The Art of Living Well Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

Marnie and Stephanie dive deep into the topic of cravings and explain how cravings are the body's way of communicating with us. 

Primary causes of cravings: Dehydration, Nutrient Deficiency, Relationships, Stress, Boredom, Foods from Childhood, Hormonal, Seasonal, Body Imbalance.

Challenge for the week: Every time you find a craving coming your way, stop to ask yourself these questions:

• Are you dehydrated?

• Are you nutrient deficient?

• Are you bored, tired, stressed?

• Is this a habit?

If so, jot down notes in a journal and see if you notice any patterns. Before you give into cravings, have a glass of water, take a few deep belly breaths or go for a walk outside and then decide if you are still actually hungry.
