Hello Bharat

Due to regular consumption of a high-fat diet, basic nutrients are difficult to absorb which is the reason for getting unhealthy cravings like these. the best thing is to keep your eating habits fixed and the food, light in nature in order to the nutrients to get completely absorbed in the body.

These are some guidelines that will help you deal with this multi-dimensional problem in an effective manner. 


Start your day with something light in nature and easy to digest. Your breakfast should be of the kind of nutrients that get absorbed easily.Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water will help in flushing out all the toxins. The next thing is including a fibre-rich food item that helps in adding bulk to the stools, for example having apples, bananas, nuts, etc. which has a good amount of fiber in them.

Seeds are a good source of vitamins. Flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds are easily available. At evenings, one tablespoon of chia seeds soaked in water with one tablespoon of lemon juice will be a rich combination for vitamin absorption.


  • A brisk walk in early morning sun from 30-45 minutes helps in treating your body to its level best. Sun is a great source of Vitamin D which will also help us effectively in absorbing nutrients in the body that is why walking in the sun and connecting with the sun also help in activating our cells and rejuvenate us for the whole day.


In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it. But with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything. The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleep with the help of music to stay positive.

Hello Bharat,

Post meal sugar cravings may be due to increased production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter which is associated with mood elevation. Sugary desserts cause serotonin levels to rise, which make us feel happier, calmer and satisfied. Uneven blood sugar levels after meal may also trigger these cravings.
If you can have only one bite and stop there, indulging a little when you get a craving is absolutely fine.
But if you tend to binge and overeat as soon as you get a taste of sugary foods, then giving in to the cravings is the worst thing you can do.
Here are some tips to avoid sweet cravings-

If you are hungry, eat a healthy and filling meal 

  • Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. 
  • Have only plant based natural foods in your meals.
  • Eat freshly prepared salads.
  • Include sprouts, beans and nuts in your diet.

Have hot shower

People having sugar cravings have found that hot showers or baths provide releif.

Let the water run over your back and shoulders so that it heats you up.

Go for a brisk walk

Another thing that you can do is go for a walk. If you can run then running will be even better.

This will serve two purposes.

First, it will keep you away from the food that you are craving for.

Secondly, the exercise will release endorphins or feel good chemicals in your brain which can help turn the craving off.

Other things that will help

  • Avoid artificial sweeteners. 
  • Don't starve yourself. 
  • Avoid excess stress.
  • Take a proper quality sleep. 
  • Drink sufficient water during the day. 

Thank you
