If you are frustrated because you eat “well” all day long, but then struggle with the seemingly out-of-control cravings later in the the afternoon and evening, you’re not alone! Food cravings often have physical component, habitual component, and a mental or emotional component. When you’re fighting all three it’s hard to make progress. Luckily, when you take out the physical component of your cravings you are often able to manage the other two much more easily. Learning to balance your blood sugars throughout the day (even if you have no trouble with your blood sugars), making sure your body is nourished, and learning to pair foods correctly can help you overcome your cravings quickly and see progress toward your goals!
