To help fight your sweet cravings and cut down on the amount of sugar you consume, train your tongue to hate sweets. Because you have always been a sugar junkie, your taste buds have fallen in love with the taste of sweet foods, so according to nutritionists, practice eating or drinking unsweetened food, including those with a bitter or sour taste, at least ten times per day. Keep up this practice until your taste buds become desensitised to sweet. Soon you will find your craving for sweets is drastically reducing as you start to adopt a low sugar lifestyle.
