#6: Are you eating enough vegetables to reduce cravings?

Tip #6:  Are you eating enough vegetables to reduce cravings?

When Doritos and Pretzels haunt our thoughts, it’s often our bodies calling out for vegetables. The cycle of empty calories leaves our nutritional fuel tanks continually depleted - creating a vicious cycle in which we continually reach for more gasoline from the wrong pump. Running on empty and masked by junk, sugar and carbs, our true needs often go unmet. If we replace the empty calories with more nutrient dense foods such as vegetables, these cravings may vanish.

If vegetables cross your mind as often as your high school chemistry class, you may wish to start slowly by introducing a salad each day and working up to 2-3 servings of vegetables at each meal. For those who wish for a rapid cravings overhaul, diving right in with a food-based cleanse or RESET program can completely re-architect your palette, leaving you knocking people over on your way to the veggie tray.
