Does Limiting Sugar Knock Out 🤜 💥Sugar Cravings?

Have you ever wondered what happens when you cut down on sugar?

Contrary to common belief, it’s not just about bidding farewell to sugar cravings – the positive effects go far beyond that.

Imagine a life where you not only conquer your sugar craving but also experience improved overall well-being.

Here’s a glimpse of what actually happens when you limit sugar intake:

  • Quality Sleep: One of the unexpected perks is better sleep. Reducing sugar can contribute to a more restful night, helping you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
  • Increased Energy Levels: Say goodbye to the midday slumps! By minimizing sugar, your energy levels become more stable throughout the day, providing a consistent and sustainable source of vitality.
  • Enhanced Mental Clarity: Experience mental sharpness like never before. Limiting sugar intake can lead to improved cognitive function, helping you stay focused, alert, and free from the mental fog that often accompanies excess sugar consumption.

It’s fascinating how addressing your sugar intake goes beyond mere cravings. These tangible benefits can truly transform your daily life.

How much is too much?
It is recommended that added sugars take up only 10% of your overall daily caloric intake. So if you consume 1800 calories a day that is 11 teaspoons of sugar. Many experts recommend less than that: 9 teaspoons (38 grams) for men and 6 teaspoons (25 grams) for women. It is far too easy to consume sugar in our American diet.

The reality of limiting your sugar intake is that for some it isn’t easy and sugar cravings come from a variety of factors. One thing you can do to reduce your daily sugar intake is to focus on eating whole foods rather than packaged foods. Companies often add sugar to products to help preserve the flavor and extend the shelf life. A second thing you can do is drink water instead of sports drinks or soda. The added sugars in these drinks often leads to higher consumption and does not help your body’s natural hunger and fullness signals.
