Stop Sugar Cravings.
Sugar cravings start in the taste buds. When you bite into something sweet, sugar molecules activate sweet taste receptors on your tongue which, in turn, signal your brain. The brain recognizes these signals as sweet taste and automatically triggers cravings for more. The sugar in just one bite can activate sweet taste receptors for up to 30 minutes, triggering cravings that last just as long. Blocking sweet taste receptors on the tongue can break this cycle.
