Food Substitutions to Fight Cravings
Sometimes we crave certain types of foods because our body is missing nutrients from other types of foods. If you want to avoid rather than fight food cravings try incorporating these various foods into your diet depending on what types of cravings you experience.
Chocolate: nuts, seeds, fruits and legumes – all high in magnesium that will curb chocolate cravings
Sugary Snacks: grapes, eggs, fruit, cabbage, cheese, broccoli, and sweet potato- high in phosphorus, carbon, sulfur and tryptophan
Simple Carbs: chicken, fish, nuts and beans- high in nitrogen
Fatty or Salty Foods: milk, cheese, Greek yogurt, fish and leafy greens- provides your body with missing calcium and chloride
