Sugar cravings come from your gut bacteria!
Our gut bacteria is actually communicating to us that they want something. They have a mind of their own! Well, our gut is, in fact, our second brain.
We have a trillion bacteria in our gut and there are different types that actually love different nutrients. Some love carbs, some fibre, and some love fats, for example. When we are not feeding those bacteria what they want, then they get really off and can make us feel like rubbish.
It is really important to have a balance of beneficial bacteria in our gut. And, we need a lot of diversity. That’s why it’s so important to have a very well-balanced diet with variety of whole nutrient-dense foods.
This helps to create the optimal microbiome for health. Remember… 70 percent of our immune system is in our gut. The bacteria in our gut helps us to maintain a healthy digestive tract, metabolize, digest and absorb nutrients.
Our internal gut flora can really help to maximize our immune health, when we treat it well, that is.
Rates of obesity are rising worldwide and added sugar, especially from sugar-sweetened drinks, is thought to be one of the main culprits.
Sugar-sweetened drinks like sodas, juices and sweet teas are loaded with fructose, a type of simple sugar. Consuming fructose increases your hunger and desire for food more than glucose, the main type of sugar found in starchy foods.
Lets beat those cravings.
