Losing weight would be so much easier if we didn’t experience cravings. You could try sticking to a healthy diet all day long just for cravings to kick in at the end on the day.
It’s so hard to fight them (I know), but there are is a way to stop or prevent them from ruining your diet routine. Here are 5 ways to stop/prevent cravings:
Water is a solution to so many problems especially when you are trying to lose weight. If you crave any unhealthy food, try taking a glass of water and wait a while. You will notice the craving will fade away.
Avoid getting extremely hungry
Hunger is the reason why we experience cravings in the first place. Avoid getting hungry by snacking on fruits before your next meal.
Eat more protein
Eating more protein makes you feel full and satisfied for longer. One study of overweight teenage girls showed that eating a high-protein breakfast reduced cravings significantly.
Most of us eat when we’re stressed, it feels good right? But, that’s the moment where you end up eating junk. Try and fight stress by planning ahead, meditating and generally slowing down.
Try and stay away from your craving
You really can’t be craving chocolate and spend all day in a chocolate factory expecting not to take a bite. Same case with fries and all that junk you crave. Distance yourself from the craving and occupy your mind with something else.
