Whatever it is you crave, you just can’t seem to make it go away…

…that is, unless you grab something sweet to satisfy your craving.

So, what exactly do you do to stop this powerful response?

Cause Of Your Cravings

There are a many things that may cause these cravings that destroy your calorie intake – and your weight loss.

But there are really only two things that are responsible for your cravings:

Your brain and low blood sugars!

You see, your brain requires a LOT of sugar to keep it functioning at optimal levels.

And when there is a decrease in sugar to the brain (low blood sugars), then panic mode ensues.

Your brain sends a response to your body, stimulating your hunger for sweet, sugar-filled foods.

Namely desserts, baked goods, pre-packaged sweets, and candy bars!

You would think that if you cut out desserts, junk food, pastries, and donuts than you won’t crave those types of foods anymore, right?

WRONG!

You see, sweet foods may spike your cravings for even more sweet foods. 

However, what you qualify as sweet foods are not the usual culprits.

Foods such as breads, pastas, crackers, and many others contain tons of sugar that can also increase your cravings.

…and boosting your weight loss in the process!
