Better Understand the Craving Monster Before Doing Anything Else

It is going to be impossible for you to successfully fight back against any cravings unless you know exactly what those cravings are going to be moving forward. And believe it or not, though the overwhelming majority of people out there would be able to tell you exactly what they think they are big cravings are, most of them have absolutely no idea what they are going to be craving at 3 AM 21 days into a brand-new healthy eating lifestyle.

Therefore, it is so critically important to really try to understand the craving monster and what that is for you specifically. Are you a salty treat kind of guy or more of a sugary sweet kind of gal? Are there specific foods, specific types of foods, or specific “oddball” cravings that you find yourself reaching for more often than anything else? Have you ever had an out of the blue craving that you just can’t explain, but one that was more powerful than any other?

Each one of these answers is going to be able to help you better understand exactly what you’re fighting back against Kelly and will provide you with the inside information you need to win the war against cravings from here on out.

Time Your Meals and Your Snacks

The overwhelming majority of folks out there that are really struggling with a new healthy eating lifestyle struggle not because they don’t have any willpower or because they aren’t really committed to change, but instead because they have trained themselves to become “grazers” – the kind of folks that eat a little bit here and they are all throughout the day without even really thinking about it.

One of the best ways to prepare yourself for a life without cravings is to simply you eliminate the ability for you to eat all day long even if you had wanted to. Create a program that allows you to eat your main meals at right around the same time every day and burn that into a brand-new habit, but is sure to set aside certain blocks of times throughout the day that allows you to snack on healthier options.

This approach will make sure that you feel plenty fall throughout the day but also will help you to avoid reaching for snacks absentmindedly, the kinds of snacks that would have set you back from all your weight loss or fitness goals.

Clean House When It Comes to Getting Rid of Junk Food

In the same vein as the tip above, you’re going to want to do absolutely everything you can to really “autopilot” your ability to say goodbye to cravings once and for all – and that means throwing out ALL of the junk food that you have in your house so that you aren’t even kind of attempted to reach for one of those bad snacks going forward.

This is one of the hardest and most challenging things for most folks to do, not only from a physical standpoint (getting rid of your favorite foods is just something that most people aren’t prepared for) but also something that’s quite challenging from a mental standpoint as well. There’s going to be moments of indecision, moments of fear, and moments where you feel like you just can’t get rid of absolutely everything. Push past those, commit to your new healthy eating lifestyle and get rid of any of the “poison” that would otherwise push you off course

Drown Your Cravings with Plenty of Water

The overwhelming majority of the times that we think we feel hungry we really are just thirsty, and simply don’t recognize the signs any longer. So because we think we’re hungry (when we really aren’t) and of reaching for those salty snacks or sugary treats, crush just as many of them as humanly possible – usually until we feel that we’ve gone too far – and completely ignore the fact that our bodies are dehydrated and are practically begging for water.

Thankfully, though, by recognizing that this is a problem in the first place you’re going to be able to resolve the issue instantly effectively and permanently from here on out but you’re also going to learn a great way to push past cravings once and for all as well.

You see, water (plenty of it) can eliminate our feelings of hunger completely and can wash away any of the crazy cravings that we may have been really looking forward to. You’re not only going to be able to hydrate your body and help yourself get a lot healthier in the process by drinking more water throughout the day, but you’re also going to be able to kill off surprise cravings as they present themselves.
