How to tame your sweet tooth
Identify your craving triggers
To help beat sugar cravings and avoid giving in to temptation, try to identify patterns to your cravings and avoid those things that trigger them. For instance, if you normally buy a sugary coffee on your way into work, try to take a different route or walk on the other side of the road from your favourite coffee shop if you can, or if you crave sugar when you are stressed try to find a healthier way to deal with your emotions. If you can’t identify an obvious trigger, try keeping a journal identifying when you most feel tempted by sugar cravings and see if you can identify a pattern.
