Do you experience uncontrollable sugar cravings? It never ceases to amaze me just how many people struggle with sugar cravings.
When I work with clients and help them transition to a traditional foods diet often the sugar cravings stop in a matter of days. For most it really doesn’t take anything more than eating real food with good healthy fats and protein.
However, everyone is different and for some those sugar cravings don’t fade that quickly. When I sense a client will need a little extra support, I always give them the Sugar Buster.
In fact just last week I had a new client drop 9 pounds in two weeks and she credited the Sugar Buster with her success in stopping sugar cravings. I posted her success story on my Facebook page and then asked if anyone knew about the Sugar Buster. No one did but comments came pouring in asking me to please post the recipe. Here’s just a few comments:
“I’d love to know! I always crave chocolate in the afternoons”
“Please share. I can’t stop eating sugar!”
“We’re all waiting! Tell us tell us!”
“Inquiring minds want to know!”
Yes, sugar addiction is very real these days. If you consider yourself a sugar addict, give the Sugar Buster a shot. It certainly can’t hurt to try.
Best of all, it’s sooooooo easy.
Here’s what you do. Get the following three things: coconut oil, a nut butter of your choice and raw honey. Not that you need a picture to figure that out but for the sake of pictures on my blog…
I like Nutiva coconut oil not just because it’s organic but it also has this on the label (which I’m looking for more and more on everything I buy):
Not that coconut oil is ever genetically modified. It’s not. But I still like to support companies that use this label.
As far as nut butters go, just make sure you’re using a good quality organic nut butter and not some rancid vegetable oil-based crap like Jif or Skippy.
And finally, make sure you’re using real, raw honey as most conventional honey really isn’t honey.
You can get real, raw honey here.
So here’s all you do:
You might have to melt the coconut oil a bit to get it to mix well. I did this on a 90 degree day so it wasn’t a problem.
There it is on the left. And yes, it basically just looks like a jar of peanut butter.
The idea here is that the honey will satisfy the sugar craving while the good fats and protein in the nut butter and coconut oil will slow your digestion and satiate you.
So give it a shot and let me know how it goes!
