Five Ways to Keep that Sweet Tooth Away!
This is my absolute biggest weakness. I LOVE sweets and I know you do too! A huge problem for most people, including myself, is after a meal your body craves sweet foods. Here are some ways that help avoid sugar cravings after a meal:
1. Wait 15 minutes after you finish a meal! I know this may be hard, but tell yourself that you will have something sweet 15 minutes after you eat, and see if your body is still craving it. I guarantee you will be too full to think of having something sweet after.
2. Eat or drink anything minty! If waiting 15 minutes still doesn’t cut it, eat a mint, chew mint gum or drink peppermint tea. This does not mean go eat one of those yummy chocolate mint girl-guide cookies haha.
3. Brush your teeth! Once again the mint flavour toothpaste will take away the sugar craving.
4. Drink water alone or with a freshly squeezed lemon.
5. Have sex. Enough said;)
