How To Stop Sugar Cravings, Start Today

First, you simply add in one complex-sugar serving to bolster your body's dietary needs. Next, you switch to one additional complex-sugar serving and eliminate one sugar snack item. Finally, you complete a trio of "anchor foods" that will coast you toward more nutritious and satisfying food options in your diet by eliminating one additional sugar-packed food for a healthier substitute.

There is a powerful and effective way to learn how to stop sugar cravings. It is a simple method for reducing the amount of high-content sugar you crave, by giving your body delicious but more nourishing foods. You will not need to go "cold turkey." In fact, to benefit from this process, you will find that "slow and steady wins the race."

You are likely similar to most people, grabbing sweet snacks and desserts throughout the day to maintain your cravings for sugar. You never seem to get the feeling that you have had enough. That is because high-sugar snacks do not usually carry much bulk, and they are metabolized very quickly. There is nothing left to maintain your body needs over the long haul. Your body needs bulk and long-burning sugars in order to turn off the "hunger" switch in your head.

Getting your body to a point where it is functioning well without sugar-bursts will lead to a reduction in your harmful cravings for fast sugar sources. Again, though, you do not want to stress your body by immediately eliminating sugar from your diet. That has never been a long-term strategy for success, and a more gradual reduction gives you time to adjust to changes as your natural healthy appetite regains control. Let your body work for you. Your digestive system wants just enough sugar to maintain a healthy balance. But, when it has been denied a source of complex sugars, it will start sending out S.O.S. signals.

Build up a trio of foods that will help block those signals each day: Week 1: Start your first week by adding one serving of a complex sugar food for just one of your meals each day. This can be a slice of bread, a bowl of oatmeal, or even a portion of mashed potato. Make sure it is a food you really enjoy; you can find all sorts of suggestions on the web by searching for "complex sugar food choices." Do not try to reduce your high-sugar foods this first week; you are simply establishing a complex-sugar "anchor food" that will begin to bolster your body's ability to shut down its cravings.

Week 2: Add one additional serving of complex sugar foods this week. It can be a food that is complementary to your first week's choice (a glass of juice with hash browns, for example, or juice for breakfast and baked potato at lunch). Or, you can choose a satisfying substitute for one of your snack servings each day. Choosing a complementary food will more deeply satisfy your body over the full length of the day, and more quickly reduce your cravings for sugar. But, if you need more time to adjust to the changes in your routine, it will be nearly as effective to look for a snack substitution at this point. Reduce one serving of high-sugar food. This should be fairly easy to do now, as you now have more than you need to balance out the loss of one snack.

Week 3: Replace one more complex sugar food, in order to complete the trio of "anchor foods" in your daily diet. You should now have two servings of complex-sugar foods during your meals, and one serving of a complex-sugar snack food available each day.

By the end of one month you will have replaced as much as 25% of your daily sugars with a complex and "full-filling" meal selections. You will definitely experience an energy balancing that will coast you toward overall healthier options in your diet.
