You actually ate well satiated. But still, it’s as if you could liege eat something delicious now again.
Like something really delicious.
You turn your attention back to your amazement at Christian Degn’s height and try to forget the sugar craving, which has now changed its voice to a brutal Colombian drug baron.
“Now you are listening to hombre amigo. Now you roll those legs over the sofa and pick up the package of Karen Wolf brownies that are out in the kitchen cupboard. And it is now! ”, It tells us.
“Stop sugar cravings! Let me be now. I’m just trying to lose weight. I’m not going to have Karen brownies now. Why should I ruin my progress for it? ”You say.
After 30 seconds of heated discussion back and forth, the Colombian drug lord finally gives up.

Therefore, today I will give you my 4 best tips to stop the sugar craving, so you will have significantly easier time controlling it the next time it surprises you on the couch.
