Struggling with sugar cravings?



 Do not grieve over what has passed unless it makes you work harder for what is about to come.”

Dear Readers,

Struggling with sugar cravings?



Many of you have been in touch with me since the lockdown, 
sharing your stories and your struggles. 

A few of you have shared how you are struggling with sugar cravings.
Sitting around the house all day makes it so easy to grab a sweet or a
snack just to pass the time or to break up the routine. 

That’s the thing, 
We don’t tend to binge on salads. 
We binge on muffins, pies, sweets, fizzy drinks, donuts.
Mostly refined carbohydrates.

This can easily lead to a blood sugar spike and then crash later on. 

Studies show that low blood sugar levels can lead to many issues
including rapid mood swings, reduced reaction times and depression.
In this state we feel groggy, tired and unmotivated. 

The big problem is that low blood sugar levels makes us crave more sugary foods.
Your body will crave what it needs. 
It is an uncontrollable instinct that kicks in when your blood sugar drops. 

These cravings can then lead to another binge on refined carbohydrates,
which leads to another blood sugar crash,
which leads to another binge,
which leads to another crash
and so the cycle continues,
going from one sugar spike to the next,
to the next. 

Sugar leads to more sugar,
to more sugar
to more and more….

So that’s why I am so excited to share this training with you.
