Do you struggle with cravings? Its one of the most common complaints a Nutritionist works with in new clients and there is a real reason cravings exist!
The TOP 4 causes of cravings I see are:
1) Blood sugar instability – Not eating on a routine or consuming high glycemic foods often.
2) Nutrient deficiencies - When our body is lacking key nutrients it can turn up the volume on hunger and cravings.
3) Dehydration – Often dehydration is misinterpreted as hunger and even cravings.
4) Feeding the wrong gut bacteria. The bacteria in your gut have a huge influence on the foods we crave.
Stay tuned over the next couple days as we dig into each of these together!
