Dealing with sugar cravings

Monday, September 24, 2012


The challenge was to find an article about my biggest nutritional hurdle and make a plan to deal with it. The sugar cravings.... I don't know if they're the biggest necessarily, but they're a huge part of the reason I backslide and seem like a really good place to start working on making better decisions.

The article recommends throwing away everything in the house that has these refined sugars in it. I don't think I can actually do that; my husband will not agree to go without his snacks. What I think I can do, though, is confine all the sugary things (and all the potato chips, as well) in one cupboard that can be "his" cupboard, and declare it off-limits for myself. I'm sure one of our cats would be willing to pose for a big picture that says "I SAID NO!" on it that I can hang on the cupboard door.. :-P

It also suggests shopping around the outskirts of the grocery store, where most of the staples and fresh produce live.... I think I can do that.

    You can do it! I agree with Manasa the outskits are the best places to stay! I fine the more whole foods I eat (aka non-processed or refined) the better off I feel.

    Let us know when you've gone through your cupboards!
