French fries, pizza, chocolate, chips, bread, donuts… You may crave any or all of these regularly. And you know how hard it can be to refuse your cravings.
If you decide to have just one (or indulge just this one time) is it actually a choice?
Science says NO.
In fact, according to The Power of Habit, 40% of our daily decisions are not choices but habits!
How Do Cravings Start?
We’re triggered by a cue (it’s 12pm) and we get a craving (I want lunch). As a result, we go through our habitual routine (eat a sandwich) and get our reward (feel satisfied, not hungry).
Some of our most powerful habits revolve around what we eat, and kick in with triggers like this:
- You’re bored or tired mid-afternoon, so you go for vending-machine chips for a pick me up
- You want to celebrate, so you eat a piece of cake with your friends
- You miss your mom’s home cooking, so you order your favorite comfort food (mac and cheese)
Can Habits Be Changed?
You can change your habits, but only when you become aware of them.
When you realize you’re eating out of boredom, fatigue, or loneliness, you can shift to a non-food routine. For example, you can chat with a coworker to break through boredom. Take a nap and crush your fatigue. Or call a friend to wipe out loneliness. Eventually, the urge to eat will disappear.
And if you’re actually hungry and need a snack, make it 100% good for your weight loss goals! Here’s a terrific list of over 50 low-carb snacks that can help crush cravings.
At Personal Trainer Food, we know how important having the right snacks on-hand is. It’s a great defense for whenever you feel a craving come on.
