Dr. Oz Explains How to Cut Down Sugar Cravings in Two Weeks
2 Natural Ways To Stop Sugar Cravings
Is taming your sweet tooth your top New Year's resolution? I have two suggestions that should help:
1. Try gymnema
This vine, native to India, seems to reduce sugar cravings. Add 30 to 40 drops of gymnema tincture (sold at health food stores) to a little water, swish in your mouth for 30 seconds, and then swallow. Repeat every 2 or 3 hours as needed. Because gymnema works only when it comes in contact with the tongue, extracts in pills or capsules won't work.
2. Take bitters
Bitters may counteract your craving for sweets. Shake a few drops into water or club soda. I love urban Moonshine's elixirs. You can also try angostura bitters from the supermarket.
