Berberine: Can it suppress craving for sugar?

Post by michaeljkelly » Fri Jun 10, 2022 9:33 pm

I have been on a wierd binge with sweets.

I don't buy them. My wife does.. And she can ignore cookies for weeks. I can ignore them for a day.

I take berberine when i have sugar, but I wonder if I take a higher dose everyday if it will help me resist.

I hear ya Michael, and it's worse in the summer... working in the yard. My soda stream water doesn't cut it.

Berberine takes a lot of the consequence of sugar, so maybe we can worry less as we get used to the idea of less.

The best i guess is drinking lots of water and taking berberine or metformin when you are bad.

The one thing I HAVE done that makes me crave sweets less is cardio exercise. If i am doing it regularly, I crave better food.

I agree with Jan. I think that cardio exercise eventually demands that we eat better. Also exercise feeds your body and that may give you a more satisfied feeling. That is the way I look at it.

I am trying something different for this month. I have precooked/grilled pork, beef, chicken and fish.

l I also have several kinds of brick cheese.

And lots of dill pickels.

This month, these will be my go to snacks. No sweets.

I will see if i gain or lose or just maintain weight.
