Sweets are always in abundance in America today. Especially during holiday times, stores will stock up with candy for weeks before the date! You’ll see aisles and aisles of candy, all there to tempt you in eating it, if you have a sweet tooth.
You can curb the amount of sweets that you eat.
You can control your sweet tooth, and you can even eat sweets in moderation if that’s something you’re interested in.
How? Watch the video, or read on for my first tip.
If you like sweets, what kind of sweets eater are you?
1. Generally speaking, when you’re around sweets, you tend to eat just a little too much, too fast. And they don’t stay in the house for too long because, you kind of scarf them down.
2. Someone who stays as far away from sweets as possible because you just don’t want to deal with the temptation.
3. Or are you somebody who can have sweets and moderation? Someone who can have them in the house and they might last for a few weeks or months. Maybe you’ll have some once in a while, but you’re generally not tempted to overdo it.
I used to be like person number one.
Whenever I was around sweets, I had to try all of them and I would get sugar cravings for sure. And ,when I would have sweets in the house, generally they weren’t around very long because I would eat them in a relatively short amount of time.
Then, I became more interested in taking care of my body and eating more nutritious foods. I decided not to have sweets around at all, and Iavoided them because I just didn’t trust myself with sweets. Actually, I didn’t know how to control myself with sweets.
I surely did see other people who could do it, but I could never figure out how they managed it. I mean, I ended up thinking maybe they’re just a different breed.
Then I went back to school for nutrition
and I learned about the different nutrients and the different kinds of food that we need to eat every day in order to have an optimal mind and body. (This is information that I’ll be sharing with you in my upcoming book, Eat to Lead.
I wanted that kind of energy, vitality and longevity.
So, I started practicing what I was learning. I noticed that I didn’t crave sweets as much as I used to. In fact, I could be around sweets and I could have a little bit, but I didn’t necessarily need to eat everything that was in front of me. I didn’t necessarily need to finish every dessert.
I believe that this can happen for you, too.
So my first tip for you is:
Start focusing more on eating healthy foods and getting healthy meals on a more regular basis.
When you do this, your body will stop looking for the nutrients that it’s missing. See if that doesn’t help you to reduce those cravings, or lessen them to almost nothing. And see if it helps you to keep the sugar temptations at bay.
