On a personal level, where do your weaknesses lie within your diet? What tips do you have for our readers, to help keep those weaknesses at bay?
I have found that people who don’t eat enough protein and good fats are more likely to crave sugar and carbohydrate rich foods. I eat substantial, filling meals comprised of protein such as eggs, chicken, seafood or meat, along with lots of vegetables and good fats like olive oil, avocados and organic coconut oil. I snack on raw nuts and seeds if I get hungry. My focus is to nourish my body with nutrients that allow me to feel my best. When I crave a sugary treat, I have a small portion and don’t fret about it. Often, people are overly concerned about their weight and this leads them to being ‘really good’ alternating with ‘really bad’. I focus on eating delicious food each day that is high in healthy fats, so I feel completely satisfied after meals and am not left craving sweets afterwards.
