Sugar Craving

Tips about how to beat sugar craving


Here is some tips to help you beat your sugar craving, the number one enemy of diabetic

1. Stick to unprocessed food.

Instead of eating processed corn from a can, eat corn on the cob. Choose wholemeal bread instead of white bread. Instead of processed fruit juices, make your own fruit juice without sugar.

2. Eat protein with breakfast.

You are also advised to eat protein with each meal and especially during breakfast as it keeps your blood sugar stable throughout the day.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your first meal must create blood sugar stability that will carry you to the next meal without sugar cravings.

3. Read labels!

Itís incredible how many things we put into our mouths without the slightest idea what is in them. The longer the list of ingredients, the more likely sugar is going to be included on that list. You might be surprised to find that drinks which have the words ďless sugarĒ on the packet still contain a large amount of sugar.


4. Donít starve yourself in order to reward your restraint with a doughnut.

This is bad for your body and you wonít lose weight. Your body will just go into starvation mode, storing all your calories as fat. So that slice of cheesecake or that chocolate bar you eat after a long fast is going to be stored as fat.

5. Brown is beautiful: brown rice, wheat bread, brown cereals, etc ...

Brown foods which contain less starch give your body the positive effects of carbohydrates without unbalancing your blood sugar and creating cravings.

6. Be active and keep busy.

Many of us snack when we are bored and inactive. Go for a run or have a chat with your friend. Anything to keep your hands away from the fridge.

7. Drink water constantly.

The more water you drink, the more your body will be fooled into thinking it is not hungry. Plus, there is no sugar in water.

8. Donít get down on yourself if you slip and eat a dessert every once in a while.

Itís okay to reward yourself, just donít start the addiction all over again. There are always healthier options for desserts. Eat fruit yoghurt instead of ice-cream.

9. Donít focus on weight loss.

Weight loss is usually a natural consequence of giving up sugar, donít make it your focus. Channel your energy towards one goal at a time and focus on getting sugar-free. When youíve achieved that, work on losing the excess weight.

10. Create a supportive environment.

Ask your family to hide the sweet foods in the house: ice-cream, biscuits and chocolate, so that you wouldnít seek them out and eat them. Avoid certain aisles in the grocery store and abstain from any baking.
