colder weather................. nibbly?!................

Everybody has weak moments in their diet when they can practically taste the salty, sweet, crunchy, or fatty foods they crave. Yet these are often the very foods that undermine your efforts to maintain your weight. After all, when is the last time you complained about craving cauliflower?

Follow these strategies to STOP cravings in their tracks.

Eat a healthy breakfast. For some people, cravings are part of a cycle of blood sugar highs and lows that can be kicked off almost the moment their feet hit the floor in the morning.

A breakfast featuring a Herbalife HEALTHY MEAL is more likely to control this cycle. Consider trying one of our shake recipes for variety

Get enough sleep. Loss of sleep increases hunger during the day, which leads to cravings. Getting the right amount of shut-eye could stop cravings. (if you struggle to sleep try out Herbalife TANG KUEI)

Eat meals at scheduled times. The secret to stopping cravings is to manage hunger and “only eating at set times — space your meals and your snacks 2.5 to 3 hours apart

(stay fuller for longer with Herbalife FIBRE & HERB)..... and LOTS OF WATER WATER WATER WATER

great tip ... (SET YOUR ALARM ON YOUR CELL PHONE, let it repeat every day at a certain time)

Make the foods you crave difficult or impossible to get to. No matter how much you love brownies, if you don’t keep any at home or at work, chances are your craving will pass unsatisfied. Instead, make healthy alternatives easy to access in your eating plan and prepare ahead for those times when you’ll need a healthy snack within easy reach, like when you’re on the road.

Find healthy alternatives. If you tend to crave sweet treats in the afternoon, having an apple with some nuts can prevent a mad rush to the vending machine for a chocolate bar. A yummy Herbalife protein bar is a fantastic option as it still gives you that sweet taste.

Identify your craving triggers. Emotional eating is a real phenomenon. If you pay attention, you may find that your cravings are worse when you are stressed or depressed. Managing those situations will help stop cravings (are you over emotional and stressed out? Herbalife TANG KUEI)

Eat a varied diet. Sticking to the tried-and-true may help you count calories, but it could also leave you feeling unfulfilled. People need variety in their diets, so try all the recipes sent to you on a weekly basis. Just because you’re maintaining your weight doesn’t mean it can’t be satisfying.
