Avoiding Sugar Shock

Let's talk about what to do when you have a craving for sugar. Everybody gets them sometimes - I know I do! For many people, their 'sweet tooth' is what gets them into trouble with their diet and hampers their progress.

If you have been eating your weekly Cheat Meal Alternatives that I have provided, you shouldn't be suffering too much with cravings.

If you're dying to have something sweet and can't wait until your next cheat meal day, here are some helpful hints:

  • Sugar cravings are usually a result of low blood sugar. The best way to get your blood sugar stabilized is by eating one of your balanced Lean Body Meals consisting of a protein and a complex carb.
  • If you've just eaten and you're still experiencing a sugar craving, then wait a few minutes.
  • If the craving doesn't subside, try satisfying it with a small amount of a low-sugar fruit, such as an apple or fresh berries.
  • If it's not time for your next meal, try drinking a small protein shake.

Be careful not to let cravings spin out of control and lead you into a food binge, which can ruin a week's worth of progress. If you ever do binge, stop as soon as possible and get back on your diet. That's not giving you permission to binge-binging is bad news for your program.

The Workout

Chest/Shoulders/Triceps Workout

Make sure you get a good solid meal within an hour of finishing your workout.

For example, get a small post-workout shake into your body as soon as you finish working out. Later on, you should eat a full meal with protein, carbohydrates, and a small amount of healthy fats.

This will fully replenish your muscles and get them ready to hit the gym on the next day.
