Tip #10 for banishing sugar cravings – Don’t O.D. on fruit. Fruits are not alkaline-forming. Yes – fructose in a fresh, in-season piece of fruit is different to fructose in juices and is definitely different from High-Fructose-Corn-Syrup. But, I recommend keeping fruit intake down to one piece per day. Dr. Mercola recommends keeping fructose intake under 15grams per day as an absolute maximum. (1 medium banana on average would have around 7-8g of fructose.)

Tip #9 for banishing sugar cravings – Get rid of liquid sugars. Any form of liquid sugar is worse than solid food. Sugar without the fiber and bulk is far more detrimental to the body, hits your liver, and it turns on the fat storing process, leading directly to fat gain. When you drink sugar it skips the part of the brain that tells it calories have been consumed, so you stay hungry – and crave more sugar.

Tip #8 for banishing sugar cravings – Stay hydrated. When you’re dehydrated your body gets depleted of necessary minerals and nutrients and your body will start to crave anything and everything to replenish them. Aim for 2-4 liters per day. Try swapping your coffee or black tea for herbal tea. Try lemon or cucumber infused water!
