what is the alternative?
Q:since i’ve tried willpower but failed, does anyone know of a natural sweet craving suppressor?!
More Answers to “what is the alternative?“Chew cinnamon sticks! Chromium is really good for this, it’s required by the body for blood sugar regulation, and it assists insulin in enabling cells in the body to take up glucose in the body for energy release. I believe you can find it in larger amounts in foods like green peppers, but my mother and I both take it in capsule form as a way to help deal with sugar cravings that could see us eating high sugar foods which in turn would cause problems due to our having hypoglycemia (trust me it does make sense).You can get capsules at most health stores, alongside diet aids – this isn’t a diet aid per-say, but people do use it to help by reducing sugar cravings.
Chromium and dried fruit.Gymnema sylvestre is herb which, when placed on the tongue, temporarily blocks the action of sweet receptors – it is a bizarre experience, sugar tastes like grit! Take some when you are craving sweets and then even if you eat them, they will taste awful so you will stop at one!It is also of benefit in diabetes but this is a complex mechanism..Good Luck! Believe it or not, I’ve heard water, but I don’t know if it works or not.
Eat sweets, Just ration them. Don’t eat a whole bag of m&M’s just half the bag, and make them peanut m&m’s not plain. Must treat yourself for good behavoir or you will fail. keep cuting back gradually.Balanced diet cut calories and treat yourself once in a wile just cut back! lol There is nothing wrong with eating sweet foods.In many cultures the savory course is followed by a ‘sweet’. Sugar is not bad for you. Starchy foods like bread, potatoes and pasta are not bad for you either. Some fats are essential in your diet.Sugars, starches and fats are energy foods and if you eat more than your body needs it is not wasted but stored as adipose tissue (fat) beneath the skin.If you have a normal, delicious, healthy, balanced diet you will include sweet things – but you must avoid over-doing it!For reliable medical/scientific advice about diet and nutrition look here:**ADDITIONAL**The Chinese government has banned many ‘traditional’ remedies.
