You’ve been eating Paleo for a couple weeks and you feel great and you plan on eating this way forever and there’s absolutely no reason to cheat EVAR and……then you’re blindsided by an intense sugar craving so strong it could knock over a wooly mammoth.
What do you do?
This is one of the most common questions I get from friends who eat Paleo. How you deal with sugar cravings will require a little experimentation. You should try each of these methods to see which one curbs your cravings best.
Whatever you do, do not use this as an excuse for a cheat. Eating sugar right now will only reinforce your sugar cravings and lead to more later on! It’s a slippery slope that leads to the need for temporary sugar detox diets.
Instead, we want to focus on sustainable, long-term habits that benefit your health.
What’s your favorite way to slay the evil sugar craving? Share it in the comments below!
