Food cravings are usually caused by low levels of blood sugar. This might be happening due to low-calorie diets or not eating for long periods after a meal.

1)     Eat Regularly

Before trying to fast for as many hours as you can to lose weight. Perhaps you need to revise what long periods of hunger can do to your body. You might have tried it before but eating after long periods will only cause you to crave for more food. You should only stop eating for 3-4 hours after a meal so your stomach can digest your previous meal. Eating more regularly will only help your body burn more calories and stop future cravings. However, what foods are you actually searching for that could boost your health?
