17 Surprising Ways To Combat Cravings
Take Healthy Foods With You
When you’re out of the house, whether you’re on a road trip, at work or simply commuting somewhere, always have a healthy snack with you to resist the temptation of buying unhealthy food. Nuts and fruit are good choices, as they are both tasty and filling.
Oftentimes, people mistake their thirst for hunger, and put the wrong thing in their mouth. Drink some water first. If you still feel hungry, then have a small snack of fruits or vegetables!
Don’t Go Places That Will Tempt You
While you know which shops stock the foods you love, such as that delicious yet super-high calorie cake at the bakery, restrain yourself from going there. Also, don’t try to convince yourself that if you go there, you’ll get something healthy, because once you see it, you’ll most likely give in to your cravings.
Herbal and green teas have both been shown to be mild appetite suppressants. Not to the point where it suppresses your natural appetite, but enough to help you resist your cravings!
