Some Great Tips For Dealing With Food Cravings!

Updated on March 19, 2013

Find Ways to Reduce Stress

It's no secret that we are more likely to give into our cravings when we are overly anxious or stressed out. Continually finding ways to manage the stress in your life can really help your ability to fight cravings when they arise and may even help keep them from arising in the first place. Using food or binge eating as a stress reduction tool becomes less appealing as we incorporate more alternative ways to reduce stress in our lives.

Try Not To Skip Meals

If you skip meals you risk letting yourself get too hungry, and the hungrier you are the more likely you are to give into unhealthy food cravings as opposed to eating healthy. Also, you are more likely to overeat at the next meal and may overcompensate. Try to stick to a regular eating schedule as much as possible.

Try Keeping a Food Craving Journal

This can help you think about and understand why you may crave certain foods at certain times. If you begin to better understand specific situations or emotions that may cause you to crave certain foods you may be able to take the necessary steps to avoid these situations.

Find Quotes To Inspire You

A few of my personal favorite are "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" and "If hunger is not the problem, than food is not the solution."
