5 Best Tips to Conquer Cravings

This post was sponsored by Blue Diamond® as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

We’re in the middle of summer and with all the cookouts, beach trips, ballparks and vacations, we’re always on the move. This is so true for my family. It’s also during the summer months that we tend to get into mindless eating, including snacking.

5 Best Tips to Conquer Cravings

I have been really mindful of my eating and it’s been paying off so far. Now, I’ll be the first one to admit that trying to eat healthy when cravings are hitting hard is a motivation test. As a busy wife, mom and blogger, my days are always full and sometimes, it’s just easy to reach for the quick chips or crackers in between meals.

So today, I’m sharing with you some of the best tips I found to help me conquer my cravings!

5 Best Tips to Conquer Cravings

1. Avoid getting extremely hungry. Try to eat regularly throughout the day.

2. Plan your meals for the day or upcoming week. This way, you avoid the temptation of eating spontaneously.

3. Drink more water throughout the day. When you get the cravings, try and drink a glass of water instead.

4.  Identify the foods that trigger your cravings and make sure that you don’t keep them at home.

5. Have healthy snacks close at hand.  Opt for the ones that are low in carbs and have a good amount of protein.

I love snacking on fruits and nuts. One of my newest snack favorites are these whole natural almonds from Blue Diamond! They are a healthy snack option and is an excellent source of vitamin E and magnesium. Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds is not only a snack, it’s also the best way to enjoy the flavor of almonds whether you eat them as a snack, or as a topping to your salads and as an ingredient in your recipes. With family road trips, picnics and vacations this summer, these whole natural almonds are perfect and convenient for on the go snacking. Even better, my husband and kids love them too!

    I always have almonds on hand to snack on. They are the best snack.

    I don’t think we have this particular brand in the UK, but I have almonds, and other nuts between breakfast and lunch to keep me working well, and to keep the hunger pangs away.

  5. 07/20/2019 / 7:52 pm

    I totally agree about not keeping food that trigger craving at home to avoid binge eating hence I stock up on nuts and almond is one of our favourite ones

    I couldn’t agree anymore. I’m been craving for few days in a week. I need your tips for my eating struggles.

  8. 07/20/2019 / 3:02 am

    Hm great tips here, thanks so much for sharing this and taking us on this journey with you!

    Awesome Tips.. I think my major problem is getting extremely hungry before i start or even start considering to eat. well try this your tips and see how far.

  10. 07/20/2019 / 1:01 am

    Craving is one thing that I try to avoid especially I have a sweet tooth. I can’t seem to resist any caramel flavor food. Sometimes I can take caramel drink for the whole week which is way more than I should. But I’m learning to cut my routine now, and I love Almonds!

  11. 07/20/2019 / 12:03 am

    Cravings are my enemy! Thanks for these tips.

    Great tips! Healthy snacks and drinking water throughout the day work wonders for me!

  13. 07/19/2019 / 6:05 pm

    Super tips! Thank you. Working at home, it’s so tempting to snack all day. I need to try drinking more water. I already am a huge fan of snacking on almonds – sometimes with some dried apricots on the side (the combo tastes almost like eating marzipan). And I pretty much stopped buying any unhealthy food I shouldn’t be snacking on. 😉

  14. 07/19/2019 / 5:47 pm

    I always keep healthier snacks more readily available like nuts and fruit so I when the cravings hit, I can grab and go. Great tips here!

    Ahh resisting cravings is one of the hardest things about being healthy. I’m usually fine on my own but hard to resist saying no to snacks or meals with friends

  16. 07/19/2019 / 3:26 pm

    Great tips about cravings and how to control them! I’ve been finding myself craving the strangest things lately! Maybe I should keep a jar of almonds at my desk to help! Thanks for sharing!

  17. 07/19/2019 / 1:04 pm

    Almonds really do fill me up! They are a great snack to have on the road and at work. It is good to be prepared with some healthy snacks instead of ending up eating junk food.

  18. 07/19/2019 / 12:47 pm

    I always have a craving for hot, peppery foods so I love the idea about actually planning meals ahead. I would literally have hot dishes on menu. Anyway, I always have hot crunchy snacks in my bag just for that!

    I struggle with cravings and this helps greatly. Can never have too many tips!

  43. 07/18/2019 / 2:11 am

    One important thing I learned was to understand the different flavors and how they work together to figure out what flavors are missing and how to add a healthy option into that space.

  44. 07/18/2019 / 1:41 am

    Oh my gosh, you caught me right at the beginning of my new healthier eating diet! I’ve been trying to offset my cravings for junk food with healthier alternatives. This is just perfect!

    I have almonds with oats daily for my breakfast because it is full of good nutrient. I love Blue Diamond’s packaging, it is small and easy to bring around. I can bring around and snack anytime.

  48. 07/17/2019 / 10:29 pm

    Oh my! My cravings are far from healthy and I think it’s probably because most times I am extremely hungry, the other times, I just want to chew on something. I have at least gotten five tips. Thanks for sharing.

  49. 07/17/2019 / 10:04 pm

    Nuts really do help. I need to get some asap so I have something to grab that is healthy and crunch.

  54. 07/17/2019 / 1:44 pm
