An irresistible, almost out of control desire that often shows up at night only to leave you with a heavy load of guilt and shame the next day, known as nightly sugar cravings!
Firstly, they’re way more common than you think, so please believe me when I say you’re not the only one.
Secondly, there are ways and solutions that can help you reduce and/or eliminate your nightly cravings, mindfully.
Here are my top 3 tips:
1- Eat regularly scheduled meals and snacks during the day
Skipping meals can cause your blood sugar level to drop, which then causes major changes in your blood sugar levels throughout the day and can lead to sugar cravings at night as your body is in a quest for more energy.
Prioritize fueling your body during the day with wholesome protein, fats, and fiber and do your best to plan your meals ahead of time, to reduce decision fatigue.
2- Eat more Magnesium rich food
When you’re in a constant state of low-grade stress (ex: work, busy schedules, traffic, etc.) your body’s magnesium resource gets depleted which leads to the increase of a stress hormone called cortisol.
Elevated levels of cortisol may cause an increased craving for sugary foods.
Eat more magnesium-rich foods during the day to help balance your stress hormones and reduce sugar cravings at night:
- Black beans
- Peanut butter
3- Don’t restrict yourself during the day
A restrictive diet that eliminates full food groups can often lead to sugar cravings at night, your body’s way of telling you that it needs more nutrients and calories.
Make sure you’re getting a wide variety of wholesome foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and protein in your earlier meals.
