How to Control Sugar Cravings

New Year’s resolutions have become almost cliché but just in case you are serious about getting your sugar under control, here are some help. Did you know that eating sugar and lots of salt can desensitize the tongue so you can’t even taste other food.  No wonder you don’t reach for a vegetable or fruit.  You can’t taste it!

First step: Diet.  Come on you can’t out run a bad diet.  Take a break from high carb foods and feed your cells.  This means balance, nutritious meals with minimal processing and no added sugar.

Second Step:  Get moving!  All you need is two and one-half hours per week to help control blood sugar.  Low impact exercise can be walking, gardening, or any activity if you move!

Third Step – this is where I want you to take a careful holistic look at your nutrients.  There are three supplements that are a foundation  for extra support.

Most everyone agrees that omega-3 fatty acids combat the inflammation that is one of the main drivers of metabolic syndrome.  Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that include high blood sugar, high blood pressure, inflammation high cholesterol and excess fat around the waist.

Vitamin D is vitally important and helps tame the inflammation.  Many studies reveal that a Vitamin D deficiency is directly linked to a higher risk of type 2 diabetes.

Then there is the trace mineral chromium that helps regulate blood sugar and improves how the cells use insulin.  Its also great for food cravings.  After all, if your cells don’t burn sugar you wear it.

But you say I get such strong cravings, I got to have it!  Let me tell you there is help.  Sugar addiction is very powerful and it effects your gut, mood, sinus, chronic congestion and hormones so don’t let it rule you.

If you want to know my favorite supplements for cravings let me know in the comments and I will send you a list of the most powerful and fast support.

 

P.S.    Love to get your comments or share with a friend!

    Hey Dr. Leesa, I would love a list of your favorite supplements for cravings! This is for my mom who craves sweets like crazy but she knows the harm that these cravings can cause but can’t seem to get the cravings under control. She isn’t an ounce overweight so not so much that she worried about it in that sense, she however has read how bad it is for the brain. Any info you can provide me with would be much appreciated & thank you in advance for your help.

    Sincerely,
    Ashley
