Got a Craving? What Your Body Actually Wants You To Eat

Share

If You�re Craving Something Sweet

It�s easy to get a quick sugar fix from foods that might be lying around (hello, blueberry muffins in the office kitchenette). Chances are, though, that you’re already eating way too much sugar; the average person takes in 22 teaspoons of�sugar daily�more than three times the amount suggested by the American Heart Association. A growing body of research links the sweet stuff to high cholesterol and blood pressure, increased risk for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, and�of course�excess weight gain. Plus, a sweet treat can cause a blood sugar spike and crash, leaving you feeling sluggish, moody, and hungry (again).

 

 

Reach For A Piece Of Fruit Instead

You’ll be satisfied�we promise. �When you craving something cold, creamy and sweet, think healthier options like frozen bananas, grapes, organic fruit purees, or homemade frozen yogurt pops,� suggests Natalia Levey, certified health and nutrition coach and author of Cravings Boss. Low-fat Greek or plain yogurt with some fruit on top is another nutrient-packed option. �The yogurt provides calcium which is good for your bones and the berries are packed with immune boosting antioxidants,� says Keri Gans, RD, New York City-based nutritionist and author of The Small Change Diet
