How To Overcome Sugar Cravings And Live A Healthy Life

Written by Ka Sundance

Sugar addiction is one of the worst addictions one can come across. The main reason this addiction is so bad, is it’s highly accepted and not really considered a problem or an addiction. It is really important to overcome sugar cravings in order to live a healthy and more active life. One of the main issues with sugar addictions is it causes people to eat the wrong food. This can lead to a number of side effects and cause people to fall ill with major health problems. We need to understand sugar is not a bad thing, consuming the wrong kind of sugar is bad.

Refined sugar is found in so many places – soft drinks, processed food etc. This is the kind of addiction one needs to get away from. If you learn to overcome sugar cravings for refined white sugar you will be able to live a long healthy life free from many diseases. It is hard to overcome sugar cravings, but once you learn how to do this, your life is sorted and you can focus on a healthier lifestyle. Refined sugar is bad and poisonous for the body and needs to be eliminated from a daily diet in order to live a healthy life.  There are many ways to enjoy healthy sweets.

One can overcome sugar cravings by replacing the bad sugar with natural organic products which can benefit the body instead of causing harm to it.

Fruit sugar is a great alternative to overcome sugar cravings. Like the name suggests, this sugar is natural sugar extracted from fruits and is a healthier option as compared to refined white sugar. A healthy body is a more active and a more productive body. It’s essential to start eating healthy at a young age in order to live longer and healthier.

One of the best practices to overcome sugar cravings is including green juice in your diet. Many times sugar cravings are associated with hunger. Your body craves its daily intake of its minerals and nutrients. This feeling is best suppressed with the intake of sugar which is why sugar addicts crave sweet foods when hungry. Although this gives them a full feeling it does not meet the daily requirement of necessary minerals and nutrients essential for the body. Green juice can help provide all the daily nutrients and minerals and also overcome the sugar craving.

Another way to overcome sugar cravings is incorporating as much raw food in your diet as you can. You don’t need to limit your intake of raw foods and you can stuff yourself with it until you feel satisfied. You won’t have any health issues while consuming raw foods since it is free from any harmful chemicals, and can only benefit your body. Fruits are a great raw food option and since it’s sweet it helps you overcome your sugar cravings drastically. It helps you live a healthier and more fruitful life.

    I eat non-artificial sugar (natural sugar) when I can, and when I feel like I want to eat some candies… which isn’t often. I listen to my body, and it wants carbs. “Eating too much fruit and sugar at the wrong time”? What the hell is that nonesense! …Fat, in amounts, is good. It’s an energy reserve! What goes in fat is what the body did not have to use during the day, for it’s needs. The liver does not store any nutrient. It’s bullshit. I drink alcohol, the liver takes care of it.Easy as pie

    Artificial sweetners are poison. Just eat some fruit if you need some sugars. Listen to your body and stop eating all the carbs. It’s the carb overload that is creating the insulin resistance. Also eating too much fruit and sugar at the wrong time. Fill your liver stores then STOP. That is the key to success. Only eat as much fruit as you need to replenish your liver. This avoids spill over into fat. When you exercise your liver will kick in the needed blood sugar.

    OK, I confess, a lifelong sugar addict, using that to replace the sweetness that was missing from my life. I’ve been feeling the call to return to more fresh fruits, veg and green juices but this pushed me to start that TODAY! I’ll get that processed sugar monkey off my back; dusting off the juicer, loading up on fresh local fruits and veg. Wonderful reminder, thank you!
