We’re going straight to the point here.
We live in a country where we are told that sugar addiction is rampant. In fact, we’re told that more people are experiencing it than not.
I don’t think we have a sugar addiction issue. I think we have forgotten how to feed ourselves. We are the only animals on the planet that have completely forgotten how. I think our poor eating habits are fueling this so called addiction and the diet industry is lining it’s pockets because of it!
There are all kinds of supplements and tricks available for purchase to help with this.
From tongue numbing agents to pills and everything in between, there’s no shortage of companies trying to make money off of the addiction that most people fail to conquer.
So, how do you do it you may ask?
Here’s the real answer…
Go back to the boring eat better and exercise more.
Ouch. Not what you wanted to hear – I know.
But the truth is that we’re adults, and we can choose what we eat, when we eat and how much we move. We always have a choice – in everything that we do.
And the magic about not giving into sugar cravings is that they almost always pass. The magic isn’t in the pills or powders but in the dietary changes and increased movement that typically accompanies them.
With time and better habits, cravings dissipate dramatically.
Most people simply don’t make it long enough to feel it.
To make this a little easier on you, I have a challenge for you.
The next time you feel a sugar craving coming on, give yourself 20 minutes. Go for a walk. Drink a glass of water. Check in on what you’ve eaten already today (Have you eaten today? What have you eaten? Processed or one ingredient foods?). If after 20 minutes you still want the sweet thing, let yourself have it.
I can almost guarantee the craving will pass if you give it the chance.
Give it a shot and let me know how it works!
