What’s the number one tip to handle food cravings?
USE THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSTITUTION.
…eat healthy instead of unhealthy,
nuts/seeds instead of chips and other salty, processed snacks,
…have fruit instead of deserts,
Eat whole foods instead of processed foods.
Question: Aren’t nuts/seeds high in calories?
…Answer: About equivalent in calories per ounce to chips, but nuts are not processed and have fiber and protein and you’ll absorb less calories than chips.
Question: Aren’t fruits high in sugar?
Answer: They are moderate in sugar and come wrapped in fiber, water, vitamins and minerals and don’t cause weight gain like deserts.
Use the principle of substitution for one more reason. Your health will improve by eating whole, real foods, probably the most important.
Have a healthy day!
