What’s the worst thing that can happen when you’re at a summer BBQ?
You literally want to eat ALL the things!
We’ve all been there, you know- when you just have to have it!
Minutes or hours pass by and you end up feeling guilty.
Sometimes you don’t feel guilty because #treatyoself but the point is, it happens to everyone!
So, there is no need to beat yourself up about it. There are ways to help manage these cravings and we’re going to help you feel better by showing you how to do just that!
Want to learn how? Catch our bye-bye cravings guide below, but first let’s find out what causes you to crave ALL the things.
Why do you crave?
There are many factors as to why a person craves the foods that they crave, from being malnutritioned in a particular nutrient or even psychological reasons. If the craving is particularly strong it almost always means that your body is telling you that you are lacking in a certain nutrient, vitamin or mineral. So the next time you crave, think about what else you’ve eaten throughout your day. Have you eaten enough protein, carbs or fat? The reasons vary per person, but cravings can be prevented (see guide below).
How to manage cravings.
Follow our bye-bye cravings guide to defeat those cravings!
Make sure you've eaten enough calories and macros throughout the day- sometimes your body is trying to tell you something. If you’re craving a pizza or just something filled with fat then you just might be low on your healthy fat intake. It’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough nutrients throughout your day like protein, carbs and fats (at a healthy portion, of course).
If you snack, make it full of healthy proteins and fats, such as nuts and seeds. Why? Well, nuts have it all- protein, fats and fiber so you’ll definitely feel fuller, longer leaving less room to binge on empty calorie snacks like chips and soda.
If you are craving a crunch, sometimes some raw veggies can do the trick. Veggies and fruits are full of beneficial fiber that fill you up and nourish you at the same time. The more fiber-rich foods you eat, the less hangry you’ll get- it’s that simple!
Sometimes doing a fun activity instead can distract you from cravings. Think about it, have you ever been home all day and catch yourself eating just because? Yeah- that’s exactly what we’re talking about! Get outside or do something that brings you joy, it might just get your mind off of eating when you’re not even hungry.
