We all get food cravings, let’s be real. But we shouldn’t get them on a daily basis. I’ve helped hundreds of people overcome their cravings, and it’s something I still see clients with on a weekly basis. Because of this I wanted to write this post. If cravings is something you’re struggling with hopefully I can help you overcome them! I know first-hand how much cravings can consume us. Before I studied nutrition, I was working in a corporate role and was struggling with health challenges. At that time I was a sugar-addict, chocolate and ice-cream consumed my mind daily, and I’d always give into them, only making my craving worse and my health challenges worse, so I know how it feels and how challenging it can be to over-come cravings.Read More
Those who have known me for a long time would know that I used to be totally obsessed and fixated by sugar, my 'sweet tooth' was out of control. After most meals I would crave something sweet, preferably chocolate or ice-cream, and I didn't know when or how to stop, the guilt and sickly feeling I would feel afterwards was horrible.
