I love the saying, “when you know better, you do better” but, how often does that actually ring true? I know that in order for my body to function at its prime that I need 3-4 meals a day and two snacks. However, I often skip meals when my money isn’t right or time isn’t on my side. This results in me having a serious case of hangry! You know this oh-so-well, when you are in between hungry and angry. I am not the best person to be around when I get to that point and the important people in my life know to keep a pack of almonds on deck. I also know that my weekly bag of gummy bears is not helping me to obtain any of the goals that I have set for myself in 2018 but, that doesn’t stop my weekly purchase.
So why do we crave sugar? For so many reasons….
We Are Emotional Eating
“Sugar actually lights up the pleasure and reward center of our brain, the same way if someone’s giving you a smile or a mother-and-child bond, even falling in love. So, it makes perfect sense [that] when we eat sugar, we want more of it.” - Rebecca Scritchfield
We Are Tired
When we eat sugar your body gets a boost of energy (a very very temporary boost), mostly due to the fact that our body can turn sugar into energy at a super fast pace so when you are craving sugar most of the time your body just needs fuel. Sugar does not contain any nutritional value to your day, which makes it pointless to consume in my opinion. Ask yourself, when was the last time you ate? Was it enough? How much of your meal consisted of processed foods? All of those are factors that can aid to your body needing fuel.
The list goes on and on but, the bigger question is what can you do in the interim, while you are changing your eating habits, and water consumption? I have recently decided to try Sweet Defeat and although I was skeptical at first, the results have been pretty amazing to say the least. Because of the goals I have set for myself limiting my sugar consumption is definitely necessary. One little lozenge (that tastes like a mint) delivers an instant fix to all of your sugar cravings with just three simple main and natural ingredients: mint, gymnema extract, and zinc. This can help be the boost to your morning routine, in my case I feel that sweet defeat has helped me to naturally crave whole foods, and avoid compulsive snacking. What do I mean when I say that? If you usually wake up craving donuts sweet defeat can aide in you choosing oatmeal instead. There is nothing better that eating “real food” vs processed foods.
