How to stop food cravings

How to stop food cravings

When you try to lose weight you get food cravings. Why? Because you have taught your body and your brain to a certain type of diet – a diet that has made you gain weight. When you try to change your diet your brain doesn’t seem to be very happy. You can almost hear it scream ”Hey, I don’t want this! I want all the ”good stuff” I had before”.

Low glycemic diet… Most of us have heard about it but what is it all about? It sounds complicated but it’s not. And it makes a lot of sense.

It seems to me that whenever there’s new research on diets it seems that glycemic index is in one way or another behind most of the modern diets that are considered effective. If you are not familiar with this concept, then here’s a little guide for you, an ABC of GI.

Whole30 and 30 Day Shred week 3

Another week on Whole30!

Overall week 3 has been interesting. I haven’t accomplished as much as I hoped: I haven’t eaten proper breakfasts (= more than just fruits) and I haven’t had any fish.

But then again I have started shredding again! Not as much as I would like to but I’ve done four 30 Day Shred workouts this week – that is certainly an improvement to my zero workouts last week

Here’s my week 3 report:
