Eat foods high in Magnesium

To fight sugar cravings, eating foods high in magnesium like beans and nuts and whole grains such as brown rice and 100% whole wheat can help regulate blood sugar levels. Also, green leafy vegetables such as spinach and chard (about 154-157 milligrams per cup) carry an incredible amount of magnesium.

Consume healthy fats

Healthy fats like avocados, nuts and seeds, help to regulate your blood sugar helping to reduce your stress levels and sugar cravings. My favorite is lightly salted avocado toast or 1/4 chopped avocado with seasoned quinoa, veggies, and legumes.

Please stay hydrated
