How to Manage your Food Cravings

There’s no doubt about it, most Filipinos love to eat. It’s manifested even in a slogan which goes, “Dito kumakain ang masarap kumain,” We just have a knack for enjoying a satisfying meal.

It’s also a fact that craving can affect even the most determined dieter. Similar to giving up smoking, when dieting you always get cravings. But try the following tips to help you cope and resist temptation:

·     Don’t skip meals as this will make you more likely to crave other foods and snacks because you are hungry. Studies show that those who skip meals often overeat in their next meal thus nullifying the meal they skipped.

·     Don’t starve yourself as this will most likely lead you to experience cravings and you may give in to temptation. Keep healthy snacks like fruit or carrots/celery sticks handy at all times.

·     Drink plenty of water as dehydration can sometimes be mistaken for hunger and can increase cravings, especially for sweet foods. Water will also make you feel full and that will make you less hungry.

·     Don’t keep food you crave in the house, and don’t go shopping when you’re hungry as you will more likely buy foods that are in the no-no list.

·     As with any craving, distract your attention from it—go for a walk, have a bath or watch TV.

·     Indulge once in a while so that you don’t deprive yourself completely as this could be your downfall. If you crave chocolate allow yourself a fun-sized chocolate bar and don’t feel guilty.

A healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet is always best. Good luck!
