Tip #21: Cravings and Hunger – Weight Loss Tips.

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

It’s a daily battle for so many people to make healthy choices. Ask yourself: What would a healthy person do? Stop and think. Even then, good intentions can still get put aside like when a sudden craving hit.  What do you do?

Cravings that hit you out of the blue typically last 10- 15- or 20-minutes.

Many times, people confuse hunger and cravings for thirst or dehydration.  Keep water handy.

This can also be a sign you need better quality nutrition, and possibly some vitamins.

Have a plan.

  1. Make a to-do list so that when those cravings hit you can keep busy and get past those first 15- to 20-minutes.
  2. Keep a glass of water nearby.
  3. Distract yourself from the cravings and 9 out of 10 times, you’ll succeed, and those cravings will go away.
  4.  If you’re still hungry or craving, try an apple. If an apple doesn’t sound good you may be bored, tired, angry, or lonely.
  5. Get some rest.
  6. Call a friend, or your weight loss health coach.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.
