Beat Sugar Cravings

Try Gymnema. This vine, native to India, seems to reduce
sugar cravings. Add 30 to 40 drops of gymnema tincture
(sold at health food stores) to a little water, swish in your
mouth for 30 seconds, and then swallow. Repeat every
2 or 3 hours as needed. Because gymnema only works when
it comes in contact with the tongue, extracts in pills or capsules
won't work.

Take Bitters. Bitters may counteract your craving for sweets.
Shake a few drops into water or club soda. Try Urban
Moonshine's elixirs. You can also try Angostura bitters from
the supermarket.
