Satisfying the Sweet Tooth and Sugar Cravings – Sushma Shah ND
We’ve all been there; the 2:00pm lull between lunch and dinner, craving something sweet to get us through until our next meal time. Perhaps you’re one of the organized few that is ready with healthy snacks in hand during this inevitable moment, munching happily on your apple slices and raw almonds. Alternatively, maybe you fall under the category of the hopelessly unprepared, reaching for the closest refined sugar product within arm’s reach?
Reducing sugar in our diets is an essential undertaking when it comes to health. Preparing for these inevitable “cravings” can be just as essential as even the best diet recommendations can be derailed by that snickers bar in the office break room. Having strategies up our sleeves for the client who reports “I just need something sweet” are essential if we hope to foster lasting diet changes, but can be a challenge for even the most seasoned health care practitioner.
Dr.Sushma Shan, ND, in our Best Article of the Week, takes the guess work out of these recommendations, providing knowledgeable strategies aimed at reducing sugar cravings for our clients. As the famous saying goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”; strategies aimed at preparing for the inevitable sweet tooth can be pivotal for the client who is attempting to eat better…and how sweet is that?
