Controlling Your Sweet Tooth

We all like to indulge once in awhile and many people have cravings for sweets now and again. Eating sweet and sugary foods in moderation is perfectly fine, but there is a lot of concern when eating sweets occur almost every day. This can lead to diabetes, obesity and a host of other health issues. Not many people are aware that sugar is in many of the products they are eating already, aside from the cookies and candy that they are indulging in. Condiments, juices, crackers and more all have plenty of sugar in them and can be avoided. Luckily, there are some more natural and healthy ways that you can satisfy that sweet tooth next time you are experiencing a craving. McGalla has given a few of these a try.

Educate Yourself

Fruit is a big one. Fructose sugars from fruit are natural and are much healthier for you than the refined kind. Also, if you are going to eat a sweet treat, learn to read labels and keep your serving of sugar under 10 grams per serving.

Find Alternatives
There are a number of foods that taste sweet but really are not and you can eat these to indulge. Peanut butter and other nut butters are a common favorite that make you feel like you are eating something sinful. To be even healthier, you can dip apple slices in peanut butter as a snack or treat.
