Stop Sugar cravings

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I don't remember where I read this but I was researching diabetes since both my Grandmother and mother have it - developed in their senior years. Anyway, I read that if you take chromium then not only does it help your kidneys process carbs and sugar and decrease the spikes but it also helps with cravings.

I might be crazy but I have to say it works! Since I have been taking a 500mcg pill a day (the lowest amount I could find) I have not had the evening sugar craving. In fact, I don't desire sweet things at all. The thought of eating dessert has no appeal to me at all, in fact I'd rather have a piece of fruit or cottage cheese or anything else.

So I've eliminated meat from my diet, my protein intake is actually higher than when I was eating meat. My carbs are down since taking the chromium. I'm eating way more fresh fruits and vegetables then I ever was (due in large part to my new juicer) and I feel fabulous!

Why didin't I do this sooner?

    Sweet! I am vegetarian and I love how I feel now. I don't have any trouble getting my protein even when I exercise a lot. I am so happy for you success. Keep up the good work.
