Cookies, cake and soda are all the sweeties I grew up on. It’s hard for me to digest the facts about the substances used in this treats. These sweets are not needed in a healthy diet and can actually be deadly. In today’s post I share 3 tips for sugar addicts who want to loss weight. I hope you will be inspired by these three weight loss tips to help break sugar cravings.
[alert-note]Three Weight Loss Tips To Break The Sweet Addiction[/alert-note]
I’m not going to lie to you just to make you want to continue reading this post. Once you recognize that you have a problem with sweets it will be easy to over come the bad habits. Below are three tips that I use to help to stop sugar cravings.
1. Drink More Water
It is recommended that a woman consumes 9 cups or 72 Fluid Ounces of water a day. I keep my pink water container with me all day filling it up constantly. This helps me remember I need to fill it at least 3 times ( 24 oz bottle) during the day. When I’m working in the garden or out in the greenhouse I usually drink an extra. Drinking water will curb your appetite while providing the fluid your body needs. Try infusing your favorite fruits or herbs in a water bottle when you crave sweet soda. Check out this 32 oz fruit infuser water bottle I just ordered on Amazon.
2. Eat more Vegetables and Fruit
Growing my own fruits, vegetables and herbs year-round allows me to have fresh produce on hand. Each week we load up our teak fruit bowl in the kitchen with fresh produce so it is easy to make healthy choices. Bananas, grapes, apples, pears, tomatoes and avocados are some favorites. It is important to get your natural sugar the body needs from fresh produce. Eating the proper amount of vegetables and fruits each day will also help you break cravings for bad sweet choices.
According to the American Heart Association (AHA) women should have 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons) of sugar.
3. Connect With Others
