Before I share my thoughts on fighting your food cravings, this is a post from our #TBT Q&A series.

THROW BACK THURSDAY LOGO

Every Thursday, we will be uploading one #TBT question to our YouTube channel, from our old #LLTV Q&A series that I filmed in 2012.

Here is today’s viewer question on how to stop your cravings for junk food quickly

How do you fight your cravings for more food?

The simple answer is, I eat more food.

But when I say food, I’m talking about real whole food.

How To Stop Your Cravings For Junk Food

Food that is full of fiber and the key nutrients that keep you feeling full, for longer periods of time.

When you eat food that is void of all nutrition, like the white flour and sugar, it throws your blood sugar levels all over the place.

These foods also do not fill you up.

We call these empty calories

Empty calories come from foods and liquids that do not fill you up, and do not provide your body with healthy nutrients.

These empty calorie foods do not provide you with anything, except for throwing your hormone levels all over the place and putting your body at risk for storing fat.

Therefore it’s important to stay away from empty calories foods and replace them with whole foods.

People often ask me if I count calories

When I first got started my Live Lean journey, I did count calories.

I believe it’s very important for people to understand the value of a calorie, as well as where your calories are coming from.

For example, if I look at a chicken breast, a tablespoon of almond butter, or a piece of fruit, I can roughly tell you how many calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates is in it.

Since I spent time counting calories, I now have that education.

However, now I don’t need to count calories anymore, because I know what my body needs, I know the energy that I require, and I know how to burn it off.

So here are my tips.

My late night snack when I have cravings

Here is what I make when I have a late night snack craving.

I posted this on my personal @BradGouthro Instagram page.

By the way, if you’re not following me on Instagram, you’re missing a lot of valuable tips that I share.

I will go to the fridge and eat a tablespoon of almond butter and a hot green tea.

This may not sound very soothing, but the almond butter is very satiating and delicious.

I absolutely love almond butter, which means it doesn’t stay in my kitchen very long, because I attack it.

I don’t know why, but I also love to drink green tea.

Maybe it’s just the soothing effect of having something hot going into your body.

It just makes me feel calm and satiated.

Lastly, lets be real.

Most times at night, you’re really not that hungry, you’re probably just a little bit bored.
