You may be searching for a secret formula to figure out how to stop sugar cravings…
And really, there is no magic cure or complex explanation — the solution is as simple as removing all sugar and white flour from what you eat!
You may be thinking, oh yeah right. Sounds super simple. *Eye roll*
I get it — I’ve been there, and trust me, it starts out as a pretty uncomfortable experience mentally, physically, and for many including myself, emotionally tough to let go of the sugar and white flour romance. When we’re in the thick of our binge eating and consuming sugar and flour, the notion of ever being able to know exactly how to stop sugar cravings seems ludicrous. But, the true miracle occurs after giving up the two beasts of sugar and flour. Once you stop activating the reward pathways of the brain that thrive on your intake of sugar and flour, the sugar cravings will become less intense, much more manageable, and for many, the cravings cease altogether! Good news, right?
So the secret recipe for how to stop sugar cravings is to stop consuming sugar and white flour. As a self-proclaimed chocolate addict, I know this works because I decided to give it a try one day when I was sick and tired of the constant sugar cravings and the need for more and more sugar content each time. The answer to how to stop sugar cravings is to do just that – give it up, and the ghost of sugar and flour won’t haunt you any longer. As we say at Beacon: liberation, not deprivation!
