Craving Control

Share This:

Food cravings. We all have them. Sometimes we crave food because we really are hungry. Or because our body is in need of a particular nutrient or vitamin. But sometimes we crave food because we’re tired, or we’re bored.

What’s to be done when a non-nutrient food craving hits? Well, you can eat, of course. And if you do, hopefully you reach for something healthy like carrot sticks or an apple.

But there are other things you can do, too.

Drink water! Instead of being hungry, you may actually just be thirsty. Drink a glass of water and see if maybe that makes you feel better.

Take some deep breaths and, if meditation is your thing, meditate for a minute or two.

Another thing you can do is a forearm plank. It’s a yoga move that targets your core muscles. Never done one before? Here’s a guide!

When your cravings strike, if you notice you’ve been sitting for a long time, get up and take a quick five minute walk. Or, if you’re ambitious, go for a short jog.

And finally, be mindful when you eat. Not just when you’re experiencing cravings, but all day long. Make sure you’re getting plenty of protein and fiber to fill you up and provide the energy you need to have a successful day.
