Because instead of fat, we’ve been replacing it with sugar. And many people believe this has led to the current diabetes and obesity epidemic. The truth is that your body needs some fat. But there is a difference between fats. Strive to eat plant-based fats. For example, fats from avocados, coconuts, and nuts are all great for you. Fats from fish are too. And fat from grass-fed beef is good for you as well.
After a week or two of clean eating your cravings will go away. They are often part of the withdrawal process. There are tricks that you can embrace to make the cravings go away. For example, did you know that healthy fats beat sugar cravings? Eat half an avocado or put coconut milk cream in your coffee. You won’t want sugar anymore and you’ll be satisfied.
