Ok, so let’s review the 3 things to do:
1. How to Curb Your Sugar Cravings – Eat Often
Eating every 2-3 hours will keep your blood sugar stable throughout the day. When you skip a meal or forget to eat, your blood sugar decreases too low and your body starts to go into starvation mode because it doesn’t know when your next meal will be. This slows down your metabolize and then causes you to crave sugar.
So let’s kick it up a knotch…If you can eat every 2-3 hours for 5 weeks your metabolism will be on fire and you will burn burning fat without even realizing it all day long! Who doesn’t want that? I know I sure do! So by eating often you don’t only curb sugar craving but you also burn more calories.
2. How to Curb Your Sugar Cravings – Eat Whole Foods
By eating whole foods, you get fiber, vitamins, minerals, and feel satisfied from chewing your food. Shakes and bars are very convenient however you will have a much better time maintaining your results if you learn to eat whole foods. What is a whole food? Something that you can pick off a tree or plant or something you can kill. These foods do not come in a box, can, bag, or bottle. Chose whole foods and you will see that you don’t have as many sugar cravings.
Here is an example of a whole food lunch…
