How to curb your sugar cravings the HEALTHY way
Are you addicted to sugar? If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance you feel stuck in a vicious cycle – and you are not alone.
So many people will crave, eat, restrict and then go back to craving sugary foods – going round and round and never hopping off the hamster wheel.
- Do you always need to finish a meal with something sweet?
- Do you crave sugary treats at all hours of the day – even when you aren’t really hungry?
- Do you find it difficult to incorporate veggies and fruits into your diet because you are constantly craving other foods that are loaded with sugar?
We feel you. At some point or another we have all been in your shoes, reaching for the chocolate when we are tired or stressed and ordering a few too many caramel lattes to get us through a long work week.
While it’s normal (and perfectly fine) to treat yourself with that delicious bakery pastry from time to time, if you find you can’t go a day without eating something sweet, it might be time to hit the reset button on your diet.
The Active Blends three-day juice cleanse might seem intimidating when you are used to snacking throughout the day or eating dessert each night, but you will be surprised at how effective a juice cleanse can be at stopping sugar cravings once and for all.
Dozens of our customers report craving vegetables, healthy fats like avocado and walnuts and lean protein sources after a juice cleanse. Even those who normally have a diet high in processed sugars find they have no desire to revert back to their old habits.
So why is a juice cleanse so effective at kickstarting a healthier lifestyle?
In short, it comes down to a combination of physiological and mental changes caused by the influx of vitamins and minerals.
Cold pressed vegetable and fruit juices (like those created by Active Blends) are full of natural sugars and enzymes. After as little as 24 hours of consuming ONLY cold-pressed juice, you will find your cravings for refined sugars are severely diminished.
Juicing also eliminates the habit of comfort eating, making you feel satiated with less food than usual. This provides a psychological boost to help get over the hurdle of changing habits.
It is this change in your mindset that is perhaps the biggest benefit of completing a juice cleanse. That euphoric feeling you get after consuming so many vitamins and minerals will make you less tempted to reach for sugary snacks and far more determined to eat healthier meals that make you FEEL and LOOK good.
Your stomach will be less bloated, your skin might even have a natural ‘glow’ and you’ll be motivated to exercise because you feel lighter and more confident.
So why would you give that all up for a quick sugar fix? …. the answer is you WON’T!
There’s no way you will crave junk food once you realise how great you feel consuming fruits and vegetables. It’s for this reason that so many people will go on to lose weight after a juice cleanse because their mentality around their body has completely changed!
