Craving for Comfort
Experts believe that there is a strong association between food and emotion for many women, and this poses a serious challenge to healthy eating.
This research reinforces the idea that it's not the hunger for the particular food itself, but the feeling it provides that brings on a craving.
There are 5 things that trigger women to crave which are :
- Lack of control
- Feeling unappreciated
If you fit into any one of these five profiles, try sitting down with a piece of paper and brainstorming to find alternative behaviors to eating.
Remember that healthy eating doesn't mean you can't indulge yourself. Cutting out certain foods entirely is a negative approach that will only set you up for failure.
Try to maintain a balanced diet that includes lots of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean sources of protein. Prepare healthy snack options instead of heading to the vending machine. And don't forget that healthy eating goes hand-in-hand with exercise.
