Don't blame your chocolate craving on a lack of willpower. Turns out, there's a physiological reason ice cream, french fries, and cupcakes are so hard to resist: Our bodies are wired to crave rich food. Studies have shown that the taste of fat can give us the munchies by triggering a release of chemicals similar to those experienced by drug addicts. "Some people are hypersensitive to food, " says Eric Stice, PhD, a senior research scientist at the Oregon Research Institute. "They find things like chocolate cake orgasmic, so they tend to overeat it."
The trick to keeping your appetite in check is avoiding foods that make you lose control. That's tough to do when you're surrounded by mouthwatering choices everywhere you go, but Stice says that a technique called mindful resistance can help. "If you're tempted to have a scone with your coffee at Starbucks, instead of thinking about how delicious it will taste, tell yourself you'll get health benefits such as a smaller waist or a healthier heart from not having it, " he says. "Doing this actually changes your brain by strengthening the area that helps you resist things and weakening the region that makes you think of treats as a reward."
In addition, eat healthy foods throughout the day to keep your glucose, which fuels your body, at a high level so that you feel energized and satisfied. You'll also be better able to resist cravings when you snack on nutritious choices like fruits and vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and whole-grain bread topped with a little peanut butter, according to a recent study that showed that eating consistently helps us control our impulses.bloating after ovulation blogging income after 1 year what after blogging career after blogging retired now what blogs can i retire now blog to blog or not to blog blogging is blogging about blogging blogging as a hobby blogging as a job blogging as a business model blogging as an educational tool blogging as a nurse blogging at medium blogging at work blogging at fl250 blogging at 70 blogging at 40 blogging at 60 blogging at college blogging at the limit before blogging blogging platform before know before blogging tips before blogging considerations before blogging blogging behind the scenes psychology behind blogging secret behind blogging meaning behind blogging difference between blogging and vlogging difference between blogging and microblogging difference between blogging and content writing difference between blogging and website difference between blogging and podcasting difference between blogging and journalism difference between blogging and affiliate marketing difference between blogging and social media blogging beyond the classroom moving beyond blogging beyond blogging blogging by sophia lee blogging by numbers blogging by google blogging by maya bloggings by boz blogging by email blogging by definition blogging step by step blogging during covid 19
