A big obstacle that I’ve had to overcome in my life is my sugar craving. I am ALWAYS craving sweets and most of the time I think to myself… eh, what will one piece of chocolate do for me anyway? Well the fact of the matter is that one piece of chocolate never really turns into just one piece; I’m left with a taste in my mouth that always craves more and more! I’m sure many of you out there can understand this feeling.

I’ve decided to take action about it and I will share with you exactly what I’ve done to cut this terrible habit that’s continued for so long.

My first step was to figure out exactly when I was having these cravings. Once I did that, I was able to see if there was something in particular I was doing before the craving kicked in. For example, on weeknights after dinner I typically have the same routine – I get comfy on the couch with a cup of tea and either turn the tv on, or work on the computer. The problem with this was that every time I did this I always wanted some sort of dessert. I decided that after dinner, instead of sitting on the couch I would get outside to take a walk in the gorgeous summer weather. I’m not kidding when I say this really helped kill my craving!

Sometimes it’s just those small little things that we subconsciously associate with one another – like sitting on the couch, drinking tea and eating dessert.

I urge you to see what it is that you crave throughout your day and try to examine what you can be doing differently to not have the craving. Change your routine a bit, it won’t kill you!

If you’ve tried this and want to let me know how you’re doing, I would be more then happy to hear any stories that you may have.
