Tips to curb food cravings
- Eat breakfast everyday: If you skip this meal you’ll be starving later in the day and are therefore more likely to pile on the calories with snacks and eat more at lunch or dinner.
- Practice portion control: Buying a party-size bag of chips sets you up for overeating, so opt for one snack-size portion.
- Ride out your cravings: They crest, then fade like a wave! When the urge for chocolate hits, spend five to 10 minutes on a phone call or a quick walk to let your craving subside.
- Avoid food triggers: If you know you won’t be able to resist the cookies in the cupboard, don’t buy them!
