Recommendations for Sugar Craving:
 
 
Diet  Fructose Avoidance/reduction
 If you take a sugar holiday for even a couple of weeks, you will find that sugar cravings will diminish. Fructose consumption in large amounts results in craving for more. Cravings decrease when fructose intake is low.

Research from the University of California at San Francisco indicates that fructose can trick our brains into craving more food, even when we’re full. It works by impeding the body’s ability to use leptin, the “satiation hormone” that tells us when we’ve had enough to eat.

  Dairy Products Avoidance
 Some people claim that their sugar craving was reduced or eliminated upon discontinuing dairy products.
