2. Increase protein
If you are craving sugar, by increasing protein your cravings will be much easier to handle. You need to eat complete protein at every meal, especially breakfast, and healthy high protein snacks in between meals if you feel the need.
Some, like myself (of slender build), will continue eating like this indefinitely and feel great. Others may choose to decrease their protein intake once their sugar cravings are under control.
Two eggs for breakfast is ideal, with a piece of kamut or spelt sourdough bread, for toast if you like. As long as the yolks are runny - soft boiled or poached - there is a negligible effect on cholesterol. By having a full breakfast you will feel more fully satisfied all day long. Make sure your other meals are high in protein as well.
