Avoiding cravings for food

See also

Is it possible to avoid cravings for food? Yes, cutting down on cravings can be done.

The key is to eat healthy, eating lots of veggies and fruits, some good proteins, and drinking plenty of water.

The following are suggestions that may help cut the cravings:

  1. Eat regularly—perhaps every three hours. This allows for smaller meals and you don’t get hungry.
  2. Include a bit of protein (meat, nuts, tuna, fish and eggs) at each meal. Have a veggie and some fruit. Avoid fruit juices and added sugar, starches and excess fats. Even sweeteners raise your blood sugar.
  3. Go with whole grains. Avoid white foods most of the time, such as white bread and potatoes. Go for whole wheat bread, and brown rice, and whole wheat spaghetti. Some whole grains have fiber, and they reduce the effect of the food on blood sugar levels.
  4. Aim to lose about one to two pounds per week. Try to go in that direction. You can do this by increasing whole fruits and veggies and reducing complex carbs.
  5. Keep cupboard and fridge stocked with healthy foods.

Cravings will be reduced because blood sugar levels will be kept steady. It is spikes and dips in blood sugar levels which cause a craving. So go for a healthy diet and you will see a reduction in cravings.
