[MURAD ZAIDI'S FIT TIPS OF THE DAY]
Hey Guys, how's everything going?
Craving for something sweet? Yum!But wait a minute! you're on diet! It is important to realize that a craving is NOT the same as hunger. It’s not your body calling for energy, it is the brain calling for something that releases a lot of dopamine in the reward system.
However, if you get a craving AND you’re hungry, that just makes it worse.A craving combined with hunger is a powerful drive that most people’s willpower will have a hard time overcoming.Finally, say goodbye to your diet!
How to curb your craving? opt for alternative and healthier food.
If you craving for:
1. Something Salty (Etc Potato chips) - Eat Air popped popcorn with sea salt instead
2. Something Sweet (Etc M&M's) - Eat dark chocolate instead.
3. Caffeinated drinks - Drink coconut water instead.
However if you can eat junk food every now and then without bingeing and without it ruining your progress, then it's okay. Remember,moderation is the key!
