mind!

When you're able to reduce sugar from the diet your quality of life improves dramatically - you're no longer controlled by this highly addictive substance, you feel better mentally, it aids in weight loss and improved health overall.

Below are 5 tips to help kick those sugar cravings to the curb once and for all:

1. Eat consistently throughout the day

When you eat consistently throughout the day you're giving yourself enough energy to sustain yourself throughout the day.

2. Have a serve of protein with every meal and at least one snack

Increasing your protein intake stabilises your sugar levels as well as keeps you fuller for longer.

3. Increase your intake of veggies to 5 serves a day

Vegetables (colourful, leafy green & non-starchy) provide the body with much needed nutrients to function optimally and when we lack in these nutrients we often crave sugar.

4. Swop out those refined sugary treats for healthier more nutrient dense treats

The more refined sugar products you eat or drink the more you'll crave sugar (it's a never ending cycle) so start swopping these out for healthier and more nutrient dense treats instead.


5. Increase your water intake to at least 2L per day

Sweet cravings can be a sign of dehydration. So drink a large glass of water, wait 5 minutes and then see if you still have the craving.

Give one or all of these tips a go this week, you'll be surprised at how a few simple changes can make a big difference to curbing sugar cravings for good!
