6 ways you can stop craving unhealthy, sugary foods


6 ways you can stop craving unhealthy, sugary foods.

Here 6 ways you can stop craving unhealthy, sugary foods.

1. Increase your healthy fat intake (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated). This will leave you feeling more satiated so you aren’t mistaking cravings for real hunger.

2. The less you eat of them, the less you will crave. Sugar is a simple carbohydrate that will spike your blood glucose levels, and when they plummet back down, it will leave you craving more.

3. Try intermittent fasting. This works the same as above. As you are not eating for a period of time, your blood glucose levels will level out and therefore prevent cravings.

4. Don't buy them. If you don’t have any snacks in your cupboard, it means you will have to take a trip to the shop, which requires a lot more effort and gives you time to talk yourself out of it.

5. Find replacements. Every time you are craving your favorite snack, have a piece of dark chocolate (at least 80% cocoa). You will start to enjoy the healthier alternatives.

6. Make sure you are hydrated. Dehydration can lead to your body thinking it is hungry when really it is just thirsty. Your urine should be a pale yellow color.
