Breaking up with Sugar ....continued

Step 12
12. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you
Hormones, emotions, and memories can create a Pavlovian-like response to sugary comfort foods — a sensory cue that causes us to crave. This is why even the aroma of cookies baking can cause a sugar craving to kick in. Acknowledge these moments for what they are when they happen, and move on. On the flip side, it’s OK to indulge from time to time. Just don’t let the craving and indulgence control you.
I’ve been known to walk into the office holding a chocolate chip cookie or a Rice Krispy treat and say, “Exhibit A: This my friends is emotional eating. But, I’m aware and I’m going to enjoy and acknowledge it and still have my grilled salmon and asparagus for dinner.” True story. It happens.
There you have it: 12 simple, though not necessarily simple to do, steps to help you break up with sugar. A successful sugar break up should be focused on moderation and being mindful about what you really want. I can’t promise the process will be easy. But I can promise that by following these steps, you can dramatically reduce the amount of sugar in your diet. And, with that, you’ll likely up your energy, improve the glow of your skin, reduce bloat, sleep better, think more clearly, and perhaps improve your immune system too.

Step 11
Keep it interesting
A diet filled with the same foods day after day is almost guaranteed to leave you unsatisfied and craving a sugar fix. Avoid OD’ing on candy corn by upping the variety of foods and drinks in your diet.
Purchase some in-season produce and put it to good use. I love eggplant in the late summer and early fall months for its versatility and super nutrients. I throw it on the grill, bake it, or use it to make baba ganoush and put it on everything, from whole grain crackers to lettuce for a superfast and delicious salad. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, try this Low-Carb Eggplant Pizza by the Diet Doctor.
