Do you also crave for sugar after lunch? Making following modifications might help you to beat sugar cravings

It is natural to have, and also give into sugar cravings once in a while. But doing so on an everyday basis can be harmful for health

As such, a good way to overpower such cravings is to understand and analyse your diet and be mindful

You ate too much starch and not enough fat and/or protein - Add more legumes, tofu, paneer to your diet⁣ ⁣

Deficiencies in certain minerals may lead to sugar cravings - minerals such as zinc, magnesium & potassium

Vitamin D or B12 deficiency - one of the major reasons which impacts absorption of nutrients in your body

High stress levels - chronic stress, or poorly managed stress, may lead to elevated cortisol levels that stimulate your appetite

Lack of proper sleep can increase appetite by changing hormones, making us more likely to eat sugary foods⁣⁣
