Excessive craving for sugary snacks or other fattening foods have often shattered our weight loss diet. Since craving is unavoidable then there's not much sense in trying to curb it by using appetite suppressant pill.
While occasional craving is perfectly all right, I often find myself snacking excessively following the first bite of that Cheetos. If you are not the type of person who can't resist temptation like me, then you may not need this trick since occasional mars bars won't make you fat instantly. There is one trick I always use to curb my excessive snack craving.
I always use the "fruits" trick before I snack. The trick is simple, you should find one fruit that you like best and eat the fruit before you go snacking. You can continue snacking afterward. Most of the time, I felt that the impulse of snacking was not as strong as before I ate the fruit. This is because we give our brain time to overcome that 'rebellious' emotion. When we are on diet which restricts some of our favorite foods, our brain tends to lead a rebel supported by those restricted foods.
In my case I use strawberry since it is easier to eat than apple and orange. The taste is great and the size is small. In fact, snacking strawberry resembles snacking for chips for me. In conclusion, name your favorite fruit; keep a stash of them handy; eat them before you eat your snack! Good figure good health good life!
