I get cravings every night after dinner for sugar/chocolate/etc... how often do you get cravings? also what can I do to beat them/reduce them? thank you x
Hi! I get cravings fairly regularly (I’m human) and here’s how I tackle them.
When I crave something sweet (like candy), I normally make myself a fruit smoothie, fruit salad, or have some plain frozen fruit. Nature’s candy ☺️ and it usually does the trick. I also will sometimes have granola/cereal or “slightly sweet” boom chicka pop popcorn.
When I crave something crunchy and salty, I typically choose one or two of the following snacks:
- boom chicka pop
- pop chips
- homemade kale chips
- homemade baked sweet potato fries
When I crave chocolate, I have dark chocolate OR a small handful of frozen dark chocolate chips. I also like cocoa dusted almonds, dark chocolate peanut butter, chocolate protein shakes, dark chocolate covered banana slices, or chocolate frozen yogurt.
Those are just a few of my go to’s. I also ALWAYS drink a big glass of lemon water or sparking lemon water when I get cravings, because it helps fill me up. If I REALLY want something, I give into the craving. If you don’t give in and are too strict, it usually leads to binging later on. So, when I crave pizza for example I’ll typically make a homemade one so I know what’s in it OR I’ll go to a pizza place and get a slice with my boyfriend. It’s totally fine to enjoy the things you crave every once in a while. Hope this helps!! ❤️
