Beating Sugar Addiction

Beating Sugar Addiction

If you regularly crave sweet things or you find it impossible to stop after just one biscuit or one piece of chocolate, you may have a case of sugar addiction. Your drive to eat sweet things is disrupting your blood sugar levels, diet and then ultimately your weight. Here are seven simple tips to help you beat that sugar addiction:

  • Stick to foods that are closest to their original form. The closer a food is to its original form, the less processed sugar it will contain
  • Eat protein for breakfast. It 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
  • Eat protein with every meal. Eating protein with each meal prepares your body for the increase of serotonin production and keeps your blood sugar stable throughout the day
  • Read Labels! It is amazing how many things we put into our mouths without the slightest idea of what is in them. The longer the list of ingredients, the more likely sugar is going to be included on that list
  • Do not starve yourself in order to reward yourself with a donut or chocolate. Your body goes into starvation mode, so that treat you eat after a seven hour fast turns straight to fat
  • Keep a journal of what you eat; you will be shocked by the amount of sugar-filled snacks in your diet
  • Drink water constantly, this assists the Human Growth Hormone to metabolise fat
