Doing the Keto diet can be challenging, AT FIRST. Trying to overcome food cravings on keto will be part of the challenge. I don’t want to put you off. Once you are in the habit of eating Keto, it will become second nature.
You only have to get through the initial learning and body adjustments.
One of the adjustments is that your body will have cravings. There are several reasons for this, and can even be genetic.
The why doesn’t matter. All that matters is you get past the cravings. So here are a couple of tips.
When the cravings start, try drinking a glass of water with electrolytes. Many times, thirst can be misinterpreted by the body. It tricks you into thinking it wants food, when it needs liquids.
Next tip: Go for a 5 to 10 minute, brisk walk!
Sounds simple right. But don’t underestimate the power of this.
When you start your walk, you can even say to yourself, “I’ll have the chocolate (or whatever you are craving) when I get back. “ Don’t even make it a thing. Don’t feel you are denying yourself, just start the walk.
Stress can be one of the causes of cravings and binge eating. Walking is one of the most powerful stress busting techniques you can do.
After your walk, you will usually find the cravings have gone away or lessened a lot.
And there is another benefit.
If you get in a habit of walking when the cravings appear, you will change how your body deals with them. It will actually help break your desire to eat food that isn’t so good for you.
One more tip:
There will be times you can’t go walking, like if you are travelling or at work.
Simply bring an Avocado with you and use it to put down the craving.
Avocados are loaded with the best kind of fat. They have nutrients galore, like potassium and magnesium, and they’re low in carbs.
Avocados are craving killers.
And, as you know hopefully, eating avocados helps you get into Ketosis.
So, water, walk, or keto snack. Organize your lifestyle properly and it will be a breeze to overcome food cravings on Keto.
