How To Stop Craving The Wrong Foods

  You wake up each morning with every intention of eating "good" today. You'll skip the drive thru line on your way to work. You'll refuse to get fast food with co-workers at lunch. You'll boycott the vending machine in the mid-afternoon. And you won't even think about having dessert after dinner. But then your cravings win. Your friend drops by with a big fluffy muffin and a latte for breakfast. A group of co-workers invite you to that greasy spoon down the street for lunch. Cake is passed around at the mid-afternoon staff meeting. And after dinner your honey surprises you with a bowl of your favorite ice cream. You tell yourself that tomorrow will be different. Tomorrow you won't give in to food cravings. But then tomorrow comes with its own special circumstances, and cravings get the best of you once again. Why Do Food Cravings Always Win? Let's face it, we live in a world where food temptations are everywhere...which lead to cravings,

This fad doesn’t work

  Heads up, , I’ve got some controversial news for you today – but hang with me!  “Moderation” is one of the biggest buzzwords in wellness right now.  But guess what? It doesn’t work … Because almost everyone does it wrong.  The fact is, what looks like “moderation” to one person might be something completely different for someone else.  For food, your definition of “moderate” can depend on what you grew up eating, your current eating habits, or even your mood. Just as one example: what’s a “moderate” amount of pizza?  If you conducted a poll, you’d probably come up with a huge range of answers … from an entire pizza all the way down to one slice. (This isn’t even taking into account the “extras” people eat or drink with their pizza.) All of this is backed up by science.  A major study found that when people ate according to the old saying, “everything in moderation,”  they ended up with a less healthy diet  than people who ate a smaller number of healthy foods. PLUS:  they ended up wi

Are you a stress eater? Or meal skipper?

  If you’ve ever had a stressful day (or year!) that affected your eating habits, you are NOT alone. In a study,  more than 75% of adults said that stress played a role in their eating  during the past month.  This included overeating, eating junk foods, or not eating. Many of them said it happened weekly. They also said it made them feel sluggish, lazy, disappointed in themselves, and/or irritable. The good news is that I have a few tips below to stop stress from getting in the way of your results when it comes to food. But before I get into the tips, it’s important to know WHY stress affects our appetite.  Knowing why can help you manage the situation when you’re in it! When you get stressed, your body releases hormones to help you deal with stress.  Not only can these hormones – including adrenaline, insulin, and cortisol – cut your appetite and/or make you crave high-calorie, high-fat foods … They also can make your body store MORE fat than when you’re relaxed.   Not cool, hormones
