A balanced nutrition is important for maintaining the regular function of all the structures in the body. While many people follow restricted diets, most commonly centered around weight loss, following the discipline closely and avoiding the cravings can be challenging. These nutritional goals are not impossible to achieve although, starting out by detoxifying the body can help.

First and foremost, in order to detox your body, one must begin by breaking the sugar cycle. A large variety of food products today contain large amounts of sugar and other additives that while they aren’t the healthiest choice for your, they are often preferred over the healthier options. Ultimately, the key to detox the body of sugar is to simply avoid consuming it all together rather than moderating its consumption. Sugar stimulates cravings which can lead people to eat more and in turn stimulate more cravings. Sugar intakes create an unhealthy cycle that can make healthy eating habits difficult. If you can avoid sugar for three full days, your cravings will improve and settle down.

After you’ve dealt with the sugar cravings, detoxifying the body of salt should follow. The majority of people find that once the sugar in their body is under control, salt cravings become more manageable. At this point in the detox, it’s important to avoid the consumption of foods containing large amounts of salt for a couple of weeks. The goal of this type of detox is to maintain an individual’s cravings under control in order to avoid making poor nutritional choices.

Once you’ve broken the sugar/salt cycle and your cravings are either out of your system or at least manageable, it’s time to start adding more salads, soups, and veggies into your diet while also gradually decreasing the consumption of bread. After all, bread cravings are only sugar cravings in disguise and, like with the above sugar and salt detox, you must also learn to manage bread cravings. After completing the detox, fill up your daily meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, as well as whole grains and a smaller portion of dairy products and you would have achieved your health goals and managed unhealthy food cravings.
