Simple Ways to Cope When You Go Sugar Free

Breaking up with sugar doesn’t have to be devastating. It can be like one of those breakups that’s kind of mutual, that feels necessary and totally OK. It all depends on how you approach it. You can make it hard for yourself, or you can make it easy. 

Here are a few of the best ways to reduce sugar cravings and make eliminating sugar a piece of sugar-free cake! 

tea

Licorice tea after meals - Naturally sweet, helps balance blood sugar, and it’s great for digestion. 

Strength in substitutions - Swap bread with slices of roasted sweet potato, pudding with chia and coconut milk, bananas with high fiber berries etc. 

Eat plenty of protein and fat - If your body’s been running off sugar for awhile you need to give it a new fuel source to draw from. High-quality protein and saturated fats like coconut oil and ghee are great for stabilizing blood sugar levels and providing a valuable energy source. 

Embrace fiber - Eat plenty of fiber to stabilize your blood sugar levels. Greens, raw vegetables, berries, hemp seeds, flax seeds etc. are all great sources of healthy fiber. 

Make your water exciting - If you’re used to sugary drinks, try making your water more fun. I like to add sliced cucumber, lemon, orange, grapefruit, strawberry, blueberry, or make a strong tea and drink that over ice.
