× Bust your sugar cravings for good with this 3-week plan! You'll get daily tips, strategies and built-in support to help you kick your sugar dependence.

Re-Frame Your Brain

Sugar gives us a sweet release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls the brain's center of pleasure and reward. Eating sugar boosts dopamine temporarily, but you know what also gets the job done? Exercise! Today, on top of journaling about your sugar cravings and avoiding added sugars, try getting up and moving every time you feel a craving coming on. Take a 10-minute walk, do some jumping jacks or push-ups and then see how you feel. You might be amazed to find that your craving has disappeared!
