Can I banish cravings?

Can I banish cravings?  Yes you can. Many people suffer from food cravings and often this is referred to as sugar cravings.  However, it is not just the obvious sugar in fizzy drinks, cake and sweets that you need to be aware of.  Sugar is in all of our processed foods and we are all too often unaware of it. 

For example granola bars and fruit and fibre bars are glued together with sugar syrup. Shop bought baked beans, soups, lasagnes, low fat yoghurts, breads and many other items you put in your weekly shopping trolley are choc full of sugar. 

To banish cravings you must first balance your blood sugar, you do this by:

    Eating real foods such as some fruits, vegetables, salads, fish, meat, some dairy products and eggs

    Eating regularly to avoid a dip in your blood sugar

    Not going too long between meals

    Eating plenty of real foods

    Avoiding processed foods

Fending off food cravings can be a full time job and means that you have food constantly on your mind.  We have an informative article 'Are You a Hormone-Driven Carbohydrate Monstar?' which aims to shed light on how your food affects your cravings - more here.

A recent study performed with rats suggests that Oreos may be as addictive as cocaine - More here.
