8. Gymnema Sylvestre

If you are taking any prescription drugs, check with your doctor before consuming, as it can have drug interactions. Otherwise, this supplement is the bomb when it comes to stopping sugar and carb cravings in their tracks. In fact, if you want to stop eating sugar, place a bit of the powder directly on your tongue. This works by making sugar taste like chalk for hours afterwards. The only drawback to this supplement is the amount you need to take to achieve effectiveness, which is about 4 grams (not milligrams, but grams) taken two or three times daily.

 

9. Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Don’t confuse this with L-carnosine; this is an acetylated form of the plain old L-carnitine. This supplement is used to move fatty acids into your cells to be used as energy, which means that it can help your body switch over to burning fat as fuel. You will need between 500 to 2,000mg each day. Start with the minimum and if it doesn’t seem effective, add 500mg each day until those cravings bite the dust.

10. Chromium Picolinate

This supplement helps with the metabolism of glucose, which is the way that you use carbs as fuel. It can also improve your insulin sensitivity. This one stops both carb and sugar cravings. IN one study, subjects that took 600 micrograms of chromium picolinate for the 2 month study period stated that they had significantly reduced carb and sugar cravings. Since chromium stabilized blood sugar levels, this would diminish the desire for those sugar laden and carb rich foods. Chromium picolinate has also been shown in some studies to increase lean body mass.

Bonus Tip:  The University of Toronto published a study in 2005 in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry found that pregnant women who were given high doses of vitamins K, E, D, and A, had a reduced urge to consume sugary foods. Scientists know that the more vitamin D you consume, the less likely that you will develop type 2 diabetes as you age, but it’s not fully understood  how this works. Since pregnant women tend to eat better diets, and consume very high levels of vitamins and minerals, scientists believe that this might be the reason behind their lack of interest in sugar.

      I suppose you could take them all… I’d call that “Lunch”.
