Combat chocolate cravings
Need to banish those chocolate cravings? We've got a few tips to take your mind off the sweet stuff.
Drink a glass of water
This helps fill you up, and will take your mind off chocolate.
Go for a walk
Even if it’s just to the printer and back.
Chew sugar-free gum
A low calorie, inexpensive snack. It will help keep your gums and teeth healthy and freshens your breath too.
Try something bitter
This will overwhelm the sweetness craving! We find a glass of lemon water works every time.
Keep fruit handy
Swapping out the chocolate for some fruit when those cravings hit means you'll get fibre and nutrients along with your sweet fix.
Long gaps between meals may make you want to snack on sugary, chocolately foods.
Get a guilt-free treat
