5 Ways to Control Food Cravings
One of the most difficult parts of dieting, or controlling our eating habits, is how to stop our food cravings. With many people, exercise comes easier than controlling their food cravings, even if they are not an exercise buff. The mind is the culprit and what the mind says goes. Usually the scenario begins something like this: your day starts easy and you are in a good mood. Your mind is made up; at least you hope it is, that there will no more cookies for the rest of the week. Later in the day, you get a phone call stating that there is going to be a hike in your credit card fees. Your blood begins to boil and you grab a cookie from the stash you have for emergencies.
Usually it is pretty much downhill from this point and you decide to eat the lot. Its back to stage one, and you have worked yourself up into a tizzy. So then, how can you take back control of yourself to stay on the right track? Here are five tips to help you stop food cravings, and if you are on a special diet, help you get back on the right track.
1. Eat Fiber
Eating fiber is one of the most popular and best ways to halt cravings. Fiber makes your stomach feel full and helps to slow down digestion.
2. Drink Water
You have been told this a million times at least. Water is indispensable to life. Consider this: up to 60 percent of our bodies is water, the brain is made of 70 percent water, and the lungs almost 90 percent. Approximately 83 percent of our blood is water. Each day we must restore 2.4 liters of water in every way we can mostly through drinking liquids.
3. Eat More Calories
If you are eating too few calories, the brain goes into panic and makes you go on the hunt for food and any food will do.
4. Stop Eating in Front of the TV
You are anticipating your favorite reality show. The last thing you want to do is grab a bowl of ice cream, why not grab a bunch of grapes instead?
5. Cheat a Little
If you plan properly, you can sneak a chocolate bar into your day from time to time; however, do not let yourself overdo it. Eat it slowly and do not attach emotions to the experience.
