8 Ways To Reduce Appetite And Kill Your Cravings

How To Control Your AppetiteDo you get food cravings?

I sure do. The most common food cravings are for sugar, carbohydrates, chocolate, and salt.

I had a monster of a craving last week. I always, without fail, crave carbs especially cereal, bread, and crisps.

My cravings go into overdrive especially at certain times of year, for example when it’s dark, cold and wintery because my serotonin levels are lower due to the lack of light and heat.

But don’t be too hard on yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with a little indulgence now and then.

But let’s try and limit the damage with my top 8 strategies to balance things out, reduce your appetite and kill cravings in their tracks ...

My 8 Ways To Reduce Appetite & Kill Cravings

  1. Avoid Overly Processed Foods - Try eating healthier alternatives that minimally spike sugar levels e.g. fresh fruits and berries, nuts, non-gluten grains, sweet potatoes, hummus, stevia and coconut nectar. Having better choices on hand to munch on can help distract those cravings until they pass.
  2. Do not skip meals and let you sugar levels drop as this is a sure way to trigger cravings.
  3. Consume dark green leafy vegetables like kale and spinach will also help counter balance We want to flood your system with as many nutrients as possible. Greens drinks such as Lean Greens is a super easy way to do this. Also, the high fibre content in veggies releases energy slowly and so will keep you fuller for longer.
  4. Stay hydrated. Make sure you’re drinking about half your body weight (lbs) in ounces of water daily. Dehydration makes you feel hungry and dehydrated.
  5. Take A Daily Probiotic - Sugar will affect your immunity by killing off beneficial bacteria in the gut. Take a strong probiotic with a wide range of active cultures daily and also try to at least limit sugar intake.
  6. Increase your intake of protein and healthy fats to keep you nourished, satiated and energised. Your body will be able to run longer and more efficiently with these for fuel rather than sugar that spikes insulin and then quickly brings about a crash.
  7. Exercise and stay rested. Rather than relying on unhealthy quick fixes to help feel relaxed, go for walks and get into bed earlier in the evening. These habits produce endorphins just like the best tasting chocolate. Exercise will also boost your serotonin levels which will help alleviate any cravings.
  8. Make meditation and sunshine a daily habit.Taking a few minutes every day to meditate and getting 10-15 minutes a day of sunshine or light therapy will boost your serotonin levels and mood and again take your mind of your cravings.
