Here are a few Protein Boost Diet tips to curb your sugar cravings and break sugar addiction:
- Try to eliminate processed sugary foods and replace them with fruit – They contain different types of sugars. Minimize consumption of all fruits high in fructose (cherries, oranges, grapes, bananas, dates, etc…) and stick to those lowest in sugar (berries, melon, papaya, etc…). Fruit should be avoided at dinner time to keep insulin levels low at night.
- Engage in a relaxation technique for stress management – stress can increase the desire to consume comfort foods high in sugar and fat. As many as 80% of people admit to eating more foods that contain sweets when they are stressed! Yoga and tai-chi are great ways to decrease stress and improve overall health. Practicing these techniques a few days a week will help you significantly reduce stress and inflammation in your body.
- High fructose corn syrup, commonly used to sweeten beverages, has been linked to increased belly fat and weight gain. Avoid these HFCS beverages by settling for better alternatives such as water, natural juices, or unsweetened tea. These will help break any addiction to sweetened beverages.
- Take a natural supplement that helps suppress nighttime food cravings, such as Body Slim Mediterranean, which contains Relora, Garcinia Cambogia, Raspberry ketones, and 7 other ingredients that speed up metabolism while decreasing appetite and food cravings.
