2. Diets cause restriction, your brain/body hates restriction
By definition diets are about depriving your body of certain nutrient groups. Problem with that is as you deprive your body of entire macro-nutrient groups, the brain starts sending signals that you’re hungry and needs energy to keep you alive.
FIX: Don’t diet, just consume better quality foods more of the time. 🍏🍅🥑
3. Fasting, Cheat Meals, Sweet Treats, calorie counting ALL create cravings.
All the above are 21st century creations for satisfying our desire for losing kg’s and in double quick time. Problem is they all promote cravings and cravings attitudes. (And all sorts of mental health issues surrounding food, that I’m not willing or qualified to go in to)
There’s a reason it’s ‘normal’ to eat three meals a day.
It creates habit and a system that shouldn’t require too much thought. If you’re adopting a nutritional protocol that is not sustainable long term, then it’s not a good protocol.
FIX: Only start something you can easily adopt for a LONG TIME (months and years)
4. “Right Now I’m Craving Pizza 🍕, What Should I Do?”
I know you’ve got Domino’s on speed dial. And that “Just Eat” app is WAY too handy.
But there is a quick way to conquer that craving in just 4 minutes.
- Boil or poach an egg. 🥚
- Whilst the egg is cooking, chuck some spinach in a pan, heat it for a few mins… drain it…
- Chuck a load of butter in the pan and let it melt, add the spinach.
- Chuck the buttered spinach on a plate, whack the egg on top… salt, pepper …
DONE. Eat it. Cravings Killed!
5. “I am addicted to sugar, I just can't handle it”
Sugar addiction is purely bad management of your body’s insulin production. Within reason, you start each day from zero, so feed your body something that’s NOT going to spike your insulin.
This means avoid cereals, toast, croissants, muffins, breakfast bars. If you do eat this stuff, Guaranteed you’ll be kicking the window down on the office snack machine before 11am.
Instead consume low carb, high fat and protein based foods for breakfast… Scrambled eggs with spinach and/or smoked salmon is my breakfast of choice. That’ll keep you right til’ lunch easily.
Lean Greens was created over 5 years ago, designed to flood your body with good nutrients and kill off your cravings FAST
During my time as the go-to personal trainer in my city, every client would tell me about their EVIL cravings when following a diet. I wish at the time I could have recommended Lean Greens
My Job would have been a whole lot easier
The idea is simple... give your body the nutrients it REALLY craves, and your cravings 'gland' stays silent all day long.
