In many cases, what I find works best is not focusing on what we CAN’T have, but what we CAN have. It’s not about depriving ourselves, but about finding healthy alternatives. We all have weaknesses, but instead of giving into those weaknesses and feeling guilty about them later, find a healthier substitution that will leave you feeling better and your body healthier.
Think about it, most of the time we are not craving something solely for the taste, it’s more than that — it’s the sugar-fix associated with that food, or the texture or the crunch. Sometimes it’s the salty taste, or the cold feeling of that food in our mouths.
Below, I’ve highlighted some common cravings and healthy alternatives that I believe are fairly comparable for those cravings.
