Am new here and would like to share some cravings crubbers I have tried and tested
1. Sugar craving - This tip was the best thing I learnt from my year at Fernwood Geelong. Buy 7 Chuppa Chupps (For those who don't know what this is, it is a hard boiled sugar lollipop) for the week and have one each day. The trick is to not have one at a go, but to have a few licks everytime u crave a sugar buzz. You'll be surprised, but one lolly can actually last a whole day. I wrap mine up back in cling wrap and stick it back in my draw at work. This stopped me from eating the charity sweets (I was personally funding the box at work
) and I have saved heaps of kilojoules this way!
2. Fat/Nut craving - Twice or Thrice a week, this one hits me .. and my body just craves for the nutty fat flavour, like in almonds and pistachioes. I read this tip somewhere a year back and it works like a charm! I cut a carrot into16 sticks and eat each stick with one almond ... chew them both together. It is amazing how well the carrots spread the flavour of the nut and I swear it is like eating a whole mouthful of nuts!! Instead of eating a whole bowl of nuts, I eat just a small handfull with carrots now and am just as satisfied and I feel great!
3. Salt craving - This is a tricky one, I am still trying to find a happy end to this issue ... any tips guys? At the moment, I am trying to eat cucumber sticks with loads of chicken flavoured salt (Yes, I know tht sounds weird!
.. kinda works for me though), but still can't help sorely missing cruchy potato chips
. Also small bags of microwave diet popcorn works too.
Can everyone post their tips here please? I am actually clutching straws with mine .... all these work only for a few months at a strech!
