Easy Ways to Beat Cravings

Article posted in: Diet & Nutrition

Have you ever experienced really intense food cravings late at night, then found yourself staring, zombie-like, into a refrigerator? Chances are this has happened to you at least once or twice since you started Nutrisystem. You’re not alone. Today, it is all about how to beat food cravings.

Cravings can seem absolutely overwhelming when they occur, and they can be a real threat to your program, especially when they lead to bingeing. When cravings hit, you need to remember that they do pass. Try to distract yourself with a crossword puzzle or a hobby, have a glass of water or hot tea, and then try to figure out what caused the craving in the first place.

Take a careful look at your program:
• Are you eating all your food each day? Don’t forget veggies, protein and fat servings.
• Are you spacing out your meals and snacks over the course of the day?
• How are your portion sizes? Are they big enough? It sounds kind of crazy but one way to lose weight is to make sure you never get hungry.

Simply adjusting just one of these things can make a world of difference. Still happening? Connect with a Nutrisystem Weight Loss Coach.
