it can be a tough at times.
Everyone will battle cravings from time to time.
So here are my 8 top
tips to HALT those pesky cravings
& stop them in their tracks.
When cravings sneak into your brain and you simply
CANNOT think of anything else but devouring
a GALAXY Bar / a whole jar of peanut butter/
monster packs of M & M’s or whatever it may be
here are my strategies.....
1: Do a HIIT Workout.
A quick 10minute will flood
your body and brain with happy hormones & a post
You are more than likely
dehydrated so drink a 1 litre
of bottled water.
3:Eat more Vegetables.
Load up at on your veggies at every meal.
Veggies are filling & are amazing sources of fibre.
They suppress hunger
and keep you satisfied for longer.
If you are really craving sugar then choose nuts.
Not salted or roasted go for organic or natural.
Almonds, Hazelnuts, Cashews are fab.
5: STRESS will definitely play a massive role in your cravings.
Try practising meditation on a daily basis.
Start with 2 minutes & build up
your daily practice.
6: SLEEP is the body’s reset button and in the case of
insufficient sleep will drive your cravings into overdrive.
Go to bed by 1030 & sleep in a bat cave switching
of all infra-red stand bys & phones.
7: Use positive affirmations.
Have a daily mantra that you use
and replay in your mind. It could be “I only choose to
eat healthy food” and when faced with a craving focus on
8: THINK FORWARD. I always “think forward”
& think about how I feel
if I cave and eat a bag of M & M’s/Galaxy/Peanut bar jar etc etc
I can recreate the feeling
of bloatedness, feeling tired, sick even in my mind
and that is usually enough
to snap me out of it.
