Food cravings are an intense urgent desire or yearning to consume a particular food which is much stronger than simply feeling hungry. Sweets, fatty foods and salt are the top three cravings that people tend to desire.
The most common food cravings are:
- Chocolate cake
- Ice cream
- Candy bars
- Junk/Fast foods
- Salty potato chips
According to the American Heart Association, Americans eat about 22 teaspoons of added sugars per day. Excess sugars, fats, and salt are associated with diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and more.
Reduce and eliminate cravings by:
- Balancing sugar levels with Advanced Metabo. Eating fruits and vegetable that are low in sugar and high in fiber and protein will help to maintain metabolism
- Maintaining sugar levels by drinking a high-quality protein supplement like Advanced Wellness Shake
Healthy fact: ¼ of cup of nuts or seeds will help decrease hunger, reduce cravings and maintain energy. Taking a fish oil supplement such as Advanced EPA/DHA will also help lessen hunger cravings and increase energy.
