The weekend is here, you have been eating well all week but now beginning to feel the sugar cravings!!

 Cerus six tips to stop cravings for unhealthy food…

 Apples

Thanks to its high-water content, eating an apple before a meal has been shown to reduce the amount of food you consume. Naturally sweet and filling, an apple a day keeps hunger at bay and whilst having fantastic benefits for your skin.

Eggs

Eggs are one of the best sources of protein. Eating eggs for breakfast will ensure that your hunger won’t get a look in for hours. Studies have shown that eggs contain all the essential amino acids while also being considered as high-quality protein.

Green vegetables

Green vegetables, as well as other non-starchy vegetables such as carrots, are unmatched for their low calorie and high satiety ratio. Foods that contain high levels of water, dietary fibre, and protein tend to be the most filling. Broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, spinach and courgettes are top of the league. Load up on these vegetables and say sweet goodbye to your hunger.

Nuts

Nuts are notoriously dense in calories, but pistachios are much lower in fat and calories than their peers. A handful of Pistachio nuts will provide your body with healthy fats and keep you full for longer.

Watermelon

Watermelon is in packed with vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants and is ranked as a low-calorie food. More to the point, it tastes delicious and, thanks to its high-water content, scores highly on the satiety index.

Greek yogurt

Loaded with protein, Greek Yogurt has the ability to ward off hunger.

Protein’s ability to ward off hunger is renowned, and guess what, Greek yogurts loaded with it. It’s packed with calcium too, plus a whole lot of flavour, despite its low sugar and low-calorie count.

Protein

There are three prime reasons why whey protein is perfect for anyone following a weight-loss diet. Firstly, it’s low in calories: a scoop of protein mixed with water. Secondly, because protein is so closely linked to satiety. Thirdly, protein is a great snack on the go. Whether your mixing it with milk or sprinkling on top of your oats (which is delicious), protein has a fantastic ability to keep away the hunger pains.

Don’t forget, life is about balance… If you fancy a treat, don’t deny yourself.

 

Everything in moderation.
