Help....I want to Crave less Sugar

Yes I believe I am a sugar addict, I crave it daily and give in to that craving constantly. I believe I can kick this habit, because we can do anything when we put our minds to it, the trick for me will be making myself believe that I want to. Over the last few years, I have to say that I have worked hard at moderation, this has made a huge difference and giving up daily fizzy drinks (Soda), especially coke, has helped greatly… But I do love a sweet treat; lollies, cakes and biscuits are my weakness and unfortunately for me my daughter is turning into quite the little baker! Her chocolate brownies are to die for. I guess I’m just going to have to work a little harder….one way or the other!

Here are 7 tips I have found, that help me to crave less sugar. I use them to help me stop sabotaging my best training efforts and killing my results. It's a work in progress!

  4. Try Dark Chocolate
  5. Stick With Fruit
  6. Change Your Palate
