So I have found a technique I’d like to share for stopping or short circuiting the craving for sugar.
Keep a bag of Almonds hanging around. When the craving hits , eat about 6 – 8. Chew them well. These will last about 20 min. The craving will hit again and another 6 – 8 . This should stabilize either the physiological or psychological need to indulge in a sugar snack which can become a never ending cycle.
