Is Sugar Controlling Your Life?

So, have you ever got to the point where you were craving chocolate, cinnamon buns, or something sweet? Having a sweet tooth is no joke.  Below are 3 simple tips to curb your sugar craving and give you a healthy alternative.

1- Start your day with Apple Cidar Vinegar (ACV).

  • I recommend a daily regimen of 1-2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water each morning.
  • This will give you a daily cleanse and also get you started on the right foot for the day.
  • For me, ACV, also helps control my appetite and need for something sweet.

2- Drink lots of water. Try out infused water.

  • It is so important to stay hydrated!
  • Our bodies are 75-80% water.
  • There is no better cleanse than drinking filtered water.
  • Aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces.
  • For instance, if you weigh 120 pounds, then aim to drink 60 ounces of water each day.
  • I am a huge fan of infused water. It taste delicious, adds flair to your water, and keeps you hydrated all day.
  • NOTE: I also love coconut water. You can't go wrong with this. It is not only super hydrating, but also you get tons of electrolytes and minerals.
  • In fact, coconut water actually contains more  potassium than a banana. Did you know that?

3- Go for alternative, healthy sweeteners.

When all else fails and you still are determined to feed your sweet tooth, try healthy sweeteners.
  • My favorite natural sweeteners are as follows:
    • Raw Organic Honey
    • Agave Syrup
    • Dates
  • Other sweeteners that some recommend are:
    • Coconut sugar
    • Maple syrup (100% pure)
