The real cause of your cravings

Lisa Austin Most Recent, Nutrition Related

How did you sleep last night … have you gotten in any workouts this week … are you focusing on whole foods … and how is your mood?

I’m asking because all of that is RELATED. 

When just one of those things is out of whack, it can throw everything else out of whack right along with it!

  • A bad night of sleep can throw your hunger hormones out of balance, making you feel hungry … even if you’ve eaten enough
  • A stressful day can leave you exhausted and craving comfort foods (and tempt you to skip your workout)
  • Lack of activity can drain your energy and also leave you tossing and turning
  • Eating too close to bedtime can make it hard to sleep
  • And on and on and on!

Each of those things above can affect your hormones and can make it really hard to stay on track. Whether it’s lack of sleep or too much stress that’s draining your energy it will be an uphill battle trying to keep those cravings in check.

So … if you’re having one of “those days” … try taking a step back to look at the bigger picture – and then take ONE ACTION to help you feel better (and get back on track).

Some reset ideas:

  1. Go outside for a brisk walk and fresh air – or make time for a workout 
  2. Take 5-10 minutes to sit in a quiet space and do breathing exercises
  3. Make sure your next meal is healthy & made of whole foods (including veggies!)
  4. Double-check your water intake for the day

This can be like hitting the “reset” button on your day and will help you make better choices moving forward.

And just like one thing can be out of whack throwing things off kilter, getting one thing back in alignment can also cause things to fall back into alignment.

If you slip up, that’s ok. Brush yourself off and do your best to make a better choice.

What’s ONE action you can count on to RESET your day? Keep this in your back pocket in case you need it!

Having a “big picture” viewpoint can make all the difference in your fitness and wellness – and it’s just ONE REASON why working with an experienced coach can help you get the results you want!
