Many people literally feel like they are addicted to sugar. They have no control over any of the too many rages that arise. Is it possible to free yourself from this desire without having the impression of continually depriving yourselfnt?
TO END THESE SUGAR RAGES!
If the process requires some effort and the establishment of certain eating habits, it is quite possible to restore a healthy relationship with this type of food! Here are some tips to get there:
Eat every 3 hours
Eating regularly throughout the day keeps blood sugar levels more stable. But how can blood sugar influence our craving for sweet foods? In fact, the lower the blood sugar, the higher the level of hunger. And of course, when hunger is too great, it is more difficult to make sensible food choices, both in terms of quality and quantity consumed. Sugar cravings are therefore often linked to irregular food intake during the day and long periods without eating. On the menu: 3 meals and 2 to 3 snacks every day!!
Fiber and protein for satiety!
Dietary fiber is found in whole grains such as wheat, oats, pot barley, quinoa, brown rice and millet. Vegetables and fruits whose peel can be eaten also contribute to the daily fiber intake. Legumes, nuts, chia and flax seeds are also important sources.
Proteins, on the other hand, are consumed through meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs and vegetable proteins such as legumes and tofu. Dairy products and alternatives such as milk, soy beverage, yogurt and cheese also help meet protein needs. Consider including these two nutrients with every meal and every snack for healthy appetite management!
We say no to sweeteners!
Whether natural, like stevia, or artificial, like aspartame or acesulfame-potassium, sweeteners do not help prevent or control sugar cravings. While they may be an option for people with diabetes to consider, studies show that sweeteners fuel the craving for sweet foods.
We desaturate our taste buds!s!
On a daily basis, we try to limit added sugars in our food choices. The goal is not to eliminate all sources of added sugars, but to favor the natural version of yogurts or commercial oatmeal and to sweeten them yourself. A little honey or maple syrup will do the trick! We also avoid sugary liquids such as juice, soft drinks or flavored coffees. We hydrate rather with water, tea or herbal teas.
