People think food cravings are all about willpower but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Food cravings are one of the most complicated parts of dieting and living a healthy lifestyle.

I’d be lying if I said I never wanted to eat anything unhealthy.

But as a personal trainer and nutrition guru, over the years I’ve learned how to manage my cravings and channel them into healthier habits.

Check out my simple seven steps to handling food cravings—no obsessing or starvation required!

1. Figure out What You’re Craving Exactly

Often the hardest part of a craving is to figure out what you’re specifically craving.

When your cravings hit, do you go for sugar or salt?2

Creamy or crunchy?

Once you figure out what you’re specifically craving (whether it’s pizza, ice cream, or ice cream topped pizza), you’ll have a much easier time pinpointing what you really want.

Remember, there is nothing wrong with sitting with your hunger/craving until you figure out exactly what you want to eat.
