Question: “I have great intentions but sometimes my sweet tooth gets the best of me. How can I tame this crazy sweet tooth?!”

Answer: First & foremost you need to work to build up your pleasure associations with the attainment of your goals. I walk you through exactly how to do that in this episode.

You’ll also want to figure out what “clean cheats” you can build into your day so you can enjoy sweet treats and still reach your goals. These will be healthy alternatives such as:

  • A 1-ounce square of dark chocolate
  • Trail mix with dark chocolate (watch out for the dried fruit – its just a little sack of sugar)
  • Protein bars (see my recommendation below)
  • Protein pudding (you can make this with the protein powder listed below or buy Fit & Lean Protein Pudding)
  • Baked apple (just chop up an apple and toss with liquid stevia, cinnamon, vanilla extract and bake for 20 minutes)
  • Chocolate avocado mousse (puree 1/2 an avocado with 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao powder and top with some fresh raspberries)
  • Chia pudding

My fave protein powder for protein puddings: Biotrust Low Carb (affiliate link below)
Chia Pudding Recipe

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup cooled, brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp liquid stevia extract
  • 1/2 banana

Blend all ingredients in the blender and transfer to fridge for at least 3 hours so the chia seeds can absorb the moisture
