We all know that junk food is addictive but this does not stop us from stuffing our pie holes with pastries, chocolates, chips and other delicious fatty foods. This is because junk foods contain artificial flavours, which are designed to be as addictive as possible. This taste is in stark contrast to natural whole foods, whose taste and consistency are created by nature and therefore work with our bodies to satiate hunger and other nutritional cravings. So if you are a junk food addict, fret not, simply add these superfoods to your diet and over time you will notice that you no longer crave unhealthy food, but instead will want to eat healthy, balanced meals.
Seaweed: This is what is wrapped around sushi rolls, so the next time you head out to dinner, make sure you order sushi, because it is high in iodine and we need iodine for optimal functioning of our thyroid glands. It also keep you full and cuts down your junk food cravings.
Kale: This superfood is loaded with vitamins and is low in calories. If you do not like the bitter taste of this veggie, you can simply juice it with pineapple or any other fruit that you like. Kale eliminates cravings because like all greens it contains thylakoids, a compound, which slows down the digestive process and regulates the hormones.
Spinach: Is packed with folic acid, protein and potassium. Research shows that a cup of spinach contains more potassium than a banana. It is also low in calories and is beneficial for the eyes, skin and hair and can aid in weight loss. So, if you want to get slim and beautiful drink a spinach smoothie daily. This will also help keep unhealthy cravings at bay.
Broccoli: Contains large amounts of vitamin C and has more fibre than spinach and kale. So it keep yo satiated for a longer period of time, thereby preventing you from reaching out for that bar of chocolate or bag of chips.
REVOFIT TAKE: All of us have experienced cravings for sugary and fatty foods at some point in time. And, you may have noticed that the more we give into these cravings, the more junk food we end up eating. It is a vicious cycle. But, research shows that these cravings are a sign that our bodies needs certain minerals and that these minerals are only present in natural foods. So, if we want to rid yourselves of these cravings, we need to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
