Ways You Can Stop Your Sugar Craving

Update Date: Nov 12, 2014 12:18 PM EST

Sweet delights naturally increase temptation towards sweets. One way is to run away from satiating the sugar craving. However, the other recommended way is to curb it once a while. 

Here're some expert-recommended tips on reducing the sugar craving. 

Denial is not always an answer

If you are in a habit of denying yourself sweet foods, you will end up having more sugar cravings and increased bingeing. According to experts, a little of the sweet stuff is fine in moderation and a small serving of your favorite pudding can satisfy a sweet tooth. 

Get enough sleep

Experts say when we are exhausted, we often use sugar. Making sure that you get a sound sleep can also put a check on your sugar consumption. 

Get spicy

Try flavoring your foods and drinks with vanilla or spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon and cardamom. This is another innovative way to stop your sugar craving and chances are that you may start liking this change more than ever.

Take care of nutrient deficiencies

According to experts, nutrient deficiencies can make craving worse and the fewer nutrient deficiencies, the fewer craving.  Studies have shown that certain nutrients seem to improve blood sugar control including chromium, vitamin B3 and magnesium.
