7 Ways to Kick Your Sugar Habit

  1. 1. HomeHome Sugar is probably one of the most addicting substances that’s out there today. Although you may not think of sugar addiction as being real, sugar stimulates the production of dopamine in your brain, automatically causing you to feel pleasure anytime you eat it. While many foods naturally contain sugar, you can experience significant health risks from added sugars. Weight gain is just the tip of the iceburg when it comes to sugar intake. It can also lead to insulin resistance, central obesity, depression, and other health risks over time. So, if you’re trying to kick your sugar habit, try these 7 ways to get started. 1. Spend a little time researching When you’re serious about actually detoxing from sugar, you may not actually be getting rid of all the foods in your diet that contain sugar. Some of the biggest offenders for sugar include processed foods, desserts, and sodas. However, sugar can be lurking in all sorts of foods, even ones that you may think of as healthy. Spend a little time finding out which foods contain sugar and which ones do not. You may be surprised by the results! 2. Clean out your kitchen Some people are more prone to getting cravings when they have sugar in their house, so it’s best to clean out anything in your kitchen that could be a weakness. Remove as much of the temptation as possible. This can be a hard goal if you have others in your household who enjoy sugar and aren’t ready to give it up. Get rid of as much as you can and encourage others to eat sugar-containing foods away from the house to help you avoid any temptation initially. 3. Plan out recipesin advance Probably the biggest problem that people face when giving up sugar is running into last-minute meals or feeling hungry and turning to sugar for a quick snack. However, it’s much easier to follow a sugar-free diet when you have lists of ingredients and recipes that you can work with. Plan out your meals in advance and be sure to have plenty of sugar-free snacks on hand when you face cravings. This will not only help you stay on track, but also keeps you healthy throughout the day. 4. Find support Although you can give up sugar by yourself, it may be easier if you have a support system in place. Talk to your friends and see if any of them would like to go sugar-free with you. Many times, people are interested and will be willing to commit to a sugar-free lifestyle if they have a buddy along the way. If you can’t find any friends or family who are interested, then you may instead be able to find a group either online or in the community that has chosen to give up sugar. Having this support network is important so try to find one that works for you. 5.

Enjoy natural foods One of the reason why people turn to sugar is that regular food doesn’t satisfy their cravings. If you’re not eating real foods on a regular basis, then you’re going to find it hard to give up sugary foods.

When meals are prepared well, they recenter your taste buds and help you stay on track. Giving up sugar is easier for some than others, but anyone can do it with a little planning and effort.
