"Health is adding a level of intention to every area of your life"
- Miranda Anderson
A signal from your body; your body is trying to get your attention that something in your body is out of balance
What causes cravings?
Lack of or Imbalanced Nutrients
Emotional Wellbeing as a Basic Need
Cromium, which is a trace mineral, helps regulate blood glucose levels, and can help eliminate cravings for sugar. Good food sources include shellfish, nuts, eggs, broccoli, brewer’s yeast, barley, oats and whole grains.
Chromium can also be supplemented – especially useful if blood sugar management is a known issue, dose is 500mg daily with meals
**(please check with your primary health care provider before starting any new supplements to make sure they are right for you)
Other nutrients that help support the elimination of cravings include zinc, L-glutamine & B Vitamins.
Long Term Solutions for Cravings
Eat a balance diet that has been tailored to your unique needs and situation - it may be necessary to consult a nutritionist (like myself) and/or have blood work done to determine any deficiencies.
It's also important to address and work on emotional ties to foods – you may need to enroll a professional to help you with this. Improving gut health is also crucial because if our gut is not functioning optimally, then this affects all other parts of our body.
