Why Am I Craving Sweets

Nov 14, 2021
 

Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle approach we can use to help to balance out hunger hormones and reduce or eliminate sugar cravings.

Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle approach we can use to help to balance out hunger hormones and reduce or eliminate sugar cravings.

Leptin, the body’s satiety hormone, primarily controls your appetite and how much of your food’s energy is stored as fat.

Leptin works by a negative feedback loop. When there is MORE LEPTIN you will have a DECREASED APPETITE.

Leptin has also been shown to be a suppressor of sweet taste perception or craving. When you have higher leptin levels, you are less likely to crave sweets.

This negative feedback loop is enhanced when you practice an intermittent fasting lifestyle.

When you are consistently fasting, your LEPTIN levels rise and GHRELIN (your hunger hormone) is lowered.

As more and more of the leptin hormone is secreted in the body, leptin will signal your taste receptors to crave less sweet food.

Balancing out your hunger hormones will re-establish your body’s response to normal levels of leptin and may be a two in one approach to weight loss and reducing sugar consumption and cravings.

Tools to use to help trick your Growling Ghrelin:

  • Carbonated Mineral Water
  • Water
  • Black coffee
  • Tea (no flavors)

Hungry is not a bad thing. Hungry is where the MAGIC happens.  We just need to understand what HUNGRY means for us.

Fast long. Feast well. Train smart. Be authentically you.
