How to stop cravings in between meals - Two simple, but powerful weight balance hacks

In my clinical (and personal) experience, If cravings are happening every day, it’s not your will power that’s the problem, it’s your main meals that need addressing.

Trust me, I have been there.

In an effort to keep my weight stable, i’d try SO hard to get breakfast, lunch and dinner perfect.

Back then, in my mind, that meant “low calorie”, and low fat. I’d then be SO frustrated when id cave into cravings, and eat something “not so great”, usually high in sugar, in between meals.

Id think – What the hec was wrong with me? I’m doing everything right I just have no will power. I’m doomed.

I wasn’t doomed. I had just been sucked into the calorie in vs calorie out, low carb, low fat mentality. Gosh I wish I could talk to the 17 year old me.

But at least now I can help others avoid making the same mistakes I did, and clear up some confusion.

Here are TWO simple, but surprising powerful weight balance hacks I wish I had discovered in my teens:

Weight balance hack #1:

Your better off having cream in your porridge, and peanut butter in your smoothie – than falling for the muffin or mocha coffee at morning or afternoon tea.
(In my case it would be a hazelnut latte and chocolate – the sweet cravings were real).

Weight balance hack #2:

Don’t forego potatoes and rice at dinner only to binge on chocolate or ice cream for dessert. (Me for about 5 years – Who can relate?)

Let me explain:

Fats keep us full, and they slow down the sugar release from your meals.

Carbohydrate needs are more complicated, but most of us do well, and feel good with a little carbs in our meals ESPECIAILY after exercise.

THE POINT?

If you are not satisfied after your main meals, they only last you 2-3 hours before you get hungry, or you start craving sugar, then those meal need looking at!!

Your Meal Check-List:

1. Do you have protein in your meal? Examples: protein powder, nut/seeds, eggs, yoghurt, or any animal protein.

2. Do you have healthy fats in your meal? Nuts/seeds, yogurt, nut butter, or in lunches – veggies cooked in olive or butter.

3. Are you getting enough carbs for the amount of training you are doing? I could right a whole other post of pre and post training nutrition. But in short, carbs are your friend when it comes to keeping cravings at bay after exercise.

WHERE TO START?

Have a look at my recipe section for some idea’s and inspiration. You could try the Body Balancing Bircher or Choco Greens Smoothie. 

I break it down for you, and show you how to construct nutritionally balanced meals, and they’re also super tasty (at least my clients think so ;))

Alternatively – If you think you may need more personalised guidance, simply make contact via the contact page. Tell me your goals, and we can go from there…

Much Love
