Sugar cravings are something we can all relate to. Once you start, it can be hard to stop. Whilst there is a growing awareness about the effects of sugar on the body, often we can struggle with knowing how to stop these cravings. But it can be done.
First, let’s understand where those cravings come from
You may have heard the phrase ”the gut is the second brain” – that’s because more than 100 million nerve cells line your gastrointestinal tract. These cells send triggers to the central nervous system that trigger mood changes and these mood changes can set off that sugar craving.
Now, The Fix!
Extensive research shows that leafy greens are essential for feeding good gut bacteria. This good gut bacteria is what keeps your system alkaline. And the alkaline environment reduces your sugar cravings. BINGO!
Now an alkaline environment sounds great, but how can this be achieved (easily)? Experts suggest boosting your daily diet with 5-7 servings of vegetables. Too hard?
