Do You Crave Carbs? Here are Some Tips that Can Help

simple-carbsIn a nutshell, carbohydrates convert into sugar within the body, which is tough when you’re trying to lose weight. Though not all carbs are created equal, you may find that carbohydrates give you a similar craving to that of candy or other sweets.

Overcoming carbohydrate cravings

  • Get rid of all white flour products including white bread, white rice, instant mashed potatoes, crackers, potato chips, processed pasta, and muffins.
  • Empty the freezer of French fries, hash browns and premade breakfast foods like frozen waffles.
  • Stock up on 100 percent whole grains like whole-wheat bread and old-fashioned oatmeal.
  • Experiment with new grains like barley, millet, amaranth, whole-wheat couscous or bulgur.
  • Pack lunches and snacks with healthy foods like cheese.
  • When a carb craving hits, ask yourself what you really want. Are you just trying to fill an emotional need? Do you want something creamy, sweet, or cold? Do you want something crunchy or chewy?
  • Find alternative activities. Get a manicure, clean your closets, or spend time playing a game with your kids when a craving hits.
  • Eat breakfast every day and don’t skip meals.
  • Take supplements like HTP-5 and Glutamine.
  • Add vitamins like Biotin and Riboflavin.
  • Eat more protein to stay satisfied longer.
  • Add flavor with spices and sauces.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Fix your gut by eliminating foods you are intolerant to such as dairy or gluten.

Alternatives to carbohydrates

  • Lettuce wraps instead of bread
  • Portobello mushroom “buns”
  • Eggplant  or zucchini for pasta
  • Butternut squash, turnips and carrots instead of French fries
  • Cauliflower in place of mac and cheese or mashed potatoes
  • Oatmeal
  • Shirataki noodles
  • Fresh, raw vegetables
  • Eat cooked eggs like a boiled egg for a snack
  • Sardines, and nuts (almonds, peanuts, pecans, walnuts) make great snacks
  • Add more beans, cauliflower, bananas, and mushrooms to your dishes.

Each particular food or food type has its own specific triggers. Knowing what triggers your food craving and how to overcome it will help you get past the urge. There are healthy alternatives to every craving type as well.
