Take the Sugar Quiz before reading this article.

Congratulations on wanting to break those sugar addictions! You’re taking a wonderful step in retaining or upgrading your health.

But before you drop sweets totally first do some things to build yourself up nutritionally to help you be more successful in breaking those sugar addictions.

Once you have replenished some of the nutrients your body needs, you most likely will not have such strong sugar cravings. If you think you do not crave sugar, try going completely off all sweets for 5 days. Remember to read labels. Sugar is hidden in many, many processed foods.

Better yet just eat according to the Get Healthy eating plan in Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. See how your body responds.

You may discover hidden sugar cravings. These cravings were not evident before because you were daily consuming sugar whether you recognized it in your food or not. When you eliminate all sugar, sweets from your diet, your sugar addictions become obvious to you.

Breaking sugar addiction may be difficult at first. Work through the process of eliminating sweets from your diet as a family or with a buddy.

None of us can abruptly change eating habits that may have been in our families for generations. But you can make a difference now to yourself, your children, grandchildren and the generations to follow. I will support you through this process in providing resources.

Changing your mind set is the first step in freedom from the bondage of ill health. You can make a difference in the state of your health. You are not a victim.

Congratulations on breaking out of the deception about sugar and being willing to change. My Healthy Habits article may help you with your mind set.

Consider Starting Here to Overcome Sugar Addiction

1. Replenish your vitamins and minerals in a concentrated whole food supplement form such as Chlorella or another Superfood.

2. Be diligent in adding essential fatty acids to your diet. At first you probably need fatty acid supplements because your cells have been deficient in them for so long. Take both omega-3 fats and omega-6 fats to balance your fatty acid needs.

Omega 3 can be supplemented with flax seed oil, 1 to 2 tablespoons per day, or Flax oil capsules or fish oil capsules. If you’re digestive abilities are strong enough to handle eating nuts and seeds, include pumpkin seeds, ground flax seeds, and walnuts in your diet.

The best omega-6 oil supplement is evening primrose oil because it already contains GLA. Some of us may not be able to convert the omega-6 food we eat into GLA. Evening Primrose Oil bypasses this conversion step for us.

3. Try taking Ambrotose. Won’t you feel great if it helps you overcome your sugar cravings? (It can support your body, immune system and nervous system in a lot of other ways too.)

4. Eat a balanced diet according to your metabolic type as directed in Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook.

5. Eat smaller balanced meals 5-6 times per day to slowly drip glucose into your blood. Smaller, more frequent meals take the stress off the glands and allow them to regenerate.

Dr. Jo tells you how to create 5-6 meals per day the easy way in Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook. Order yours now!

Smoothing out the swings in blood sugar helps suppress your sugar cravings because you are avoiding dropping into low blood sugar reactions.

6. Have fun reacquiring sensitive taste buds. Once you are totally off sugar, other foods will start tasting much better to you.

7. Stop eating all sugars and concentrated sweets. Congratulations!
