Fight Those Cravings

Can’t seem to fit those mid day cravings of chocolate, salt, and everything bad for you? Here are five ways to end those cravings and stay on track!

–       Eat every three to four hours. Spreading out your calorie intake throughout the day helps to keep your blood sugar stable, allowing you to make better, healthier food choices.

 

–       Don’t ban treats. It’s ok to indulge, but don’t over do it. According to Leck Merner, “By incorporating a 100-calorie treat on a daily basis, we are less likely to over eat.”

 

–       Wait it out. When you find yourself craving something when you are not hungry, wait 20 minutes and distract your mind in other ways so it forgets about your craving.

 

–       Eat natural foods. Limit the amount of artificial sweetened foods your intake. These foods throw off your body’s natural ability to monitor calories causing you to possibly overeat.

 

–       Sleep well. Sleep deprivation influences your food choices, making you crave high-carb, high-sugary foods.
