How to beat sugar cravings!

Why do we get them and how do we combat them?

How to beat sugar cravings!

Most people are familiar with the 3pm slump and craving for sweet food. Afternoon slumps are completely normal- we can't expect our bodies to go full speed ahead from the moment we wake up to when we go to sleep! But why do we crave sweet food? This is likely because the brain uses carbohydrates for energy. Sweet foods like lollies and sugary drinks contain high GI carbohydrates which are broken down quickly for the brain to use as energy. However, although they provide a quick fix, this energy burst is short lived and often we are back to our groggy tired selves shortly after a sugar rush. So to stop oursleves reaching for high sugar quick-fix foods, what can we do to combat these cravings?

Goals - are you on track?

We set them in January...now it's June!

Goals - are you on track?

Did you set goals in January? I certainly did; I was spurred into action after returning from 10 days of full-on training as a Reformer Pilates instructor to create some focus for my year. My focus was to target my health, my fitness, quality of life and balance. Six months down the track there are plenty of things I've managed to 'tick off' but there remains a few vital goals I haven't managed to keep the spotlight on. I hope this blog helps you reflect on yourself and what change is required!
