Cravings, the diet wrecker.
Everyone knows that feeling of being well on our way with a new diet or just starting to get into the habit of living healthier – and then the cravings hit.
We cannot explain it. We just ate. Why on earth are we hungry again? And how are we supposed to make it to the next meal when all we can think of is something deep-fried and covered in chocolate!
Why do we get cravings?
It is mainly due to the body begging us for a sugar or carbohydrate boost to pick up its energy levels. This happens because we have become so dependent on sugar as our main source of energy since we get it in through most of the foods we eat. Our body’s no longer feel the need to burn stored fat as energy because they know their next sugar-boost will come soon.
8 Tips to Curb Cravings
Eat fruit to help with cravings
Yes, fruit also contains sugar. But it also has lots of fibre and nutrients. The fibre helps slow down the release of glucose into the bloodstream, giving the body more time to process it. Dried fruit and nuts make great on-the-go snacks. Always keep some handy to avoid reaching for something sugar-filled when you get a craving – but don’t overdo it, as they are very calorie-dense.
Take your mind off the craving.
When you get a craving, do something to take your mind off it. Take a walk. Hit the gym. Do some work. As long as you change the scenery or get your mind thinking of something other than your craving you have a better chance of not giving in to it.
Quality, not quantity.
If you just cant say no to a sweet treat, pick something wonderful. Go for your all-time favourite, not just anything that will do. And then stick to a small portion. Just one or two blocks of dark chocolate. Share a small slice of cheesecake with your partner. Don’t stuff an entire lemon meringue in your face. It is more healthy to add small amounts of your favourite treats into your diet. If you don’t, you may find yourself overpowered by your craving and giving in to an entire tub of ice cream.
Eat regularly to prevent cravings.
If you wait too long between meals you just set yourself up for overeating, eating the wrong things, and having cravings ten times worse than they should be. Eat every 2 to 3 hours. Make sure that you eat plenty of protein and fibre. Small, healthy meals and snacks can keep you going from meal to meal.
Drink plenty of water to curb cravings.
A time-tested classic is to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Often when you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty. Drinking a glass of water before each meal will also help you feel full more quickly. Exercise is very important to burn excess sugar in the bloodstream. It also promotes weight loss, as it helps to burn excess fat stored in the cells.
Eat low GI to stop cravings.
Eat a healthy, low GI meal (see the Manna Diet) as an option for a healthy lifestyle. This diet can help to eliminate sugar and refined carbohydrates.
Replace a Meal.
Try to replace one meal per day with the new Manna Low GI Shake, because the amount of fibre, essential sugars, and natural minerals in the plant help to curb sweet and food cravings successfully. The Shake also helps to suppress appetite for effective weight loss.
