Finally, the World Health Organization is catching on. Hopefully the AMA and FDA will be soon to follow. This past week, the World Health Organization advised cutting the amount of sugar in your diet by half. The announcement came on the heals of Britain’s chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies suggesting a sugar tax may be needed to curb obesity rates in the UK. However, it’s unlikely that parliament will act.
To view a microcosm of what processed sugar can quickly do the health of a particular community, just take a look at the obesity and diabetes rates of Inuit cultures of North America. Since 1992, which was when American fast food chains began popping up in Inuit regions of Canada and Alaska, obesity rates have skyrocketed from under 2% to greater than 15%. Inuits traditionally have a high fat, high protein diet, with little to no sugar in their diet. I wrote about this in my book, HCG 2.0 – A Modern Adaption of the Traditional HCG Diet.
How do eliminate sugar cravings?
So now that someone is finally paying attention, the question becomes how do we eliminate sugar from our diet? Is it as simple as merely giving up sugar? Can you just say no? That’s unlikely. if it were that simple we would have done it by now. The problem is that taste is an acquired sense. Over the years we’ve become accustomed to the Standard American Diet, appropriately accronym’d SAD. The SAD diet is full of processed sugars and starches, which are very high in calories, but extremely low in nutritional value. As a result of eating an overabundance of these foods, we acquired taste for them. Take chocolate for example. There is the SAD kind of chocolate, the highly processed, high sugar, version that is found in gas stations and in vending machines. Then there is real chocolate, now called Dark Chocolate, that uses only natural flavors and sweetness from the cocoa itself. Dark chocolate doesn’t have the same extraordinary sweetness as the SAD chocolate, but if you were to give in Inuit child a piece of it they would find it sweet delicious because they’re unaccustomed to these delicacies. However if you give it’s given to our American counterpart on the SAD diet, they’d likely find it bitter and spit it out. Processed chocolate, sugary drinks and cereals, all contribute to a dependency on sweets. Until we can un-acquire a taste for sweets, we will continue to crave them. This is the real issue. The answer isn’t replacing your sugary foods and drinks with zero-cal, zero-carbs substitutes, that are equally as sweet, because it’s not addressing the real issue. It’s puts a bandaid over it, but it fails to address the real problem. This is commonplace in American medicine. We all want t quick fix. We want a prescription to address our pain and another script to address the side-effects of our pain. America makes up about 5% of the worlds population, but we consume 65% of the worlds prescription drugs. And if you think that makes us more healthy than the rest of the world, think again. We are currently the ONLY non-third-world country with a decreasing life expectancy. We’re actually quite sick. who reduces sugar cravings on hcg diet
So now that we’ve established the fact that we CANNOT simply replace our sweet cereal and sugary drinks with zero-calorie alternatives, what do we do? Let’s start simple and work our way into the more complex issues… sugar cravings on hcg
Start be eliminating all soda and zero calorie alternatives. Switch to coffee or tea. Not bottled, but brewed fresh. Begin by using small amounts of Stevia. It doesn’t have to be bitter, but not sweet either. We’re trying to ween us off of the sweets. Gradually you’ll begin to require less and less. hcg diet to reduce sugar cravings
Eliminate all sugary cereals and breakfast foods. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it should ALWAYS include 20-30 grams of protein – closer to 20 grams for women and 30 grams for men. Also keep your morning carbs below 10 grams. This ratio of protein to carbs allows you to jumpstart your metabolism with a low-glycemic, high protein breakfast that satisfies without adding unnecessary fuel that would only be converted into unwanted fat.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 each and every day and you’ve just cut your sugar intake half. Well done!
