Stop Cravings Now

Live Lean Nation, are you one of the many people that constantly battles cravings? If so, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m sharing the simple steps I take to outlast my cravings all day long.

Lets be real. Whether it’s sugary candy, chocolate, pizza, ice cream, or salty french fries, we all have cravings.

Some people have cravings mid-afternoon, others may have them late at night.

So before we move on, let me know in the comments below:

What time of day do you mainly get your cravings?

Mine tend to be mid-morning or later at night.

So since we all get cravings the real difference between people living lean and those who aren’t … is how we react to the cravings.

Let me put it this way…

Just because you’re craving a chocolate bar…

It does not mean your body actually needs a chocolate bar to survive.

The triggers for cravings go deeper than that.

These cravings could be caused by unbalanced hormones such as low blood sugar from not eating enough food throughout the day.

You know what then happens…you leave the office for the day and by the time you get home, you’re a freaking monster looking for the quickest rush of sugar you can get.

Sound familiar?

Cravings can also be caused by stress, and of course depression. In other words, we seek comfort food.

To help STOP cravings, here are…

6 Steps to Outlast Your Cravings All Day

#1. Lemon water:

I start my day with a glass of room temperature lemon water. Simply mix water with ½ the juice of a lemon. By doing something healthy for your body first thing in the morning, you set your day up right.

#2. Coconut oil coffee:

I find the combination of MCT fats from the coconut oil and the caffeine from the coffee helps lower my appetite. I usually have one cup in the morning and one cup in the mid afternoon.

#3. PFF breakfast:

In other words, a meal comprised of protein, fat, and fiber. I’ve talked about this numerous times on this channel and have shared many of my breakfasts every morning over on our 2nd YouTube daily vlog channel: BradGouthroTV. I usually have an open faced egg omelette with ground beef, spinach, salsa and spices, and almonds. Keeps me full and my happy chemicals flowing through my body all day long.

#4. Get in a good workout:

Once again, when I do healthy things to my body like working out, I feel better about fueling my body with real food. Ironically it’s the days where I’m not as active that I have the most cravings.

#5. Planning & preparing meals and snacks:

By having a meal plan and having food and snacks prepared and ready to go, it gives you a plan to follow. It’s just like having a properly structured workout program to follow…when you have a meal plan to follow, you’ll feel more organized and committed to stick to it.

#6. Delicious and soothing tea:

When you get those late night cravings, try a soothing hot tea. It always soothes me. And if that’s not enough, take a spoonful of almond butter. A healthy way to hit the spot.

Bottom line:

Everyone has cravings. But what’s separates the Live Leaners from the rest is how we react to it.

As Live Leaners, we give ourselves one cheat meal a week if we stick to our workouts and healthy eating. In this case, feed the craving. However, be sure to get right back on track after that cheat meal.

And if you’re looking to minimize cravings, try implementing these 6 steps into your day. They’ve done wonders for me and many other Live Leaners.

  1. I am a night owl and I have my bad food cravings at night (sugar!). I
    should just go to bed, but the later I stay up, the higher my cravings get!
    My willpower is best every morning, but I really don’t like waking up early
    lol

  2. Late at night i have been trying to lose mg belly fat for 2years but i cant
    find the right workout can u help me

  3. Hey Brad! Does dark chocolate (1-2 cubes) mixed with a bit of nut butter
    and fruit, in your opinion count as a huge cheat? How much could it spike
    your blood sugar? Reason why I ask is because I tend to get low blood sugar
    and the chocolate (not all the time, but 1-2 a week) tends to balance me
    out for the afternoon until about 3-4. Thanks, Mike

  4. Hey Brad great tips. I don’t like coffee, but with all the other tips I
    think I can survive thanks bro. Big fan

  5. I was just wondering your opinion on intermittent fasting combined with a
    program like yours how do you feel about that?

  6. I have cravings in the early morning. Then mid-morning. Late morning. Early
    afternoon. Mid afternoon. Late afternoon. Early evening. At night. Then at
    midnight. Other than that, no real cravings to speak of.

  7. Good tips buddy. I already do the lemon water in the morning. Will try the
    other 5 out. Love the humor. COOKIES!!! That was funny as sh$t!

  8. gr8 episode!
    something that helps me at night to not eat anymore even when I do have the
    craving
    is I brush my teeth and that helps to not eat anymore!

  9. I have coconut oil coffee pre workout and post workout breakfast I have a
    coffee protein shake. So that I can have that extra boost of energy to keep
    me going for the day… Is that healthy?

  10. I found that after years of living lean, you just don’t get the cravings
    anymore. If I do want something, it is because I want it, not crave it.
    It is just a byproduct of living lean. Cravings are hard to combat for a
    lot of people. The best thing is like Brad said, get that PFF breakfast in
    ya. So many people have a poor breakfast that it just sets them up for a
    bad day. Start right and you will have a much easier time. Great tips.
    Thanks for the vid.

  11. Brad I know I have been commenting on ur videos for a while but I fell off
    the paleo diet and started bulking,I’m now the heaviest I’ve ever been put
    on some good muscle and fat obviously haha but it’s now time to start
    living lean again so I’m back with u! Need to lose 8% bodyfat,tough times
    ahead, I always get cravings at night time when I’m settling down for the
    night I usually have a cuppa tea with a chocolate bar,I didn’t have one
    tonight so hopefully I can carry on being strong,I have 5bars in the
    freezer n I hope there’s still 5 in another 6days!

  12. I get cravings late at night… it’s like a version of the munchies 😛 I
    try to ignore it and sleep although I have given in a lot of times :/ I’ll
    try doing the things you talked about 🙂 Thank you so much as always!

    Something I’ve noticed is that most people go grocery shopping while
    hungry or on an empty stomach which makes them loose self-control and buy
    junk. Maybe you should o a video on that? 😛
