You may not see the connection, but numerous studies agree that cutting down your sugar intake can greatly reduce alcohol cravings. Because the body ultimately turns the carbs in alcohol into sugar, your body could be simply looking for another source of sweetness. If you can begin to reduce the amount of sugar the body gets on a regular basis, you can begin to curb your cravings for sugar and, consequentially, alcohol. In order to do this, you will need to steer clear of sodas, processed treats, sugary desserts and syrupy condiments.

Be careful to monitor how much fruit juice you drink as well. Sometimes food items that look healthy and harmless can carry a surprisingly hefty load of sugar; juice and dried fruit fall into this category. The suggested amount of daily intake of fruit juice is four ounces a day and a few tablespoons of dried fruit.
