Identify your craving triggers

Emotional eating is a real phenomenon. If you pay attention, you may find that your cravings are worse when you are stressed.

Eat a healthy fulfilling breakfast

Making the first meal the most nutritious one helps decrease both sweet and savoury cravings later on.

Eat meals at scheduled times

The secret to a controlled craving for food is by managing your meals and only eating at set times. No casual eating.

Keep a food journal

This may not totally help you control food cravings, but it could help you identify the times of day when your cravings are the strongest.

Eat a varied diet

Sticking to the tried-and-true may help you count calories, but it could also leave you feeling unsatisfied. Try healthy varieties or combinations of foods to stop those random food cravings.
