BEAT SUGAR CRAVINGS
We explain the science behind cravings and strategies to help you tame your sweet tooth
Why is it that after eating a perfectly satisfying meal we often fancy something sweet? An extra piece of toast with jam after breakfast, a biscuit after lunch, or chocolate, ice cream and sweets after dinner.
Craving sugar when you don’t need to eat can be controlled, according to emerging research. The answer lies in your choice of foods at main meals, plus tweaking your behaviour when you’re around food.
Try these six strategies to beat between-meal munchies and curb sugar cravings. In a few weeks you can retrain your brain and taste buds to think about food in a healthier way.
