Overcome Sugar Cravings

The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet, which focuses on weight loss, is low glycemic with lots of raw foods and vegetable juices. One question that comes up often is what to do about sugar cravings.  If the ice cream, chocolate, or that sweet energy bar continually calls you, it may be time to try something new.  Here’s what you can do:

  • Eat Adequate Protein. One of the symptoms of not eating enough protein is sugar-cravings.
  • Improve Digestion. Even if you’re eating enough protein, you may not be digesting it well. If so, you could benefit by taking digestive enzymes.  I recommend Ness Formula Enzymes–when taken between meals, they help “clean up” undigested proteins from the recent meal. A great benefit is that your hair will grow thicker. For more information, email Cherie.
  • Apple-Cider Vinegar. Drink unfiltered apple cider vinegar and watch your sugar obsession disappear: Add 1 to 3 teaspoons of pure, raw, organic apple cider vinegar to a 6-ounce glass of filtered water. Apple cider vinegar promotes digestion by keeping your stomach acid in balance, helping the body digest proteins and fats. Good digestion is essential to seeing the desire for sugar fall by the wayside.
  • Umeboshi plum, which is salty and sour, can put an end to sugar cravings.
  • Sleep Enough; Sleep Well. When you don’t sleep well, or enough, your appetite-controlling hormones get out of whack. If you need help, check out the amino acid program to balance brain neurotransmitters.  This program can do amazing things for your sleep.  Go to www.neurogistics.com and take the Self-Test Quiz.  Use the practitioner code SLEEP.
  • Control yeasts. If you have a yeast overgrowth known as candidiasis, you will probably crave sweets and/or starches, which easily turn to sugar.  You can take the Candida Quiz in my book The Coconut Diet. When you get yeasts under control, the cravings should diminish quickly.
  • Face your emotional pain. Sugar cravings may be due to you saying, “I don’t want to really face the bitterness of my pain or the lack of sweetness in my life right now. I want to get “charged up” and stuff my emotions. There is only one-way emotional pain ever leaves us. We must acknowledge it, forgive the offender, and let it go.  See my chapter on Emotional Eating and Binging in The Juice Lady’s Turbo Diet.

Add this mixture to the vegetables in the bowl and mix well with your hands. Form into patties about 3 inches in diameter on dehydrator sheets.
