5 ways to control your junk food cravings

  1. 1. 5 Ways To Control Your Junk Food Cravings
  2. 2. Curbing your junk food cravings can be one of the most challenging tasks when trying to eat healthier and/or lose weight. Many people give up or lose their determination to go on with their plan because of the temptation. But by following a few tips and ground rules, you can help to curtail your cravings and stay on track. Here are some tips to prevent junk food cravings :
  3. 3. 1. Keep the Junk Food Out! While this may seem obvious, it does need to be said: If you don’t buy the junk food, you won’t eat it. If it’s not in your cabinets or fridge, it’s not getting into your hands unless you make a trip specifically to go out and obtain it. When you are at the supermarket, don’t even go down that aisle. Pretend that it’s not there.
  4. 4. 2. H20 it up! It’s extraordinarily difficult to tell if those pangs in your stomach are for food or not. Your gut (pun intended) instinct may be that you want a snack, but in all actuality, it may just be that you are thirsty. Have a glass of water and see if those pangs continue. Additionally, drinking water all throughout the day will keep your belly full and those pangs away.
  5. 5. 3. Read the Labels! Nothing may shock you more than reading the calorie count on the back of some of your favorite snacks. 600 calories for a small bag of chips? 150 calories more for your favorite salad dressing? Is it worth it? By reading the labels, you can begin to pick and choose your battles.
  6. 6. And you will notice that you will start selecting the right foods over the wrong foods more often by making yourself more knowledgeable about their calories. You can have a much more fulfilling snack for 600 calories than that bag of chips. And you can take that extra 150 calories on that creamy dressing and put it towards a better meal.
  7. 7. 4. Make Promises! It doesn’t have to be a New Year to make resolutions. If you want to cut candy out of your diet, do it any day. Start small: I won’t have chocolate for a week. At the end of the week, treat yourself to chocolate. Then make another, longer or different snack-related promise. Set your goals. Even make plans with friends. It’s always easier to keep going with something if you have a buddy and motivation
  8. 8. 5. Pre-Cook Your Meals! Spending a few hours on a Sunday afternoon preparing your meals for the week can do wonders for your cravings. Do you find yourself snacking while you are waiting for dinner?
  9. 9. Do you stop at a fast food restaurant on a Wednesday because you just don’t feel like taking the time out to cook something at home? If you already have things prepared that you can re-heat in a short amount of time, you cut out that hour wait on meal time or the urge to get something quick and easy.
  10. 10. While it cannot be denied that eliminating junk food from your diet can be extremely difficult, just remember it’s also entirely doable! Read more about adult fat camp resort: http://www.onefitnesscamp.com/
