How Nutrient Dense Foods Can Curb Cravings
It is a known fact that eating sugary, fatty foods causes people to crave even more of the same, unhealthy foods. Unbalanced eating habits become a vicious cycle that can lead to excess weight gain and a host of other health problems. Thankfully, there is a way out of this cycle. Research indicates that eating healthy foods on an ongoing basis can literally "reset" the brain so that you crave healthy snacks and meals instead of unhealthy ones.
How it Works
Your body needs certain nutrients in order to operate properly. You can get these from eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats. If you are eating a balanced diet every single day, you should feel fine. You may want to have an occasional treat from time to time but you won't feel a craving for unhealthy snacks on a regular basis. Instead, your body will ask for the food it really needs, be it a healthy, high-carb snack, a piece of fruit or a cup of milk.
Naturally, it takes time to become accustomed to eating mostly healthy foods. You may really want your favorite junk food snack even after a satisfying meal. If you are used to eating more food than you should, it can take time to adjust to healthy servings. However, don't give up on your healthy eating plan even if you feel uncomfortable at first. With time, your brain will adjust and you'll feel just fine without regular junk food intake.
