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.
