If you are craving sweets, we can advise the following:
- Add complex carbohydrates to the diet.
Do not ignore all the carbohydrates that are prescribed in our plan. For example, cereals, whole wheat bread, and pasta.
Complex carbohydrate foods provide vitamins, minerals, and fibre that are important to an individual's health.
- 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.
- Sleep is very important!
If you don't sleep enough, you will want some sweets to compensate for the lack of energy.
- Be sure to drink plenty of water/herbal tea/other liquids.
