Up your Glutamine level
Glutamine is an amino acid that provides energy in the brain and helps build and maintain muscle. While it is most commonly used by body-builders to help reduce muscle deterioration during and post-workout, glutamine may also help reduce cravings for sugar. This is due to glutamine's stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels - ie. when blood sugar levels are low, glutamine suppresses insulin to prevent a further decline. It also stimulates the release of glycogen to help increase blood sugar to normal levels. Glutamine is found in protein-rich foods such as fish, chicken, beans, and dairy and is also present in vegetables such as raw parsley, spinach and cabbage.
