Snaccident - Tips on curbing sugar cravings
Scientists can show that eating too much sugar raises your risk of gaining weight and the associated health problems. You are more likely to suffer diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and other health conditions when you indulge your sweet tooth too often. The main reason we want sugar is for energy but often we are dehydrated when we have a sugar craving… so drink plenty of water. Once you reduce the sugar in your diet everything tastes sweeter and your cravings are satisfied with a natural sugar treat such as fresh fruit. Don’t be too hard on yourself; we are programmed to love sugar and spice and all things nice so take it easy and try cutting it down slowly. Swap your afternoon cookie for a savoury snack and cut out sugary drinks. Curb your cravings by swapping your sweet treats for other indulgences, such as a hot bubble bath, herbal tea, a spot of retail therapy to show off that new sugar free body or try the sugar free recipe below using raw cacao to make a choc’ alternative!
