We all got em! We hear a lot of clients say they can't resist their clients, and we felt the same way for a long time.
However there are tried to true ways to handle our cravings, be satisfied, and not deter our weight loss goals!
Here are easy and tasty ways to deal with these times.
1. Eat a Single-Serving
We do find the best way to handle cravings is to eat the exact food you're craving, to satisfy it.
If you really want ice cream, don't try to eat fruit, because you'll likely end up eating the ice cream after the fruit anyway!
Also, think about what single-serving size amount is truly satisfying. If your find that tiny ice creams are too tempting, and you find yourself having 2 or 3 instead of sticking with 1, have a slightly larger single-serving ice cream to satisfy that craving.
2. Only Keep Small Amounts in the House
Keeping single-servings around helps our self-control - especially during night times when we can easily give into our tempting desires!
Try fun-sized candies, individually-wrapped ice creams, etc.
3. Go OUT to Get It
Another good trick is to not keep those tempting foods in the house, and to go OUT of the house to get them.
If keeping chocolate in the house is too difficult, go to CVS to get a small sized bar.
4. Try a Food That's Similar, but a Little Healthier
If you truly can feel satisfied with an option that's a bit healthier, that can be a great option to eat more nutrient-dense and/ or lower calorie foods.
For example, try watermelon with 2 Tbsp of light whipped cream instead of sorbet!
