becoming a healthy you - cravings

Posted Sep 14 2012 10:03am
many of you may remember me from my last blog
and if you do then you know that i love to talk about health
i decided that I will start a small little series for you guys that are starting to be health conscious
today we will talk about cravings  we all get them
here are a few helpful tips to help you recognize what your body is missing when craving certain items
lets get started!
 
*a lot of women will say that they are craving chocolate, especially when on their period
this mean your body is lacking magnesium
to learn about the importance of magnesium click here
to cure this craving eat nuts, seeds, legumes, and fruit instead
 
 
* so you want something sugary and sweet? don't we all!
your body is then telling you that you need chromium , carbon , phosphoroussulfur , tryptophan
{click each word to learn more}
chromium you want to eat broccoli, grapes,  cheese, and chicken
carbon fresh fruit
phosphorous chicken, beef, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes, and grains
sulfur cranberries, horseradish, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage
tryptophan cheese, lamb, liver, raisins, sweet potato, spinach
 
* now you're thinking carbs... bread, toast, pasta... yum!!
then you are missing nitrogen !
eat some high protein foods instead such as meat, fish, nuts, and beans
 
* oil and fatty foods yuck!
we don't want this in our body whatsoever
instead it's telling you that you are missing calcium
so of course you want to eat milk, cheese, yogurt, legumes, broccoli, and green leafy vegetables
 
* lastly... salty food. you know those crab chips that you may devour during RHONJ
oh, come on! i don't do that!!! ;)
you need chloride or silicon then
for chloride you want to eat fish or goats milk
and for silicon you want nuts and seeds; avoid unrefined starches
 
whew! that's a lot of info for one day
but seeing this chart will help you make better food choices next time you reach for that candy bar
or that extra roll from dinner
i hope this helps you become a healthy person
its never too late to start!
 
** please note: i am not a nutrionist/dietician, but i do lot's of studying on health and the body. what works for one person may not work for the other. this information was gathered from various sources including Lux Coaching and weight managemet
