Do you ever find yourself CRAVING certain foods? Of course, we all do, right?Recently I was reviewing a plan with a client and she wrote, “I want to stop craving sweets.” The previous night while watching TV her appetite started acting up and she began to have some pretty intense cravings.

She found herself in the kitchen rummaging through the fridge, cupboards, and pantry looking for something to satisfy her hunger. It’s a familiar scenario to us all, right? We talked about this and here’s what I told her.

How to Stop Cravings

We are all human, we all have cravings and we always will!

But how to NOT let those cravings get the best of us and sabotage our great healthy eating plan is simple.

Don’t keep your trigger foods in your house.

For instance, I can keep salty foods like pretzels or chips around my house. They don’t tempt me at all. I can even keep cookies or cake around and still no temptation.

But ice cream…..that’s another story. SO, I don’t keep ice cream in my freezer. Simple enough, right?

Pro Tip: Don’t miss out on taking the best supplements on the market. Here’s what I use and recommend! I’ve even got a 10% discount coupon available for my friends 🙂

If you want to end your challenge with late night snacking on the foods you know are “wrong” for you, and you want to increase your adherence to your healthy eating plan then………

Keep your house free of trigger foods.

If they are not available, they won’t tempt you. Trying to use will-power rarely works, and the cravings usually have their way with you.

Try this “off limits” approach with your trigger foods and see what happens.

It’s likely that when you go grazing during a craving you’ll reach for a piece of fruit
or some nut butter on celery or a protein snack instead.
