Some quick tip on overcoming carb. cravings. Many of my patients suffer from this at first and we always recommend gradually reducing them down. I have seen both ways work but transitioning to healthy fats (avocadoes, coconut oils, olive oil, fatty fish. nut butter, almond butter, etc.), grass fed protein and organic fruits and vegetables is the best way to change your pathways from more poor carbohydrate based to healthy fats and proteins. You then augment that with the healthy fruits and vegetables (good carbs).

1) Spice up meals with cinnamon: Balances blood sugar

3) Eat leafy greens, foods high in magnesium: regulate blood sugar levels and are nutrient dense.
4) Eat foods that are high in Chromium (broccoli, sweet potatoes, lean meats): . Chromium regulates blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The body uses chromium to manufacture a substance that helps with sugar metabolism and blood sugar balance — which will also plays a role in keeping your moods and appetite stable.

Cultured vegetables and drinking coconut kefir is a good start. Sour foods contain probiotics which support digestive health.
