1. Fruit Juices – Most of the world is fooled into thinking that drinking fruit juice is a great way to be healthy and lose weight. But the fact is that this just isn’t true. Grape juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, apple juice—they all almost instantly spike your blood sugar levels and cause cravings for more sugar. Even worse, processed juices are stuffed with High Fructose Corn Syrup and Crystalline Fructose which cause even more powerful cravings than regular sugar. Eat fruit instead. The fibre in whole fruit slows down the release of insulin and holds cravings at bay.
2. Bread – Most breads today are stripped of all its natural fibre and nutritional value. It acts just like sugar in your body and gets stored quickly in your fat cells.
Another fact is that wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar. In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar MORE than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth based on blood sugar response testing that’s documented in studies. These spikes in blood sugar will leave you tired, grumpy and craving more!!!
3. Most Cereals – Take a look at most cereal boxes and you will see a TON of sugar in every serving—and most people eat two or three servings in a bowl. Then they wonder why they’re hungry an hour or so later. Check the labels and stick to cereals that have a lot of natural fibre and lower sugar. Equal amounts of fibre and sugar will help reduce cravings. What’s more, natural oatmeal is a great choice with a little cinnamon, natural sweetener (honey/xylitol) and a couple blueberries. It’s loaded with fibre with some good fats and proteins.
