How to Stop a Sugar Craving

How to Stop a Sugar Craving Fast

I know this sounds crazy but I guarantee this one weird trick will stop a sugar craving fast…

How to Stop a Sugar Craving Fast

If you’re ever craving sugar eat green beans.   Green beans can and will kill the craving almost instantly.  The next time you’re craving sugar – trust me – green beans will stop your sugar craving in seconds.

Fresh green beans are the best choice for killing cravings but, frozen work well too, and you don’t have to worry about prepping them.  Keep some frozen green beans in your freezer.  When a craving strikes, microwave a cup of beans with a few tablespoons of water until they’re done.

If you’re a sugar addict, or emotional eater trying to curb constant (and killer!) cravings… canned green beans are a great tool to help break your sugar addiction and stop strong cravings quickly.   As a former sugar addict, I know(!!) sometimes you just can’t wait to thaw, cook or prep fresh or frozen beans.

If you’re addicted to sugar, popping the top of canned green beans is a great way to help break your addiction.  I recommend getting a few cans of low sodium green or french green beans and keeping a stash at home.

What’s the Best Supplement for Sugar Cravings?

Green beans are great for you house… but it’s not really ideal to carry cans around with you.  If you crave sugar constantly – or simply don’t enjoy green beans, banaba leaf supplements are a great alternative to help stop sugar cravings, too.  Banaba leaf supplements (pronounced just like banana… but with a ‘b’) will help stop sugar cravings, too but because they’re encapsulated they take a little longer to take effect than green beans do.  I carry banaba on trips and when I’m hella hormonal… just in case my inner cookie monster manifests.

You may be able to find banaba leaf at your local health food store.  I know some stores carry it… but I also know a lot of them don’t… because they don’t know about it.  Honestly, banaba is a little known natural cure.

Honestly, if I can end my emotional eating, conquer my sugar addiction and stop cravings…  YOU can do it.  It works, if you work it!  Work it, YOU’RE worth it! If you think this post could help someone you know, please share it.

    I started banaba leaf before I read your article. A friend of mine asked me about the banaba leaf and was it doing anything. I told her that the one thing was I was not craving sugar. She said that’s all in your head. I shared your article with her as confirmation.
