Simple tips to help reduce sugar cravings this holiday season by a licensed Naturopathic Doctor:
- Reducing those sugar cravings can be as simple as starting your day with 20-25 grams of a high-quality, healthy protein source. This can be from eggs, animal protein, or consider trying a healthy, hypoallergenic meal replacement protein drink. Some of the companies that make tasty, high quality protein drinks include: Metagenics (most of their UltraMeal Drinks), Designs for Health (try their PurePaleo) and Xymogen (Fit Food, Brain Sustain – referral code needed is: royals).
- 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…. and wait a few minutes before eating a tasty treat. This helps reduce your cravings and fills your stomach so you eat less, and improves hydration all at the same time.
