Words From Dr Libby Weaver (PhD)
nutritional biochemist, author & speaker
Craving something sweet in the evenings is usually one of these three things
Nutritional: Your food choices throughout the day may have been missing
some key nutrients, and so your body drives you to eat unresourcefully at the
end of the day in an attempt to get these needs met. This is particularly
common if you haven't had enough nutritious fats throughout the day,
if you've missed a meal or swapped food for a coffee.
Biochemically: When we race around all day living on adrenaline due to
our perceptions of pressure & urgency, the body will predominately burn glucose,
rather than fat, and you will crave more sugar to replenish your stores.
Emotionally: Often our craving for sugar has more to do with an emotional need that
isn't been met as we seek more "sweetness" in our lives. Identifying this and
cultivating ways to bring more joy into your life can transform these cravings.
