Ula's Tip #4
Eat enough nourishing foods and get plenty of sleep (7 to 8 hours a night).
Often an overwhelming need for sugary food is generated because our body thinks we need to amp up because we didn't eat enough, didn't eat well or we're sleepy.
If you can't think of foods that treat you right, then here's a list that may spark some inspiration:
Here are foods that will nurture you, help you lose weight and curb those cravings:
* Leafy green vegetables (broccoli, kale, spinach, etc.)
* Carrots, tomatoes, peppers and an occasional avocado
* Soy or black bean patty burgers
* Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc.
* A handful of walnuts or almonds each day
* Lean meat like turkey or chicken
* Fish such as salmon
* Beans and other legumes
* Refrigerate sliced carrots or apples in baggies for quick snacks that reduce cravings
** List the foods you ate today at meal and snack time. If you haven't already, try to include choices from the list above and from Step #7.
If you're following this trail in the morning, then return after dinner and complete the list of what you've eaten today.
