10 Supplements That Cut Carb and Sugar Cravings Like Crazy!
When most people try to lose weight, the first two things that go out the window are carbs and/or sugar. Unfortunately, those are the two monsters that most people seem to crave the most. Did anyone ever turn to you and say “I have the worst craving for some steamed broccoli”? Probably not. But how about, “OMG, I would cut off my right arm for a pizza”? Well, we have some good news for you. Cutting those cravings is as simple as taking a vitamin supplement. If you want to lower your carb and sugar intake, shift your body into a fat burning mode (as opposed to a fat storing mode), ensure that the carbs you are consuming do less damage to your hips and thighs, and reduce that urge to snack at night, then it’s simply a matter of finding the right supplement that works with your body. Keep reading for the 10 vitamin supplements that are known to cut cravings so you can stick to that diet and be beach ready by summer time!
You might have heard about this supplement, since it has been all over the news. Resveratrol is a substance found in red wine and red grapes and has been shown to increase lifespan and improve insulin sensitivity. Although everyone wants to live a longer, healthier life, it’s the insulin sensitivity portion of this supplement that we are interested in. Insulin sensitivity means that your body will be better able to use the glucose for immediate energy, rather than store it for later use (fat storage). You need about 100mg each day for this to be effective. Look for the “trans” form of resveratrol, which is the only truly effective form of this supplement.
2. Lipoic Acid
This supplement will help stabilize blood sugar levels, so you don’t get the munchies or get hungry a few hours after eating, as well as step up the utilization of carbohydrates. You will find this in many antioxidant supplements. You need between 50 to 250mg of lipoic acid each day to keep those carb cravings under control.
This is found in many digestive enzyme supplements and works well for those who have drastic blood sugar fluctuations. However, it is also a really helpful dieting tool because it can break down fat in the body and then burn it as fuel. You could simply take an isolated form of lipase, but why not take the entire digestive enzyme supplement just before your 2 largest meals of the day (perhaps before lunch and dinner.) The enzymes will help improve your digestion and the lipase will help break down fat, for a super effective one two punch!
