So to stop craving sugar you must cut the refined carbs and sugars out of your diet. When you think of sugar you think of candy bars, chocolate, donuts, cakes, cookies, candy, M&M’s, all of those sugary treats.
But did you know that the refined carbohydrates turn to simple sugars just as quickly and are hard to digest causing fat storage. These foods are much harder to detect and are laden with other sweeteners which can cause weight gain. Namely high fructose corn syrup.
Foods that contain corn syrup are many and varied and it can become a little tricky but if your determined to become healthier and burn more fat it is necessary to stop ingesting these useless foods and to stop the sugar cravings. These foods are:
Sodas, juices, candies, syrups, pasta sauces, cookies, cakes, energy bars, baked goods, cereals, yogurt, ketchup, frozen foods, baby formula, salad dressing and breakfast cereals.
