1. Plan in advance.
This really helped me as I plan my snacks for the week ahead and always make sure to have healthy snacks readily available for those afternoon cravings. Some of my go to snacks are apples, almonds, yogurt, and fruits.
2. Eat small snacks and meals more frequently throughout the day.
I would always get hungry between breakfast and lunch so I learned to have a healthy in between snack to hold me over until lunch.
3. Switch it up.
Let's face it, we all like variety. There's nothing wrong with having a few cheat meals a week. I listen to my body and my cravings and change up my meals based on what's in season. A lot of the times when you're craving carbs, it means that your body is most likely deficient in some vitamins.
4. Allow yourself to indulge.
I keep dark chocolate at my desk at work for my daily sweet tooth cravings. My go to is Chocolove XOXOX Almonds and Sea Salt Dark Chocolate. Be sure to have it in moderation.
5. Drink lots of water.
Staying hydrated is so extremely important. If you are very active and exercise regularly you will probably need to replenish with more water. One way to check is to see the color of your urine. The goal for your urine is to be colorless or light yellow. When you feel thirsty it means that you're already dehydrated.
