Yes we all have them. They’re completely normal. The real challenge is not giving into them too often. Learning what causes your cravings and how to manage them will help you stay on track🤔
:
First off, a craving is not hunger. When you’re hungry, your body has various ways of telling you that it wants and needs sustenance. It requires fuel to keep running, and pretty much anything will do…..
:
A craving is a hankering for a specific food ― usually the type that is not part of your healthy eating plan🌭🍕🍩
:
When you crave a certain food, your brain generates vivid images of that food, reinforcing the craving and making it more powerful 😈
:
CRAVINGS = SNACKING = INCREASED CALORIES = WEIGHT GAIN = INCREASED SUGAR LEVELS = CRAVINGS….. bla bla bla and so it goes on.
:
So how do we stop them?
:
Here’s a few tips to get you started✍🏻
:
Be sure to eat 2-3 balanced meals a day to include protein, good fats & good carbs (green leafy veg, root veg and wholegrain varieties as often as possible)
🥦🥬🥑🍠🥚🥜
:
Be proactive; eat regularly and don’t let yourself get too hungry
:
Food prep – prepare your food in advance, batch cook and freeze to avoid reaching for a quick fix
:
Drink plenty of water; sometimes your body mistakes thirst for hunger 💦
:
Make sure you’re allowing yourself 1-2 days a week flexible eating to enjoy some of the things you love so you don’t feel deprived 🍷
:
When a craving strikes, focus on something else; go for a walk, meditate, read, etc. 🙏🏼
:
When a craving hits, track it. Write it down and note what you’re doing when it strikes, how you’re feeling and how you handled it. This helps you better understand and control them so you don’t have to cave to cravings.

I’ve really enjoyed this programme, having done the 4 week lift lean in Jan which was really quite strict with the food and intense with the daily workouts I’ve actually seen better results this time around.

I like having a choice of workouts as if I’m not keen on doing one 2/3 times through I just pick an alternative to make up the time. Like you Malinda I found it difficult to keep up with the workouts every day what with two young kids and work 4 days a week. I didn’t beat myself up if I didn’t do it this time though as I knew that if I got to class a couple of times a week and kept on top of the eating I could at the very least maintain the weight.

Hi Lindsay, the Elevate program has been a hit for me. I’ve enjoyed the different options each week. Wednesday nights class was a challenge but a good one. I also liked the daily choice of online exercises. Results for me were 3kg weight & 4.5 ins loss. 

I’m ready for my trip to Australia to visit my son ✈️?❤️. Sorry but won’t be back to class till November ?. 
Thanks again Lindsay for your encouragement, endless energy & support xx

I lost 2lb in weight and 5.5 inches in total. I’m really pleased with the inch loss but was hoping for a few more pounds to have gone! However I’m pleased because it’s still a loss. 

I had gestational diabetes in both pregnancies, so I’m high risk to develop type 2 at some point during the rest of my life. I’m not going to let this happen so Elevate/Lindsay has helped get my mindset on track for this. Having ‘wiggle room’ and not beating myself up about it is such a positive thing- allowing myself this has actually meant I’ve got back on track again much quicker than I would usually.

I love my fitness pal and will keep it up mon-fri, the daily coaching from Lindsay was invaluable and set me up for the day in the right mindset.
I wasn’t fab at the daily workouts but did add more daily walks in, regular daily small changes is the way forward for me 

Loved having a different theme each week too. The most challenging for me was to eat varied meals and to post in the group..

Thanks so much Lindsay, looking forward to the November Elevate

My measurements and weight stayed the same, however, overall I feel less bloated and more toned and my clothes feel looser.

I didn’t really want to lose too much weight, just tone up and I feel that I have achieved this. I also feel that my digestion problems are more under control now I eat cleaner and I think I have a better understanding on the food that triggers my ibs cramps.

Paula Trainer

I’m definitely more alert & my energy levels have improved. My sleep as also improved.

I found the daily coaching really useful. Maybe 7am is too early for some. It was okay for me as I’m at work by 7, but maybe 7.30am better. I definitely think mornings are better. 

I’ve booked on the November course so my goal is to continue with food food protocol that works best for me, along with tracking my inch loss. I’ve decided not to track my weight as it’s left me really disappointed each week. 

Thanks for your support Lindsay Williams

So excited as I approach the end of the programme. Have lost 4lbs and although I didn’t take accurate body measurements at any point during the programme, I know I have lost mass as I can now fit into clothing that I couldn’t before! 

I’m feeling a lot fitter and more energetic and I am determined to keep up the regular exercise. Have also bought myself several keto recipe books to ensure I stay focused and motivated to keep going as I am loving the variety and naturalness of the food. Thanks Lindsay x
