I know sweets are bad for me, but why do I crave them all the time?
Sweet cravings can signal a blood sugar imbalance. Addressing the imbalance can curb your cravings.
Consider reactive hypoglycemia
We like sweets—sugar, honey, agave, maple syrup, and fruit—because they give us a burst of energy and even make us feel euphoric. But feeling like you can’t live without them can signal a blood sugar disorder, a risk for diabetes later in life.
It seems all my attempts to lose weight and get rid of my belly fat fail. Is there hope for me?
Absolutely. Normal attempts at weight loss can fail if you’re battling any metabolic disorders.
When you are doing all the right things but still not losing weight you may have some health issues sabotaging your efforts.
Issues that can hinder weight loss:
- Chronic inflammation
- Food intolerances
- High cortisol
- Insulin resistance
