Hi Fit Girls! This month I received a couple of messages from girls all around the world, asking for tips against the urge to have a major snack attack.
We all have these moments where we wanna give up on our healthy lifestyle for a day, and snack on chocolate, pizza and icecream all combined. Or we can’t resist all the sugary treats on a party or at the office. I work in a hospital and there’s ALWAYS cake or chocolate lying around, haha, so I had to teach myself some self control!
In this blog I’ll share my top 7 tips with you for getting rid of your inner snack monster.
1. Don’t starve yourself
Personally, I have much more urges to snack when I haven’t had enough to eat. If you want to learn more about your eating pattern, track your intake for a week using an app (i.o. MyFitnessPall). Make sure to eat no less then 1500 calories! I eat about 2000 calories a day and more than 200 grams of carbohydrates (although I don’t track them daily) and I still lose fat mass, because I’m living an active lifestyle. Your body will work the same. So, eat up!
2. Plan your meals ahead
When you know what your next meal is gonna be, it’s much easier to say “no” when somebody offers you an unhealthy snack. Also, consider planning a “cheat meal” so you can look forward to that moment.
