Cravings can happen from time to time. Lack of sleep, lack of water, and hormone fluctuations can all contribute.
But cravings shouldn't be constant.
If they are, or if they hit at the same time each day, the reason may go deeper than lack of sleep or hormone shifts.
When cravings hit, the first thing you've gotta do is ask yourself, “Am I really craving something, or am I just bored?”
Nine times out of 10, when you're being honest with yourself, those cravings that makes you wanna snack are just boredom.
But whatever the cause of your craving, having it isn't an excuse to blow all your progress, especially when there are things you can do to tide yourself over until your craving passes.
For example, you can chew some sugar-free gum. You can drink yummy, flavored hot tea (made with a tea bag).
You can take up a hobby, like painting, knitting, gardening, or whatever sounds fun, so that if your cravings are caused by boredom, you have something enjoyable to do besides eat…something that'll take your mind off food.
If your cravings are usually for sugar, and they happen a lot, then there's one more thing I can think of that may be causing them.
It's probably gonna surprise you, because when you first hear it, it seems super counterintuitive.
But when my Rebels crave sugar, I tell them about this weird cause, and how to fix it, and they're pretty surprised at how well it works. Click the image below to watch my video to hear it for yourself!
