Sugar cravings are REAL during prep! Am I right?!? Be sure to tune in as @glamgirlbikini coaches @chrisnicole_ifbbpro and @amyehinger talk all things sugar sabotage and how to prevent it. Here's a 4 step plan to help you get back on track and stay on track:
Step No. 1: Prevent cravings.
Sugar intake is a lot easier to moderate when you don’t have the urge to consume it in the first place. When we focus on what to do, it tends to nudge out the things we’re trying to limit without leaving us feeling deprived. Here’s how:
- Hydrate with water. It’s easy to mistake thirst for a sugar craving.
- Balance your blood sugar Plan your meals around protein from quality meat, fish, or eggs, fibrous vegetables, and fat for flavor.
- Prioritize sleep. Stop the late-night TV and social media scrolling and simply go to bed.
- Replete nutrients. Deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals can cause cravings.
Step No. 2: Evaluate your current intake, then stop it or swap it.
To do a reset successfully, having a structured and straightforward plan can be incredibly helpful. Aim to plan ahead to remove top sugar culprits from your kitchen and to have specific alternatives and added-sugar-free recipes on-hand.
Step No. 3: If it’s a sugar source you aren’t ready to eliminate, reduce the serving size or frequency.
If you’re not ready to fully give up added sugar or do a reset, taking steps to reduce the amount you consume overall is still a solid step in the right direction.
Step No. 4: Drop the guilt and mindfully choose your indulgences.
Most of our sugar intake is mindless. But if there’s a certain item that has added sugar and has genuine meaning or nostalgia to you, plan for it.
