There are at least seven ways to stop craving sugar and carbohydrates.
This is useful information for anyone who wants to lose a bit of weight.
Step number one is to make sure you get enough sleep. Many people don’t get enough sleep due to the internet and being on screen for hours every day. Poor sleeping habits lead to poor eating habits.
When people get tired, they are going to grab something with sugar or caffeine in it. Fatigue drives the demand for sugar. Getting enough sleep will give you the energy you need to get through the day without eating a chocolate bar.
Step number two is to eat breakfast. It’s not mandatory, but I highly recommend that you eat something in the morning. A meal with protein will help stave off sugar and carbohydrate cravings. Having a morning meal is going to help your metabolism cope with the peaks and troughs of energy throughout the day.
Eating three good meals of quality, healthy, fresh foods will make a real difference to your sugar cravings.

Step number three is to stop panicking when you’re a little bit hungry. You don’t’ need to grab food the first moment you notice hunger. I find that people with anxiety are particularly prone to worrying that it is bad to sit with a little bit of hunger.
Step number four is to eat regularly. You will feel little drops during the day when your blood sugar is dropping. When you’re getting a little bit more tired, and you eat some food, and you pick up. Be aware of that tiny little bit of tiredness that is giving you an indication that it’s time to eat.
Give yourself a good one hour window every day for when you normally would eat. For example, lunch between 12 and 1 and supper between 5 and 6
Try to eat regular meals at regular times.
Step number five is making it hard to grab junk food when you’re hungry. Don’t buy soda pop, chips, and chocolate bars to bring home. If you’ve got carbs and sugar in the house, you’re going to eat it when you’re tired, stressed, or overly hungry.
Make good decisions when you go shopping, not impulse decisions.
Step number six is to make sure you have lots of healthy foods to choose from at home. Some good foods to have on hand are green apples, berries, and avocados. When you’re digestion is working really well, you can eat an even wider variety of fruits.
Step number seven is to make sure you include a balanced selection of foods in your diet. Eat a variety of foods. Make sure you include plenty of protein and plenty of healthy fats in your diet.
You don’t need special diets to maintain good health. You need common sense.
Basic foods, lots of sleep, plenty of water, and low stress will all help you manage your sugar cravings.
If you can control your life, you can control a lot.
