Curb Your Cravings

Cravings can strike at any time and wreck your diet progress. Next time you are in the market for a tempting treat, stop and see if these techniques can help you to stay on track so you can outsmart your cravings.

1. Get Physical: When you move it you lose it. Physical activity is number one for curbing cravings. Exercise is on the same pleasure pathway as food. When you move your body, you take in oxygen and release feel-good brain chemicals. This gives you immediate appetite and craving control..so you can forget that 100 calorie cookie!

2.Go Healthy: Your hungry and you may not know it. Why not plan for what your body needs by eating healthy food to keep hunger at bay.  A well balanced meal will fill you up with delicious and nutritious healthy food so plan to eat at routine intervals for cravings management!

3. Indulge a little: Instead of the typically diet taboos, a little diet bump that incorporates a tasty treat goes a long way to curb cravings. Forbidden food makes eating all the more appealing. Neutralize the desire to overdo it with a little satisfaction with a controlled indulgence to keep cravings at bay.

4.Distract not React:  When all else fails it’s time to break out the heavy hardware.  The world is calling you to eat so  distraction techniques can be your solution and best friend!  Disrupt your brain circuitry with an abrupt stimulus like forehead tapping or washing your mouth out with peppermint. This helps you escape  quickly and gives you back piece of mind instead of a piece of cake!

Take a look at my recent segment on CBS 2 HD where you can see Irene, one of our clients, talk about how she works through nagging cravings by using these techniques for a complete health transformation.
