5 Tips to Tame Sugar Cravings
#1: Incorporate Protein/Fat into each meal. This helps control blood sugar levels. Make sure they are healthy sources of each.
#2: Take L-Glutamine. Take 1000-2000 mg every couple of hours as necessary. It often relieves sugar cravings as the brain uses it for fuel.
#3: Take a “breathing break.” Find a quiet spot, get comfortable and sit for a few minutes and focus o
n your breath. After a few minutes of this, the craving will pass. This is also a great way to reduce stress!
#4: Distract Yourself. Go for a walk, preferably in nature, read a book, or take a detox bath. Engage in an activity that brings you pleasure. Cravings usually last for 10-20 minutes max. If you can distract yourself with something else, it often passes. The more you do this, the easier it gets and the cravings get easier to deal with.
#5: Drink Lots of Water. Sometimes drinking water, seltzer water, or herbal tea can help with the sugar cravings. Sometimes what we think is a food craving is really thirst.
