Crave Sugar? How to Conquer Your Sweet
By Suzanne Tabor and Dr. Aaron Tabor
- Research studies show that when Americans get the urge
to snack, it's the sugar-filled treats that cause the most damage
to our health and waistline. For example, when we eat in the post-dinner
hours as we watch TV, the most popular snack is ice cream. Excess
calories, excess fat, excess sugar – these are the culprits
that result in America’s expanding waistlines and accompanying
health problems such as diabetes. In fact, well-known health expert
and researcher Dr. Andrew Weil, in his December 2004 newsletter,
supports this theory, noting that “some health problems,
like cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, are more a result
of unhealthy eating” than those excess pounds on their own!
Want to fight back? Try this battle plan for conquering your
1. If you’re longing for something sweet and spicy such
as a slab of cinnamon apple pie or a thick piece of gingerbread
topped with whipped cream, try fresh fruit, such as an apple,
sprinkled with cinnamon or a broiled grapefruit topped with
Splenda™ and cinnamon. You may find the fresh fruit even
more satisfying if you accompany it with a cup of herbal tea
or a coffee substitute, such as Revival Soy’s vanilla-flavored
2. If you’re really hungry, don’t overlook fresh
vegetables. Mini carrots are naturally sweet, high in fiber,
and great for evening snack attacks. Keep them in the house
with cherry tomatoes for evening “treats.”
3. If you want to munch on something crunchy, like peanut brittle
candy, try one of the new sweet soy chips in flavors like apple
pie. Although they’re usually low in calories and carbohydrates,
they’re big in taste satisfaction.
4. Take a break from the TV and go for a walk or visit the
library or a bookstore. You may be bored, not hungry, and that
emotion can result in excess snacking. Entertain yourself with
non-food treats, like a good book or a new magazine.
Don’t deprive yourself. The “prescription”
for conquering your sugar addiction is to satisfy your sweet
tooth with healthier treats, not deny it. Focus on modifying
your habits, not drastically changing them overnight. For example,
suppose you want chocolate. Should you make yourself miserable
by attempting to “satisfy” that craving for chocolate
with a cup of brussel sprouts or lima beans? Of course not,
unless you really want the vegetables! Instead, when you’re
longing for something chocolate-flavored, try a cup of sugar-free
hot chocolate or a chocolate-covered graham cracker with a cup
of nonfat milk or a few chocolate-covered Revival soy nuts.
You’ll feel satisfied – and be on your way to a
