Getting Clear from Sugar Addiction

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.
