29 Ways To Avoid Junk Food When You Have Out Of Control Food CravingsWhen was the last time you had a food craving?

Mine tend to appear in the evenings as I am relaxing, needing a treat or some entertainment.

Cravings happen even to the healthiest of us. Often, when a craving hits in the afternoon or the evening after dinner, we get the urge to snack.

Snacking can be a bad habit to get into, because the snacks we choose are often junky, un-nutritious, and high in calories, sugar, or fat.

The trick to snacking without piling on the pounds is to find healthy alternatives to the regular snacks you might normally reach for.

Usually, when we get a craving it is for either something sweet (chocolate!), savory (potato chips!), creamy (ice cream!), or crunchy (crisps!).

Obviously, my examples are foods you shouldn’t eat all the time if you want to be trim and healthy.

But that doesn’t mean you have to fight your cravings for the rest of your life. Instead, you just need to substitute.

Next time you get a craving for something sweet, why not try:

What kind of cravings do you get?  And what food satisfies your cravings?

If you are really struggling with out of control cravings and nothing from this healthy list will do, I’ve got good news for you.

I was once struggling desperately with chocolate cravings and none of the items from this list would satisfy my cravings apart from chocolate.

But the problem was – one piece of chocolate was never enough.  I had to eat a massive bar or a whole box at once.  

And if I got the taste of chocolate in my mouth I’d turn into the chocolate monster.  If I had no more chocolate in the house, I’d jump in my car and go and buy a box of chocolate.

It really was out of control and this problem lasted a year and a half until I found something that could help.

This free quiz was the starting point.  I promise you, you are going to be blown away by the revelation you are going to receive after going through this free quiz.  

Finally put an end to your out of control cravings just like I did by clicking here to take the quiz.
