Additional tips that can be REALLY effective at minimizing those cravings during the holidays:
- Start your day with 20-25 grams of a high-quality protein source. A GREAT way to do this is by drinking a GREAT meal replacement/protein drink/medical food from on of the great companies out there: Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Orthomolecular Products, Thorne Research, etc.
- Try taking 200mcg of chromium 1-3x/day. This important mineral has a lot of positive impact on blood sugar and insulin thus can be important in helping to control those carbohydrate and “sugary food” cravings.
- If the cravings are REALLY strong – try immediately drinking two BIG glasses of water and go find a healthy protein source and take a few bites of this. This helps fill you up, stops cravings, and improves hydration.
