Sugar cravings? Squash them like this.

  • Healthy Eating
  • Clean Eating

Cravings — when they rear their ugly heads, it's so hard to get a handle on them. For me, it was always the muffins and baked goods at the coffee shop where I studied in college that would completely derail my healthy efforts... especially around exam time!

But how can we successfully squash cravings before they cause a dietary disaster?

They say prevention is the best medicine, and I find that to be 100% true when it comes to sneaky cravings....

The #1 way to prevent cravings is by fixing micronutrient deficiencies.

Sound complicated? Maybe, but it doesn't have to be. It's quite simple actually.

Your body is craving things like chocolate, baked goods, and potato chips because it doesn't have all the nutrients it needs. Basically, it's trying to tell you, "I'm missing something here and I really need it!"

I'm giving you a simple checklist to make sure you have covered all of your needed nutritional bases (in the easiest way possible).

Cravings Prevention Checklist

Daily Checklist for Cravings Prevention

  1. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day (more if you exercise and/or drink coffee or caffeinated tea). Many times, you crave sugary foods when you are dehydrated. You don't need that cookie — what you need is more H2O. The best way to accomplish this is by using a water bottle already marked with your goal.
  2. Protein, protein, protein. Be sure you've included a healthy protein source in each of your meals. Eggs for breakfast, almond butter in your snacks, and salmon or chicken for your lunch and dinner. Protein works its magic by keeping your blood sugar balanced throughout the day, preventing any blood sugar crashes, and squashing cravings before they even start. Every meal, ask yourself this important question — "Where's the protein?"
  3. Daily Energy every day. This is my secret weapon! If you want to spend your day feeling full and satisfied after every meal, start the day with 1 scoop of Daily Energy. This is one of the best things I do for myself every single day. Every time I drink it, I can just imagine it plugging in all the nutritional "holes" inside my body to help me feel my absolute best (not to mention it squashes hunger and cravings).

For me, Daily Energy is the best replacement for a multi-vitamin, green juice, Vitamins C and B complex, and probiotic all rolled into one delicious scoop that I can easily mix with water and drink in the mornings.
