WTF is a #FaveCrave? It’s a food that you normally consider a “bad” or “trigger” food that you actually make point to eat a small amount of throughout the day to avoid overeating it later. Seems like a counter-intuitive approach, but it actually works. Incorporating #FaveCrave foods is a strategy I implement every single day personally and have also used with other moms I coach. It’s been a real game-changer to break years of food obsession and binge-eating for so many. When we deprive ourselves of certain foods, we just seem to want them more, don’t we? Eliminating some of our favorite foods never really seems to work in the long-run.
FaveCrave looks different for everyone. The only requirement is that it has to be a food your love.
Salty snacks. Sweets. Full-fat salad dressing vs. that watered down dirt-tasting substance also known as fat free ranch dressing. FaveCrave foods can literally be anything. Team Sweet-Tooth over here 🙋🏻♀️. I always eat something sweet after every single meal (even breakfast. Hellooooo breakfast cookies!). It's super-satisfying for me to eat a few bites of something sweet throughout the day and is a preventative measure I take so that I don't eat a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream every night before bed. •
Aaannnndddd lets be honest here. From time to time just a few bites ain’t gonna cut it. Because, well, no one is perfect, and Ben and Jerry's is awesome. I mean have you even tried the Pecan Sticky Bun flavor yet? SO. DELICIOUS. But tonight and most nights, a few spoon-fulls and I’m good 👌
