It would be a lot easier to lose weight if we weren’t craving something sweet after every meal – not to mention daydreaming about that fast food restaurant that they just advertised on the radio on your way home.
We all experience cravings from time to time – some more frequently than others. But the one thing that we can all agree on is that it makes losing weight a lot more difficult.
Here are 5 tips to help fight the cravings…
Snack on protein
Foods like nuts, seeds, and avocados are all perfect snacks when you’re on a diet. Eating protein helps keep your blood sugar stable enough to carry you to the next meal without cravings.
Keep your hands busy
Usually, cravings strike when you are bored or sitting still. Sometimes all you need to avoid them is a good distraction. You can keep yourself busy with a hobby, doing some work, or best of all – doing some exercise.
Read the label
Before you buy something, take a look at the ingredients list. It will give you a basic idea of how suitable a product is. The main thing to look out for is sugar. Sugar and sugar cravings are one of the biggest problems. Look for things like corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, lactose, maltose, and honey. These are all just sugar in disguise.
Opt for complex carbohydrates
Not all carbs are made equally. The carbs that you should be avoiding are called refined carbohydrates. They are found in things like cakes, cookies, ice cream, soft drinks, packets of chips, and all kinds of other foods.
You do need to have some carbs in your diet, but it is much better to go for complex carbs. These aren’t absorbed into the bloodstream so quickly, so they do not cause too many problems with the sugar levels in your body.
Beware of artificial sweeteners.
Be very careful of sugar alternatives. These are often even more harmful than regular sugar. You may think they are the perfect way to quench your sugar craving, but usually, they make them even worse. If you do want something sweet, opt for natural replacements namely Stevia and Xylitol.
