Cutting refined sugar out of your diet can be one of toughest things to do. It’s highly addictive so cravings can come on very strong and are often hard to ignore.
However, eliminating sugar from your diet can be done. If you do decide to go sugar-free, one of the best ways is to go cold turkey. Cut out sugar completely with these simple steps and you could be craving-free in a week.
Eat less salt: When you eat a lot of salt, your body naturally craves sugar to balance out the flavors. For example, if you add salt to a dish that’s already salty, like eggs with cheese, chances are you’ll be wishing you had a side of pancakes with syrup even though you’re not hungry anymore. If you’re trying to cut out sugar quickly, it’s best to avoid overly salty food for at least a week. Once you no longer crave sugar, you can gradually add saltier foods back into your diet.
