sugar-addiction-3This year I resolve myself to ignore my arch nemesis in culinary choices and pay much more attention to that angelic voice helping me dine sensibly.




Additional tips that can be REALLY effective at minimizing those cravings during the holidays:

  • Start your day with 20-25 grams of a high-quality protein source.  A GREAT way to do this is by drinking a GREAT meal replacement/protein drink/medical food from on of the great companies out there:  Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Orthomolecular Products, Thorne Research, etc.
  • Try taking 200mcg of chromium 1-3x/day.  This important mineral has a lot of positive impact on blood sugar and insulin thus can be important in helping to control those carbohydrate and “sugary food” cravings.
  • If the cravings are REALLY strong – try immediately drinking two BIG glasses of water and go find a healthy protein source and take a few bites of this.  This helps fill you up, stops cravings, and improves hydration.
