How to Stop Sugar Cravings?!
by Cindy Jones
Sugar Blues - what's that??
I have been obese 51 years. After having lap band surgery over 2 years ago I have lost over 100 pounds.
I exercise regularly and up until the last 6 months was doing well on my diet (at least for the most part).
However, now I battle my craving for ice cream and/or chocolate. It is uncontrollable - what can I do? NOTHING SEEMS TO RESOLVE THIS MADDENING DESIRE. Please help. Thanks
The best approach is to MANAGE the desire vs. hoping/wishing it will go away.
When the ugly sugar craving monster raises its ugly head, you need to have a plan of what you can eat a small amount of to satisfy the monster! Eating slowly and mindfully will help you feel satisfied with a small portion.
