I’ve made it to Day TEN with no booze or soda since the beginning of my Dry January Challenge and guess what?
The sugar cravings have set in.
I think my body is going into a wee sugar withdrawl from what I used to get from alcohol and soda. Giving up alcohol hasn’t been so bad at all. Everyone I know has cut back after the holidays that doing a Dry January hasn’t been too difficult.
Soda, I realize is a habit I could easily fall back into. Especially when I’m at a party or eating certain foods. My body actually craves a soda to contrast anytime I’m eating really salty or greasy food – which I have also been cutting back on.
This one has been a harder battle, but I’ve stuck mainly to flavoured sparkling water, lemon water, kombucha and drinking LOTS of tea.
I find myself wanting to eat more sweets like cookies, cupcakes and things I usually don’t crave all the time. So I’ve tried to swap in more fruit like apple slices and bananas – but it’s hard.
So I want to know, how you stop sugar cravings?
