how to stop sugar cravingsWhat To Do About Sugar Cravings?

It’s officially the start of “sugar season” as the cooler weather sets in and holiday fun begins! It may start with a cookie at work, a latte with extra whipping cream or a piece of pumpkin pie. And these “bonus sugars” are in often addition to the health sugars or carbohydrates that you consume in your daily diet of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Before you know it, you are addicted to an extra daily serving of a sugary food.

Having a “sweet tooth” is joked about, but is no laughing matter. An occasional indulgence in a sweet treat is not the problem, but over-consumption is a problem. According to the American Heart Association, the average American tends to eat 22 teaspoons of sugar a day! This excess of sugar intake is linked to diabetes, obesity, chronic yeast infections, leaky gut syndrome and a whole host of other maladies. The recommended limit is about 6 teaspoons a day for woman and 9 teaspoons/day for men.

Fatigue becomes chronic when exhaustion or lack of energy lasts 6 months or more. In chronic fatigue, the fatigue is extreme and constant, making it difficult or even impossible to function at the most basic level.
