Note from Aubrey:
Sugar addiction is real and it creates a perfect breeding ground for candida and a whole host of other physical symptoms.
If you are craving sweets; look at the energetic. Sometimes our bodies crave sweets because we are aren't taking sweet enough care of our sacred selves. Where could you be sweeter to you? A bath, hike, time with a friend, tea, time to journal. Reach for the ways you can fill your cup over the sugar rush.
Reduce caffeine and carbonated beverages. The ups and downs of drinking caffeine can include dehydration and blood sugar swings, and may cause sugar cravings to become more frequent.
Drink water. Sometimes sweet cravings are a sign of dehydration. Grab a glass of water before you reach for any sweet.
Use gentle sweets. Avoid artificial sweeteners; they are packed with chemicals. Use natural sweeteners like maple syrup, stevia, and honey.
Get active. Start simple with stretching, walking, or yoga. Start with 10 minutes a day and gradually increase. Moving your body helps balance blood sugar levels, boosts energy, and reduces tension which will eliminate the desire to self-medicate with sugar!
Get more sleep, rest and relaxation. If you are in a chronic state of stress and sleep deprivation, your body will crave the quickest form of energy there is: sugar. Which also means you will have a blood sugar crash and then end up even more exhausted. Stay clear.
