Cravings

Question: Why do I crave pastries and sweets so much?

Answer: The most common reason for experiencing cravings is a low blood sugar level.  A stable blood sugar level can only be achieved by having a good balanced diet of complex carbohydrates, essential fats and lean proteins.  However, not all carbohydrates support this goal.  High quality complex carbohydrates like vegetables, beans and brown rice are extremely effective in maintaining a stable blood sugar level.  On the other hand, low-quality refined carbohydrates like sugar-laden foods and white flour products actually provoke a low blood sugar level...which leads to cravings.
