So last week I seriously got back on the wagon and unfortunately after a summer of eating oodles and oodles of junk food I’m now having to detox from all that sugar and grain.
Withdrawing for the white stuff (sugar and processed flours) feels just as bad a withdrawing from a drug (I am a reformed smoker). Your body becomes so addicted to it, one little taste makes you want more and when you don’t have it your energy levels drop and you feel grumpy and lethargic. It takes time for the cravings to go away, but eventually they do start to fade and you begin to really feel the positive effects of a clean food lifestyle. Sadly you first have to feel crappy before you can feel good.
I’m in the rough stages, but I know there is a light at the end of the two week tunnel. In the meantime I’ve been sticking to my guns and using hot water with cocoa and a wee bit of stevia to ward off any crazy sugar cravings. It always seems to do the trick.
Already enjoying having the time to experiment in my kitchen with grain free, dairy free and sugar free recipes. I love fall!
How do you ward off your sugar cravings?
