The good news is that you don’t really have to fight at all. When your mindset about food is of working with yourself instead of against yourself the power of the craving crumbles. The intensity fizzles and you are free to make choices without feeling deprived, guilty for giving in, or like you’re weak willed. You can enjoy delicious food, have a peaceful mind, and a strong body.
Let’s get started with the 27 simple solutions to stop food cravings right now.
- Eat when you’re hungry. If your body needs food for energy, there is just no replacing food. You can distract yourself and delay eating for only so long. Your hunger cues may go away, but you can be sure that it will come back with a vengeance. Eat a balanced meal. It’s great if the craving is for a balanced meal or snack since you’re taking care of both needs at once! If it’s not and you’re still craving a particular food, then after the balanced meal you will most likely experience a less intense desire. This will give you space so you can enjoy it, now or later, rather than ravenously eating and perhaps consuming more than you feel comfortable eating.
