The Sugar Craving Explained

The Sugar Craving Explained

  • We crave sugar for a variety of reasons, from hormones to habits to the psychological impact of simply seeing a decadent donut or a drizzle of caramel
  • The preference for sweet-tasting foods is innate.
  • That means sugar cravings are drilled into our bodies at an early age.
  • Because humans enjoy sweets, it is difficult to cut them out entirely and doing so can sometimes lead to feelings of deprivation.

Be Aware Of Your Craving

Be Aware Of Your Craving

Cravings are intense, urgent, or abnormal desire or longing.

However, just because you're having a craving or want something sweet doesn't mean you have to eat sugar - or even pop a sugar replacement, such as a piece of fruit - on impulse.

Buy yourself some time.

Drink a glass of water, take five deep breaths, or go for a short walk. If you are truly hungry, it's okay to reach for a snack.

Pay Attention to Patterns

Pay Attention to Patterns

  • If you notice a sugar craving at 3 p.m. daily without fail, add a protein-filled snack at this time to power through the day.
  • Identify your favourite foods
  • Pick two go-to breakfasts, 2-3 lunches, and 2-4 dinners and have those ingredients on hand so you can stay consistent.
  • Spice things up with spices that don't contain added sugar, such as cinnamon and red pepper.
