When your body is craving sugar it may be telling you it wants something sweet. This doesn't mean we should go to the store and buy a pack of sour patch kids and ice cream. Resisting the temptations of sugary foods can be a very hard thing to do but this article will not only help you resist them, but it will show you how to make the best of your cravings by substituting the bad sugary foods with healthy high nutrient, whole foods.
Fruit can help you to satisfy the sugar cravings, your body needs something sweet and it is better to eat fruit instead of that tempting candy bar. Fruit is a naturally sweet and healthy alternative to those junk-food snacks. The great thing is that you can eat a lot of fruit and not be consuming unhealthy calories - fruit is full of nutrients and fiber and will help to nourish your body. So instead of eating candy, cut up some fruit to eat. The sweeter the fruit the easier it will be to kick the sugar craving. Here are some great fruits that are very sweet to choose from:
When these sugar cravings come along and you are really wanting to go get an ice cream shake I suggest you make a healthy fruit smoothie instead. Smoothies are delicious, easy to make, and much healthier than shakes are. Simply take any fruit you want, put it in your blender, as some ice, and your good to go! If you want a creamy shake, add in some coconut milk. Fruit smoothies are creamy and delicious - they are fantastic alternatives to high calorie, sugar loaded shakes.
Eating a little sugar every now and then is okay, just don't over do it. Eating processed foods that are high in sugar and calories have been know to cause obesity, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Avoiding these foods is crucial to your health.
Replacing processed sugary foods with healthier alternatives is so much better for your body. The next time you feel the need to run to the store to pick up some candy, cookies, or ice cream try to resist the urge and use one of the helpful tips mentioned in this article instead. Resist the urge to stop in the candy aisle and head straight to the fruit and vegetables aisle... you won't regret the decision.
