  2. Listening to our inner self can take some practice. I appreciate that you are encouraging others to find their answers inside. I am writing about the same on my blog. We all know so much! That being said, this post is so helpful! I have been following Whole30 and it has been interesting noticing when my sugar cravings come. I’ll then ask, ‘Where is this craving is coming from?’ The answers have been enlightening and make it easier to say no.

      Thank you for sharing Caroline. I understand where you are coming from. I think we have all been there. Your body responds to stress by secreting hormones that are also related to food cravings. In a 2019 study , the stress hormone cortisol was linked to the desire for sweet foods, for example. A 2016 research review showed that the hormone ghrelin, which controls appetite, was released when people were stressed out.

    There is a macrobiotic drink called sweet vegetable drink. Using it regulates blood sugar and controls cravings.

    ½ cup onions
    ½ cup carrot
    ½ cup round, green cabbage
    ½ cup sweet winter squash
    4-6 cups spring water
    Finely chop all vegetables into small pieces.
    Bring the water to a boil (use 2-4 times the amount of water to vegetables).
    Add vegetables to the boiling water, leave the pot uncovered until it returns to a boil.
    Cover the pot, reduce the flame to low and simmer 20 minutes.
    Strain out the vegetables and discard them.
    Drink the broth warm or hot.

      High in protein: Chia seeds are rich in protein which helps in reducing appetite and food intake. The protein content in these healthy seeds promotes growth and development, building muscle mass, and thereby reducing your body fat in many ways. Consuming salmon frequently can help you lose weight and keep it off. Like other high-protein foods, it helps regulate the hormones that control appetite and make you feel full. Great choices B.

      Aah yes…. me too. I did consider the irony of putting that picture myself.Many sugar cravings stem from a blood sugar imbalance. When your body ingests sugar, your blood sugar spikes and your body releases insulin to lower it to a safer level. If the insulin brings your blood sugar level a bit too low, as often happens, your body craves foods that will raise it and increase your energy.
