  1. Eat more protein, fibre and good fats like coconuts, avocados and almonds
  2. Take out white sugar, white flour and white rice – reduce your carbohydrates generally!
  3. Eat foods high in chromium, as this helps improve insulin efficiency. Foods high in chromium include eggs, broccoli, tomatoes, black pepper, green beans and romaine lettuce.
  4. Increase foods high in vitamin C, like berries, lemons, limes, parsley and red capsicum.
  5. Eat more magnesium rich foods like buckwheat and brown rice, especially if sugar cravings occur before periods.
  6. De-stress without using food! Call a friend, have an aromatherapy bath, go for a walk, indulge in a hobby or a good book.
  7. Ginseng tea, mulberry leaf tea, cinnamon tea and bitter melon in cooking help lower blood sugar.
  8. The herb saffron also helps curb sugar cravings, but use it sparingly!
  9. Exercise using a combination of cardiovascular, resistance and stretching exercises.
  10. Get everything out of the house that contains sugar. Don’t worry about the kids, housemates, or partners – it’s not good for them either! Put it all in the bin, take a deep breath and look forward to healthier path!
