Are you curbing your sugar cravings with NO SUGAR TREATS?

IsoMalto-Oligosachharides (IMO’s) are the SECOND ingredient in Smart Sweets. What are they?

It is a chain of DIGESTABLE and NON-DIGESTABLE sachhardies (carbohydrates). They are naturally occuring in Miso, Saki, soy sauce and honey, in VERY small quantities. The non-digestable part cannot be broken down in the small intestine, and when it reaches the large intestine it is fermented by your gut flora. In small quantities naturally occuring in food, you may not notice the addition of gas, bloating, and pain. BUT in large quantites, like when added to foods like the smart sweets…you may experience these undesirable GI symptoms. Research also shows these IMO’s can cause an insulin spike 5x greater then regular sugar!! Watch out for these foods marketed as the “healthier” option.

If you are having a sweet craving, instead of honouring it with a “healthier” marketed food like the smart sweets, Try:

1. Honor your craving. Maybe not all the time, but including sweet/savory food 10-15% of the time is NOT bad. It’s moderation and totally healthy!

2. If you regularly have cravings…why not try to find the root cause of that craving? It might be due to

  • not eating enough during the day
  • feeling stressed/overwhelmed
  • fatigued/lack of sleep
  • bored?
  • Is it a habit? Is having a meal followed by something sweet something you have always habitually done? When you are stressed do you get a quick fix with something sweet? If yes, your body is trained to CRAVE this sweet. See you if you can break the habit!
