HERE’S HOW TO KILL YOUR CRAVINGS

Step #1: BE AWARE of your cravings, so you can 1) notice patterns and 2) feel more in control of them.

So … what’s the next step?

Step #2: BE PREPARED. The Scouts were onto something with this one.

If you know that you start craving salty/sweet/crunchy food every time you crash on the couch at night after a long day, BE PREPARED.

If you know that every afternoon you start having visions of chocolate chip cookies dancing in your head, BE PREPARED.

If you always associate eating beer and wings with watching the fights or the game on the weekends, BE PREPARED.

What “being prepared” looks like will depend on you and your situation.

But it can include these two simple tactics:

  • Find a diversion. I quit snacking on junk food at night when I got tired. (yes, it happens to me too!)
    Instead of just watching TV, I did some home organization projects with the TV on. I also dabbled with a few hobbies – anything to focus my attention on something else!
  • Have a healthier option on-hand: frozen fruit, carrot/celery sticks, nonfat yogurt with fresh berries, homemade air fryer wings. Make sure it’s ready to go.

From my own experience (and that of my clients) it only takes a few days of making the switch for cravings to start going away. (REALLY.)

And also for you to start noticing changes in your energy, your sleep, and your results!

It’s all about being intentional about what you put into your body … and not letting the “automatic” habits take over and derail you from your goals! 

It’s a lot easier than you think.
