How Can One Control the Urge to Eat Junk Food?

Hello FitFam,

Hope you are keeping well. 

Cravings Cravings Cravings. While this is common, there are reasons why one craves so much. Read on to find out why and ways to curb them. 

You crave junk food when you eat unbalanced meals. One macronutrient that is mostly quite less in diets is protein and that is the number one reason for cravings. So if your diet is protein deficient increase your protein intake. This will keep you full for a long time and curb those cravings. 

The second thing is drinking enough water. The centres for thirst and hunger are right beside each other in our brains. Sometimes when you are thirsty you make misunderstand it for hunger and eat. When there is adequate water intake you won’t crave more.

So eat healthily and drink enough water to curb your cravings. If you have any questions, feel free to reach me.
