Whether it’s ice cream, biscuits, potato chips, chocolate, or even peanut butter straight from the jar – we all have cravings sometimes while trying to lose pregnancy weight.
Cravings can strike from anywhere. Do these sound familiar?
- I’m bored…I need a biscuit.
- I feel so tired…I need some cake.
- I’m feeling a bit stressed…I need some potato chips.
But they key when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight is to stay strong and avoid continually giving in to these cravings – especially if they are hitting several times a day.
First of all, make sure you are planning for and eating your 3 main meals and 2 healthy snacks per day. Check out the 28 Day Challenge – this tells you exactly what meals and snacks you should be eating and takes the guesswork out of what to eat.
Secondly, if you are truly hungry then you should always eat something. Try a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts to stop hunger in its tracks.
Finally, if you really fancy something unhealthy we encourage you to do the switch and satisfy those pesky cravings with some healthier alternatives.
Haven’t got one of these healthy switches on hand? Try distracting yourself with another task, like going for a walk, calling a friend for a chat, or tidying the lounge room. You can also try drinking a glass of water, as we are often dehydrated rather than hungry when a craving hits.
