Taming My Sweet Tooth!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Well, I am taming my sweet tooth, honestly taking it out all together because I am not someone who can just eat a little candy! So my first step is to blog about my triggers, my cravings, what I eat and why I eat it.
#1: Talking about sugar on the sparkteam made me want to eat my very sugary yummy cereal! I have not eaten it yet, but the craving is getting worse as the time goes by.
- I am now eating the cereal after 2 hours of fighting the craving, but to be fair I am only eating one serving. I measured it and everything.
- I craved something sweet so I ate a bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup. I didn't even want it but I wanted sugar and that was all I could find.

I've had a moment of clarity and I'm wondering if maybe the fact that I have low blood sugar may be contributing to my sugar need.

    Congratulations on joining the challenge. Taming your sweet tooth is not an easy task but I find that when I am eating healthy foods all the time that I start to notice that the food I am eating tastes better then the processed food I had been eating. Also, more importantly when dealing with a sweet tooth which can easily take control; I find that I enjoy the sweetness found in fruits and other foods much more and that I actually start to dislike the overly sweet foods that I usually eat by the mouthful, handful, bagful...well you get the idea!

So, just keep examining why you eat the sugar filled treats that you crave and try to find more natural substitutes. Many times we eat foods to give us things that we are missing in our lives...to sooth us, to comfort us, to bury our anger or frustrations or as a way to hide our frustrations and stress.

And, remember--no one is perfect. So, if you find yourself eating that very sugary cereal every once in a while just brush off the sugary crumbs, pick yourself up after that inevitable sugar coma wears off, start your day over and try to eat more nourishing foods for the rest of the day. Everyone needs a treat every once in a while and old habits are sometimes hard to break.

You can conquer that overly large sugar tooth--your the BOSS! You can do it!
