What can you advice for keeping cravings at bay?
• See cravings in a positive light. Term it not as cheat days or cheat food but as treats to spare yu from overindulging in times that you “treat yourself”. Do not be at the mercy of your cravings.
• Think: Management not Control. The more we know that it is restricted the more we are tempted to cross the line. And control is always doomed to failure.
• Eat AT LEAST 3 well balanced meal a day. Skipping meals makes you more hungry hence the increased chance of over eating.
• Understand that “craving pass”. It peaks and it subsides. And if you give yourself a chance to think and not to splurge the moment the thought for a craving comes gives you the chance to not want that craving later on.
• Do not label food negatively. It is not “bad” or “forbidden”. This tends to bring out the rebel inus of liking it even more to sneak and have what is not supposed to be had.
• Take charge. You know yourself better than anyone else. You know what is your weakness. If it is that doughnut you passes by everyday, change route to better yourself and not see that temptation.• Exercise regularly to keep you fit and confident. This also helps in managing food craving. It can also be used as a motivation of not wanting anymore to splurge as you think of the exercise you did yesterday.
