I have sugar cravings

  • Updated

If you are craving sweets, we can advise the following:

  1. Add complex carbohydrates to the diet. 
    Remember to pay attention to all the carbohydrates prescribed in our plan—for example, cereals, whole wheat bread, and pasta.
    Complex carbohydrate foods provide vitamins, minerals, and fibre important to an individual's health. 

  2. Replace sweets with vegetables: carrots, bell peppers, celery stalks, or even fresh beets.
    Vegetables are rich in fibre. Refined sugars contained in white sugar are often called "empty calories" because they have little to no nutritional value.
    Certain fibre types may also promote weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and fight constipation. 

  3. Sleep is very important!
    If you don't sleep enough, you will want some sweets to compensate for the lack of energy.

  4. Be sure to drink plenty of water/herbal tea/other liquids.

Additionally, you can check our course, Weight Loss Basics, available in the Learn tab - Courses, particularly the topics "Psychology. How emotions affect your weight" and "Why do you need to get enough sleep to lose weight?"

We also offer motivational consulting, which is available in the App Chat.
Our specialists will be happy to motivate you, advise you, or listen when needed. Here is the information on how to reach out through the chat.
