Beat your sweet tooth!
Wish your sweet tooth didn't keep sabotaging your trying to lose weight?
Well now you have an answer - Develop a BITTER Tooth instead! How does it work? You can shut down your brain's desire for sugar with something BITTER A drop or two of bitters could keep those sugar cravings in check.
Research ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3806211/ ) has found that consuming bitter foods shuts down the receptors in our brains that drive us to eat sugar.
Bitter foods and plants can help slow the absorption of sugar and regulate blood sugar levels. Bitter foods also help suppress the appetite and have a positive effect on healthy eating habits and calorie intake. This is because consuming bitter food stimulates the release of hormones like PYY and GLP-1. These hormones are responsible for controlling the appetite and keeping cravings at bay ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2943060/ )
Almost all bitters will work, as long as they contain bittering agents and not just aromatics. Common bittering agents include artichoke leaf, burdock root, dandelion root, citrus peel, licorice root, gentian root and wormwood. You can buy bitters like Swedish or German Bitters from your local health food store and some supermarkets in the health food aisle, or you could just get some bitter herbs and stick them in your juicer! All the best! Let us know how you go with overcoming those sugar cravings.
We'd love to hear some success stories.
