Discussing :: How to Stop Sugar Cravings

How to stop sugar cravings is frequently asked by many but only accomplished by few. If you have tried it too, you know how difficult it is. Sugar addiction is like addiction to alcohol or nicotine; your body becomes dependent on sugar, losing energy even when small amounts are removed from your diet. Another side effect is that your tolerance to sugar becomes higher, which means your body can have large amounts of sugar at a time. You can have sweet treats, but it is healthier if you control your intake. The first thing you need to know is important if you do get sugar cravings on a regular basis.

How to Stop Sugar Cravings

Ive heard almonds are a great way to curb sugar cravings. I also have a friend that carries a small bottle of pure vanilla in her hand bag, and whenever she gets cravings, she has a smell and apparently that works? I guess its all about tricking the mind if you dont have the mindpower

I found replacing my sugar(chocolate) craving with an apple helped - bad sugar for good sugar. (in theory)

I do the same. And encourage my step son to eat apples too. He's getting to the point where he'd rather an apple or orange over a biscuit or lollies. And he's only 3! So proud of him!

Thanks for this interesting article. I have just begun to lead a more healthy lifestyle with doing daily exercise and eating more fruit and veges which I am really enjoying. The hardest thing is the sugar cravings, but I know I will overcome it as I do feel mentally stronger with eating better. Thank you for the inspiration.

I recently decided that I wanted to stop drinking sugary drinks, because I realised that there's no nutritional value in them. I knew this already of course, but something in my brain just suddenly went 'aha!'. So every time I felt like a drink, I'd go and get a drink of water or a hot drink. That was about 6 months ago and I've managed to keep away from the sugary drinks. In fact, on the odd occasion that I decide to have one I don't feel very good afterwards, as it leaves a bad aftertaste in my mouth and I can feel the effects of the sugar in my system.

removing sugary treats from my home isnt a deterrant, I still get into the car and go to the dairy. But to ease the guilt i buy sugar free lollies

I loooooooooove sugar, my partner keeps making fun of me for it - quite often I will have a normal coke while he has a diet :) I think that I exercise enough to be allowed some sugar though.
