Sugar cravings ?
Research says that our brains are hardwired for pleasure and sugar works like many addictive drugs. So, are we sugar fiends?
Sugar feeds cancer cells, it causes inflammation, and excess sugar is turned into fat by the liver. 😬
Two effective ways for me to curb my cravings....daily oil use and my awesome,healthy chocolate milkshake.
It can be a struggle to overcome that craving for a sugar drinks or chocolate, but there is help! These oils can curb those sugar cravings and help us stay on track.🙌🏻
I add these oils to water I have carbonated.
✅Grapefruit is uplifting and energizing. It can help us get stuff done without the soda and it's just slightly sweet, and can trick our brain into feeling satisfied.😉
✅Slim and Sassy (Smart and Sassy in Canada ) also contains grapefruit, along with peppermint, cinnamon, lemon, and ginger. Peppermint and ginger can help soothe the digestive tract. Peppermint in particular tells our brain that we are done with eating for the time being. Cinnamon can help balance blood sugar and supports a healthy pancreas. Lemon and grapefruit are wonderful for the kidneys and liver and can help our bodies process sugar and remove waste from the body.
✅Fennel- Place one drop of fennel essential oil on your toothbrush when brushing to help fight sweet tooth cravings and provide antimicrobial benefits for the gums..👍🏼
In addition to oils, consider adding whole fats to your diet (in moderation). Fats such as avocado, MCT oil , nuts, and olive oil can help you feel satisfied longer and helps reduce those sugar cravings.
