But then, there won’t be any stress, so there won’t be any need for stress eating!
I once read a book by Suzanne Somers, and was quite shocked to see the line-up of supplements that she takes to control cravings for carbohydrates.
While it can seem like trying to stop a moving train, there are quite a few strategies to control cravings and stop stress eating during the holidays.
I am working on a full report (stay tuned), but for now, a few strategies are key:
1. Chromium (especially the GTF varieties, and especially in combination with L-Glutamine). These supplements have a subtle effect that can make a big difference. Consult your doctor before taking ANY nutritional supplements!
2. Use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to control stress, stress eating and emotional eating during stressful times, like NOW! Learn it and use it. EFT can be used to reduce food cravings, and control blood sugar levels.
If you haven’t seen my latest article on ice cream cravings, read it here.
3. Keep up with your exercise routines. As time gets short, exercise gets short-changed. Even if you can devote 20-30 minutes per day, you reduce stress and feel better.
4. Make sure you get enough nutrition. With all the high-carb foods available, nutrition suffers. Be sure to get the good stuff in, and you will not only feel better, but strengthen your immune system to ward off colds and flu.
5. Stop night eating, so you get a better night’s sleep. Wrap up the day’s eating at dinner, and relax during the evening. If you have chores to do, try to finish them as quickly as possible, so you can get a good night’s sleep. If you have difficulty doing this, use the Night Eating CD.
