Eat Sweet Veggies and Whole Fruit
The sweetest whole food is fresh, ripe fruit. When eaten in this form, the natural sugars of the fruit are accompanied with the exact combination of enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and fiber that your body needs for healthy digestion and optimal utilization. Naturally sweet vegetables, like yams, parsnips, carrots and beets offer the same benefit. When eaten regularly, their mellow, sweet flavor can help to curb sugar cravings.

Chew Well
When whole grains and other complex carbohydrates are properly prepared and chewed well, they release a natural sweetness that calms the nervous system and alleviates the desire for excess sweets.

Balance Protein and Carbs

Protein and carbohydrate metabolism regulate one another and it's important to keep them in good balance. When you eat concentrated proteins (like meat and cheese) in excess, you'll naturally crave excessive quantities of concentrated sweets. On the other hand, if you don't get enough protein you may also find yourself with sugar cravings.
