Stop Carbohydrate Cravings

Carbohydrate cravings can lead a diva to eating high-glycemic foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, commercial baked products and sweets.
When we eat these foods our the food is digested quickly and causes a rapid spike in blood-sugar
This then triggers mother load of insulin which then causes our blood sugar to drop into the hypo-glycemic range….. and can cause us to feel sleepy after having a Big Ole’ Greasy Burger! It sure was good though … sigh ….
This leads to the release of stress hormones which drives the blood sugar back to normal but leaves us with an uncontrollable hunger which makes us want to eat again!
Remember 4am Breakfast after drinking all night back in the clubbing days ring a bell?
Usually we will crave another high-glycemic meal or snack continuing on this vicious cycle.
If you start the day off eating a high glycemic meal, you may eat upto 80% more calories in the day.
It is important to observe whether you are spiking your blood sugar with your food choices.
Switching to low- glycemic eating will kick-back those carb cravings and help you control your appetite which may help you lose weight as a pleasant side effect 🙂
