How To Deal With Cravings

Eating isn’t always about feeling hungry. Food cravings, or an intense, uncontrollable desire for a specific type of food, are common.

Cravings also can influence what you eat. People typically crave energy-dense or high-calorie foods, especially late afternoons or evenings.

Cravings can also make you feel less control over what you eat. When you’re in the middle of a craving, it’s often hard to focus on other things. These cravings also can be hard to resist, especially when you’re trying to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle.

Food cravings also can lower your confidence and interfere with your weight loss or health plans. However, this doesn’t have to happen. You can learn to control and manage your food cravings, whether you’re trying to lose weight or develop healthier eating habits.

DIY: Lifestyle changes you can

 implement right now to reduce carvings 

1. No Severe Calorie Deficits 

Create a small caloric deficit, around 15%-25 to optimize both fat loss and hormone balance while also retaining lean mass and supplying enough food to keep you from non-stop cravings. 

2. No Poor Food Choices 

Go high in protein.
Make sure each meal contains a portion of protein and fibrous carbohydrates. Both protein and fiber are great for providing a jolt of satiety, curbing hunger, and mitigating ghrelin spikes.  

3. Don’t Completely Eliminate Your Favorite Food From Your diet

Stop depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy. There are no “good” or “bad” foods. There are just some foods that you need to eat less often or in smaller amounts than others. Over time these restrictions can lead to cravings

 4. Drink More Water

The body can misinterpret signals from the brain, and what feels like a food craving may be a sign of thirst.

5. Get A Good Sleep (7-8 hours) 

Getting enough sleep will help reduce your appetite and hunger levels, as well as lower your risk of weight gain.
