A craving is a message from your body. Decode those messages and learn what your body is really telling you!
Are You In A Cravings Cycle?
Is It A Craving or Is It Hunger?
Are you actually experiencing physiological hunger or psychological hunger?
Before You Eat, Rate Your Hunger!
Avoid going below 2 or above 8 on the hunger scale. Remember, your body needs a minimum of 1200 calories a day to function well.
H.A.L.T. Before You Eat!
If your hunger rating is 5 or above, you may be experiencing a psychological craving instead of true hunger which means you need to act rather than eat.
Craving, Identify Yourself!
A craving is a sign that your body wants a certain nutrient. Unfortunately, our cravings often steer us away from nutritious foods and lead us to eat foods that lack these actual nutrients.
Three well-balanced meals along with several healthy snacks will keep those cravings at bay! When cravings hit, combine a fruit or veggie with a protein for a healthy snack!
