Fighting Sugar Cravings

Dr. Oz was on Good Morning America this morning talking about how to battle sugar cravings. Here are some of his suggestions.

Step 1: Replace grains with broccoli or cauliflower for one week, and eat garlic, chives and leeks.
Step 2: For withdrawal, take a Vitamin B complex and 1,000 mg a day of chromium picolinate.
Step 3: Eat meat in a 4:1 ratio, limiting it to a quarter of your protein. Also eat leafy greens and citrus.
Step 4: Address emotional eating: Emotional hunger is sudden, while physical hunger is gradual.

Starting on Monday February 7, Dr. Oz will be addressing emotional hunger and how to deal with it. Tune in all next week for tips.
