How to Beat Pregnancy Cravings


by For Two Fitness

Cravings are a well known symptom of pregnancy (particularly odd cravings), and a lot of women feel like it’s a losing battle, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are top five tips to beat pregnancy cravings from Heather Montgomery. Learn more about Healther on Twitter (@HeathersLG), or ThroughHeathersLookingGlass.com

1.) Water: A lot of times, we are dehydrated and don’t know it. Especially as mamas-to-be, we need to be chugging water like it’s our job anyway. Sometimes hunger and cravings are really just thirst in disguise, so drink up, wait a few minutes, and see if you kicked your craving for now.

2.) Go for a walk: Sitting in the kitchen staring at the refrigerator thinking about how badly you want that fudge brownie ice cream is not going to make standing strong any easier. Get outside, go for a walk, remove yourself from the situation and the temptation. Hopefully in no time you will forget you even wanted a snack.

My willpower isn’t great, so I save myself the trouble and just don’t buy the stuff. I am way too lazy to go to the store when a craving hits, so as long as it isn’t in my house, I am generally safe.

4.) Eat something else: If you truly are hungry, try eating something healthy to see if it makes your cravings go away. It may just hit the spot!

Veggies, anyone?

5.) Give in…just a little: I don’t believe in deprivation, and see nothing wrong with giving in to your cravings in moderation if you can handle having unhealthy things in your house without going overboard. Sometimes just a bite of chocolate or a scoop of ice cream will satisfy!
