If you eat a rainbow of vegetables and salads during your week, you’ll be so filled with nourishment that sugar cravings will drop away!  No freaking out if you eat sugar – you are probably just tired, stressed, hormonal, lonely, sad, dehydrated or under-nourished.  Re-navigate back to whole-foods wholesomeness as soon as you realise, have a good sleep and a nice natter with your friend or family.
