What Are Your Cravings Telling You…
We look at cravings as bad or annoying these days. Not all cravings are bad! It can be so frustrating to be doing great with your eating habits then BOOM! Out of no where you get a crazy craving, that you just can’t stop thinking of. Instead of looking at cravings as such a bad thing, we should take a pause in our busy life and figure out what our body is telling us. We could be lacking something important biochemically or emotionally…
What is your body trying to tell you?
When we crave something, it is a lack of something in our diet or life. Have you noticed when people get stressed, most people will turn to food, because it is comforting and our body knows it will help calm us for that moment. Us ladies get cravings of chocolate usually around our time of the month, Why is that? Chocolate has magnesium in it and magnesium actually helps with cramping. Our body will crave the best tasting food with the nutrient that it needs at that time. Pretty cool, Huh?
