The Best Foods to Crush Sugar Cravings

1. Nuts

The protein and fat content naturally found in nuts, coupled with a nice amount of fiber, help to stabilize blood sugar and create satiety, or that feeling of fullness and satisfaction

2. Avocado

Just like nuts, avocados stabilize your blood sugar and can be an excellent preventative measure to craving sweets

3. Fruit

It's normal to crave something sweet, especially because your body thrives on a certain amount of sugar every day.

4. Whole milk dairy like yogurt

A quality yogurt contains natural milk sugar and is a good source of protein and fat, so the combo can satisfy sweets cravings

5. Berries

Berries have a high water content and are a good source of fiber, which helps you to feel fuller longer, balance blood sugar, and improve insulin sensitivity

6. Pistachios

A study published in July 2020 in Nutrients found eating pistachios was associated with a decrease in consumption of sweets, and weight loss in adults with obesity or who were overweight.

7. Oats

Avoid instant oatmeal packets, which are highly processed and high in added sugars, and stick with rolled old-fashioned oats or steel-cut oats instead

8. Sweet Potatoes

Roast them, bake them, or make sweet potato fries in the air fryer, but be sure to eat the skin, which is rich in nutrients, including fiber.

9. Chia Seeds

A small study published in October 2017 in Nutrition Research and Practice found consuming chia seeds with yogurt increased satiety and reduced cravings for sugary foods. 

10. Sesame Seeds

Seeds such as sesame seeds have healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, as well as fiber, which combat sugar cravings.
