By Virginia Laird

Are you one who battles daily to keep from caving in to your junk food cravings? You are not alone. Millions report struggling with this same issues on a routine basis. For those who have a desire to live a healthy lifestyle, some cravings can get in the way. Rather than feeling defeated, some professionals have offered a glimmer of hope when struggling with the drive to consume junk food. Health and wellness experts have compiled a list of tips to help you keep from giving in to your cravings, including:

  • Eat smaller portions more often
  • Don’t completely avoid your craving
  • Find a way to stay busy

Eat Smaller Portions More Often

According to these professionals, eating smaller meals more often can help you avoid cravings. Research suggest that cravings tend to take over the body when the stomach is empty and the body hungry. To avoid feelings of hunger, it is best to eat more frequently. Rather than chowing down on three larger meals each day, it is advised to consume five to six smaller meals. Health and wellness experts suggest this can help the metabolism as well as curb your cravings.

Don’t Completely Avoid Your Craving

Most diets advise that you should avoid all junk food. Experts recommend that this can be a recipe for failure while dieting. Super strict rules, when following a diet, can increase cravings. Instead, it is advised that you limit your consumption of your favorite junk food. For some, this may mean that you consume it only once each week. Research suggests that limiting yourself, without completely avoiding these foods, can help you curb your cravings.

Find a Way to Stay Busy

Staying busy is a great way to avoid falling victim to cravings. This may include working in the yard, cleaning the house, getting some exercise, or doing service for someone in need. No matter what you choose to do, health and wellness experts advise that staying busy can help keep your mind clear and off of the junk food that may be available otherwise.

Hopefully this professional advice can help you control and defeat your cravings. If you are serious about making healthy changes to your lifestyle, now is the time to start making these changes.
