Conor McGregor’s dietitian ought to be the one to be able to advise you on how to curb your sugar cravings.
His name is George Lockhart, and he is a nutrition specialist advising top sporting heroes on what they can or can’t eat.
That’s why when it comes down to kicking your sugar habit once and for all it stands to reason that he is a man to trust.
Many resources raise an arguable statement that the white substance is more addictive than cocaine in every aspect and it’s pretty hard to quit.
But the fighting food guru has the answer, in the simple brown form of cinnamon.
George explained: “It’s kind of like a catch-22 because sugar kind of craves sugar.”
“The more sugar you eat, the more sugar you’re going to want. A lot of times if you’re not even hungry you’ll taste something like a little piece of a candy… and be like ‘yeah, I want more.'”
“It’s like the never-ending thirst.”
As for us it’s bizarre to think the innocent food item we have knocking around at the back of our store cupboards, could actually be the key to saying goodbye to the white stuff, once and for all.
He simply advises you to add a spoonful of cinnamon to some water, enjoy and feel your cravings ebb away.
It sounds unlikely, but apparently, this is the way forward if sugar cravings are clawing at your soul.
According to George, the cinnamon helps to regulate insulin levels, causing them to “flatline”, meaning you’re less likely to start reaching for the sweet stuff, than when they’re spiking all over the place.
