But here are some tips to fight the withdrawal sugar without effort: the tips are ideal for restaurants that would eat chocolate & co. at all hours!
Chewing Gum Sugar Free
Several research studies show that chewing sugar-free chewing gum helps keep hunger at bay, especially during the afternoon, one of the most critical hunger pangs and sugar cravings.
Remove the Temptation Walk
You are in abstinence from sugar? Put on your shoes and go take a walk: walking helps to keep at bay the need for sugar, and also burns calories and keeps you in shape.
Take a break of 7 Minutes
This is a very Zen suggestion: whenever you get the urge to attack the chocolate chip cookies, take a break of 7 minutes. Think about why you want the cookies, what change, if they make a real difference and what will result in terms of calories and fat. Most likely, after those 7 minutes zen you will not want to abbuffarti of biscuits.
