Sugar is like narcotic, it drag us in and it is hard to free of him. The only way is complete resignation of this sweet ingredient.
Sugar is not essential in our body, even opposite, it causes overweight or dental caries. However, sweets stimulates our brain to release endorphins, which give us the feel of happiness – it is addicting.
A moment after eating a candy or bar, we also fell energy bust, but it is very short, and soon we have appetite for another one. Instant cut off sweets, or sweet coffee/tea is very hard, and it is quite probable that you won’t manage and eat even more sugar than usually.
So if you want something sweet choose dark chocolate instead, or sweet fruits. Fruits, in spite of having a lot of sugar, have also a lot of vitamins.
When you try to break the habit of eating sweets, avoid every tempting places such as candy shops, also try not to keep sweets at home. Moreover you should drink a lot of water, which efficiently eliminates hunger.
