Sugar is addictive; there's no denying that. It can really feel like you NEED to get that sugar fix if your energy is feeling low but you can train your mind to believe otherwise. Kicking the sugar habit can be one of the best things you can do for your health!
Sugar cravings are a problem for the majority of us. You could be addicted to sugar without even realising. It can be added to almost anything, even if you can't actually taste it. Always make sure you check the back of the packaging of the foods you are purchasing!
Excess sugar can really interfere with your hormones, mood, increased fatigue and can cause increased weight gain.
Tips to reduce sugar cravings:
Drink Herbal Teas such as chamomile, peppermint, liquorice, nettle.
Use the natural sweetener Stevia as a sugar replacement.
Add Cinnamon to your meals instead of sugar.
Ditch the fruit juice! The lack fibre in fruit juice means an immediate sugar spike and sugar rush!
Increase Healthy Fat intake such as olive oil, nuts and seeds, fatty fish.
