Avoid Extreme Hunger And Fight Your Stress
Being hungry is one of the principal reasons why we have cravings. To avoid getting extremely hungry, it’s a good idea to eat regularly and have healthy snacks close by. By planning ahead and avoiding long periods of hunger, you may be able to prevent the craving from showing up in the first place.
Stress may also cause food cravings and influence your eating behaviors, especially for women. Women under pressure have been shown to eat significantly more calories and experience more cravings than non-stressed women.
Furthermore, stress raises your blood cortisol levels, a hormone that can make you gain weight, especially around the belly area. Try to minimize the stress around you by planning, meditating, and generally slowing down.
