Eat Clean Diet was developed by Tosca Reno, if you read Oxygen magazine then you know who she is. She went from being over 200 pounds to a fitness competitor and she is over 50! She is honest, real and tells you how it is because she has been there herself.I P.S. If I can look like that at 50, I swear...Her body is pretty sick.
I picked up the Eat Clean Diet book last year and although it has the word "diet" in it, it is more of a way of life. That is what this is all about right? We want to to things that we can keep doing for the rest of our lives to stay in the fantastic shape that we are getting into. If you have a chance you should pick up the book from your local library or ask for it on your next bday/Mother's Day.
I get the newsletter emailed to me and this issue had some great info on how to beat late night cravings. I have attached a few of the ones that I thought were helpful:
I find late-night cravings normally come from boredom and not hunger. I stay busy in the evenings and they pass without a pig out.
I have found that [cravings] are rarely hunger related for me and that they will pass. So I distract myself. I take a bath with a great Oxygen mag and I brush my teeth. Nothing tastes very good after that, and I would hate to do it again!
With 5 meals a day and 100 plus oz of water, it's usually not an issue. However, when and if this problem arises, my answer is: ?water water water! I know that if my mind is saying 'snack,' it really means, 'H20.
I just had a piece of gum – it helps when I have the late night munchies … something to chew on!
I fix a nice steaming cup of decaf hot tea and sip it as I relax on the couch. It is calming and comforting
To satiate your evening hunger, try having one of the following small meal options:
If I get the urge, I'll try to stick to fruits and nuts.
Sometimes just a few spoons of yogurt/cottage cheese will do the trick.
I like the brushing the teeth idea, I don't know about you but once my teeth feel clean, I don't want to eat anything.
Have a great night! Thanks to all who comment! You keep me going!
