How To Prevent Your Sugar Cravings

Hate it as much as we like, we cannot but admit we have sugar cravings from time to time. This is especially so when the energy level is low and the body needs something sweet to get it moving again.

Yes, what you are experiencing is a sugar craving. Welcome! This is not something to be embarrassed about. Instead, you will be glad you stumbled upon my blog as I’m going to share with you something so exciting yet simple that you can do to combat the sugar craving.

If you have sugar cravings, think of the possible sources. Is it a result of seeing candy, ice cream or other treats from the recently ended Halloween, or perhaps you are simply craving desserts at every meal? 

Lo and behold – one of the simplest and most effective ways to control sugar cravings is to simply brush your teeth!

What? It’s as simple as that, Lionel?

Yes, to be honest, this is a trick used by many (me included) at the end of a meal to signal the fact that you are now to stop eating and focus on something else. 

Brushing your teeth will help to refresh your mouth and take away the desire to have something sweeter. I simply love the smell of fresh breath and sparkling clean teeth.  

Come on, give it a try. The next time that you have a craving for something sweet, simply brush your teeth first and then see if you still have craving for it.

What happens if you don’t happen to have a toothbrush around you? Do not worry as an alternative to brushing your teeth is using one of those breath freshening strips or swishing your mouth with some mouthwash. 

Both can be equally successful in putting the brakes on your cravings for something sweet.
