News Flash: Food Cravings are Normal

As a Weight Loss Success Coach, you can bet your bottom dollar that ‘cravings’ is a topic that rises to the top often! Rather than trying to ‘kill the craving,’ or beat up on yourself for being weak and having zero will power, here follows a more ‘sane’ approach!
Food Cravings are Normal!
At one time or another, we have all experienced a food craving. It may have been for something sweet or something salty or even something fatty. More than likely your body was trying to tell you something. Perhaps it was in need of a mood boost, energy boost or your body was in need of calm, and it sent signals to your brain that food was the answer.
FaToid: Not surprising, the number one reported food craved by women is chocolate. Chocolate contains sugar and fat, which increases serotonin levels. Thus, causing a calming affect.
Here follows what you need to know to get your through the craving!
The DO’s and DO NOT’s of Food Cravings:
DO take care of your craving as soon as you are aware of it. The more time you have to think; the stronger the craving can get.
DO allow yourself a small amount of whatever it is the you are craving.
DO stock your house, office and car with healthy snacks.
DO have breakfast. Studies show that a healthy start to the day cuts down on cravings. If you are on the run keep fresh fruit, yogurt, pre-portioned cereal boxes, little tiny boxes of raisins, hard boiled eggs on hand.
DO NOT deny yourself something that you are craving. The more you ignore a food craving or deny yourself a particular food, the more you want it. Abstinence and restriction intensify a food craving, which can lead to binge eating.
DO NOT misinterpret this information and go hog wild. :)
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
