More causes of cravings:
- Skipping breakfast – breakfast is the most important meal! To have a successful start to your day, your body needs energy in the form of protein, carbohydrates and fibres.
- Drinking coffee all day long – your body is drained of energy – the body craves food in order to restore energy.
- Long intervals between meals (4-5 hours are perfect) – if intervals are too long, blood sugar levels get too low, headaches and lack of focus are the result.
The simple solution to prevent cravings: A meal with carbohydrates, proteins and lots of vegetables and salads. It start’s with breakfast! If you don’t like to eat breakfast or are in a hurry, try a shake with yoghurt, fruits and oats or simply an energy bar. After breakfast the body needs (approx. every 4 hours) a boost of energy in the form of fresh fruit (low glyceamic index!) like apples, cherries, plums, peaches, pears, strawberries or nuts (proteins!). Try to snack every couple of hours!
